Timing diagrams add Requirements Engineering capability to Event-B Formal Development

Joochim, Tossaporn and Poppleton, Michael (2008) Timing diagrams add Requirements Engineering capability to Event-B Formal Development At 16th IEEE INTERNATIONAL REQUIREMENTS, Spain. 08 - 12 Sep 2008.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


Event-B is a language for the formal development of reactive systems. At present the RODIN toolkit [15] for Event-B is used for modeling requirements, specifying refinements and doing verification. In order to extend graphical requirements modeling capability into the real-time domain, where timing constraints are essential, we propose a Timing diagram (TD) [13] notation for Event-B. The UML 2.0 based notation provides an intuitive graphical specification capability for timing constraints and causal dependencies between system events. A translation scheme to Event-B is proposed and presented. Support for model refinement is provided. A partial case study is used to demonstrate the translation in practice.
