Abstract

Around a third of significant faults in embedded systems are caused by defective requirements specifications. Industrial case studies using existing techniques to construct analytical requirements models have been frustrated because of imprecise compositional semantics in the industrial specifications. The paper describes a method for synthesising analytical models from imprecise MSC requirements specifications that ensures the models reflect the intended compositions, and not those that result from the imprecision within the requirements.
