Abstract: This work presents a method for verifying temporal requirements of time-constrained systems. The method predates by establishing a new time constraints (properties) taxonomy. Then, a basis of observation patterns relative to the predefined requirements is developed. Our approach allows the automated verification of temporal requirements, initially expressed in a semi-formal formalism, through model transformation and model-checking. The contributions of the paper are string: the definition of a new time constraints (properties) typology as well as a basis of appropriate State Machines (SM) observation patterns. The second contribution consists in developing an algorithm for transforming UML SM with time annotations into Timed Automata (TA). In practice, in order to verify the temporal aspects of a given specification, the observation patterns relative to the investigated properties are instantiated to make appropriate observers. Then using our transformation algorithm, the system spec ification (denoted in the shape of an UML SM model) with time annotations as well as the obtained observers are translated into TA models. The TA system model is next synchronized with the TA observers. Thereby, the verification process is reduced to a reachability analysis. (More)
