Event-B is a formal method for modeling and verifying consistency of systems. In formal methods such as Event-B, refinement is the process of enriching or modifying an abstract model in a step-wise manner in order to manage the development of complex and large systems. To further alleviate the complexity of developing large systems, Event-B refinement can(More)
Event-B is a state-based formal method that supports a refinement process in which an abstract model is elaborated towards an implementation in a step-wise manner. One weakness of Event-B is that control flow between events is typically modelled implicitly via variables and event guards. While this fits well with Event-B refinement, it can make models(More)
Integrating graphical representations with formal methods can help bridge the gap between requirements and formal modelling. In this paper, we compare and evaluate two graphical approaches aiming at describing control flows and refinement in Event-B, and we use a fire dispatch system case study to perform this evaluation. The fire dispatch system case study(More)
Constructing traceable Event-B models from requirements is crucial in the system development process. It enables the validation of the model against the requirements and allows to identify different refinement levels, which is a key to successful formal modelling with a refinement-based method. Our objective is to present an approach based on the use of(More)
Data Integration Systems (DIS) are concerned with integrating data from multiple data sources to resolve user queries. Typically, organisations providing data sources specify security policies that impose stringent requirements on the collection, processing, and disclosure of personal and sensitive data. If the security policies were not correctly enforced(More)
Event-B is a formal method for modelling and verifying the consistency of chains of model refinements. The Event Refinement Structure (ERS) approach augments Event-B with a graphical notation which is capable of explicit representation of control flows and refinement relationships. In previous work, the ERS approach has been evaluated manually in the(More)
