Reengineered PFA: An Approach for Reinvention of Behaviorally-rich Systems

Reuven Gallant, Leah Goldin

Abstract

In this Position Paper, one considers application of a reengineered PFA as a means of reinvent critical parts of a particular class of behaviorally-rich systems. The implementation of such systems, although not necessarily the outgrowth of PFA, could plausibly have been such an outgrowth because of the nature of their behavior and the way they were modeled. The goal of reengineered PFA application for such a system would be to re-examine and re-design critical behaviors. In particular, if the behaviors of such a system have been modeled by statechart diagrams, these diagrams can be leveraged to catalyze examination of whether the as-built behavior is in fact the desired behavior.
