Abstract
Formalna weryfikacja modeli biznesowych stała się ostatnio przedmiotem intensywnych badań. Oczekuje się, że zastosowanie metod formalnych może przynieś takie korzyści, jak zwiększenie jakości produktów i usług oraz zmniejszenie liczby błędów operacyjnych. W pracy omówiono zastosowanie metody wykorzystującej wnioskowanie dedukcyjne do weryfikacji elementów behawioralnych w modelach języka ArchiMate. Pierwszy krok zaproponowanej metody polega na translacji modelu ArchiMate do postaci formuł liniowej logiki temporanej (LTL). Następnie weryfikuje się, czy spełniają one założone własności temporalne. W procesie weryfikacji używane jest narzędzie dowodzenia, w którym zastosowano technikę tablic semantycznych. Opisując metodę weryfikacji, wykorzystano przykład procesu biznesowego zaimplementowanego w systemie nadzoru.(abstrakt oryginalny)

The formal verification of business models has recently become an intensively researched area. It is expected that the application of formal tools may bring such benefits to organizations as the improved quality of products and services and a lower ratio of operational errors. In this paper we discuss the application of a deduction-based method for the verification of the behavioral aspects of ArchiMate models. The first step in our method consists in the translation of the ArchiMate model into Linear Temporal Logic (LTL) formulas. The resulting LTL formulas are then verified to check the expected temporal properties. The verification process is based on the semantics tableaux method and is conducted with an LTL prover. The method is discussed using an example of a business process implemented within a surveillance system.(original abstract)
