Decomposition tool for Event-B

Silva, Renato, Pascal, Carine, Hoang, T.S. and Butler, Michael (2009) Decomposition tool for Event-B , Southampton, UK University of Southampton 4pp.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


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.
