Développement formel de systèmes automatisés

Abstract : This thesis deals with the development of automated systems while following the formal methods B and TLA+. We propose a formal methodology based on the refinement paradigm to specify and verify the system that we model by two components: the controlled system representing the physical device and its environment, and the controller that controls the system. A synchronised product on the actions of these two components is applied to specify the automated system. As a first contribution, we propose an approach combining the event B method and the language TLA+ in order to verify liveness properties defined in user requirements. Inspired by the temporal logic of actions TLA, we first extend the event B notation to specify liveness properties and we give semantics of this extended syntax over traces. Second, we give transformation rules from a temporal B model into a TLA+ module. We present, in particular, our prototype system called B2TLA+, that we have developed to support this transformation. To consider infinite systems, we use predicate diagrams as abstractions of systems modelled with TLA+. To consider the real-time concept in automated systems, we propose as a second contribution a technique explicitly representing time in B event systems. This technique is based on an interleaving between any event handling time and the other system events. By considering the well known co-design technique, we propose as a third contribution a refinement-based composition technique keeping a separation between controller and controlled systems in order to build correct automated systems satisfying user requirements. We prove a compositionality theorem with respect to refinement to get an efficient approach to verify the refinement of a synchronized composition between components. We verify the refinement of a synchronized composition by verifying separately the refinement of each component. Finally, we define, prove and use in a case study as a fourth contribution the concept of a refinement pattern for continuous processes in manufacturing systems. Such proven pattern allows us to use the discrete abstraction of the effect of continuous processes operating for a while
