Abstract:

Although model checking is usually described as an automatic technique, the verification process with the use of model checker is far from being fully automatic. With the aim of automating the verification process, we elaborate on a concept of a verification manager. The manager automates some step of the verification process and enables efficient parallel combination of different verification techniques. We describe a realization of this concept for explicit model checking and discuss practical experience. Particularly, we discuss the problem of selection of input problems for evaluation of this kind of tool.
