Logic Issues of DSM-Based Processes

  • Arie Karniel
  • Yoram Reich


In this section, we present a comparative review of DSM-based process schemes in DSM literature. The survey proposed a classification model that segregated the different DSM-based approaches, and is further used to analyze the verification consequences of the logic implementation practiced in each case. Two aspects of process logic verificationProcess Verification are discussed: (a) Presentation and modeling of process logic, and (b) Verification of process logic.
