Decomposition Tool for Event-B

Silva, Renato, Pascal, Carine, Hoang, T. Son and Butler, Michael (2010) Decomposition Tool for Event-B At Workshop on Tool Building in Formal Methods - ABZ Conference, Canada.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


Two methods have been identified for Event-B model decomposition: shared variable and shared event. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the two approaches and the respective tool support in the Rodin platform. Besides alleviating the complexity for large systems and respective proofs, decomposition allows team development in parallel over the same model which is very attractive in the industrial environment.
