Abstract: This report presents a knowledge-based verification approach to verify the object models. It is quite different to the recent verification approaches. It allows us to reuse previous verification experience to performing future verification work. It also allows the object model to be specified using simple language. The simple specification language resolves the problem of low readability in specification language found in other verification approaches like algebraic verification approach. With the above features, analyst can have their focus on the model specification rather than the specification language and verification method used in the approach. Verification now becomes an automated black box process in the knowledge-based approach. With the new approach, verification effort and the resource required can be much reduced and it facilitates those under limited verification resource to have a nearly complete verification process. The original verification process also can be speed up through the knowledge-based approach. A knowledge-based object model verification system (KBOVS) was built to show how past verification experience could be used for future verification. Resource library cases were used to see how the system put to work. Evaluation on the execution time to see the effect when either many rules were defined or many specifications were inputted. We also show how KBOVS benefits the analysts by comparing it against other common verification approaches.
