The case study analyzed in the report involves the behavioral specification and verification of a three-stage pipeline consisting of mutually concurrent modules which also compete for a shared resource. The system components are specified in terms of Concurrent State Machines (CSM) and the verification technique used is the temporal model checking in the(More)
The paper presents a flexibility of management of vehicles in Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) network. The algorithm used for delivering empty vehicles for waiting passengers is based on multiparameter analysis. Due to its distributed construction, the algorithm has a horizon parameter, which specifies the maximum distance between stations the communications(More)
An engineering design process may involve software modules that can executed concurrently. Concurrent modules can be very easily subject to some synchronization errors. This paper discusses verification process for such engineering software. We present a method for verification that requires several steps. First, the state diagram models are constructed(More)
The case study analyzed in the paper illustrates the example of model checking in the COSMA environment. The system itself is a three-stage pipeline consisting of mutually concurrent modules which also compete for a shared resource. System components are specified in terms of Concurrent State Machines (CSM) The paper shows verification of behavioral(More)
The aim of this paper is to demonstrate how the COSMA environment can be used for system modeling. This environment is a set of tools based on Concurrent State Machines paradigm and is developed in the Institute of Computer Science at the Warsaw University of Technology. Our demonstration example is a distributed brake control system dedicated for a railway(More)
Traffic Light Controller, a typical benchmark device, is specified and verified using of a formal model called Concurrent State Machines (CSM) and the software environment COSMA 2.0, which supports the system level specification and analysis of concurrent, asynchronous and communicating units. The TLC itself is a system of three concurrent components (the(More)
The paper discusses how a bridge between the design practice and the formal methods could be maintained. The use of model checking seems to be the most promising approach. Then, the software environment COSMA is presented, implementated in the Institute of Computer Science,WUT. The conceptual framework of COSMA is based upon Concurrent State Machines (CSM)(More)
Concurrent software for engineering computations consists of multiple cooperating modules. The behavior of individual modules is described by means on state diagrams. In the paper, the constraints on state diagrams are proposed, allowing for the specification of designer’s intentions as to the synchronization of modules. Also, the translation of state(More)
