Analyzing critical process models through behavior model synthesis
Process models capture tasks performed by agents together with their control flow. Building and analyzing such models is important but difficult in certain areas such as safety-critical healthcare processes. Tool-supported techniques are needed to find and correct flaws in such processes. On another hand, event-based formalisms such as Labeled Transition Systems (LTS) prove effective for analyzing agent behaviors. The paper describes a blend of state-based and event-based techniques for analyzing task models involving decisions. The input models are specified as guarded high-level message sequence charts, a language allowing us to integrate material provided by stakeholders such as multi-agent scenarios, decision trees, and flowchart fragments. The input models are compiled into guarded LTS, where transition guards on fluents support the integration of state-based and event-based analysis. The techniques supported by our tool include model checking against process-specific properties,...
