Abstract

Ensuring the correct functioning of automation systems in safety-critical industries is essential for the safety of people and the environment. Model checking is a formal method for exhaustive system analysis covering all possible system behaviours. It complements and has several advantages over traditional methods such as testing and simulation, which are based on exercising a limited set of test cases, thus leaving a large share of possible error scenarios outside the scope of examination.
