Managing inconsistent specifications: reasoning, analysis, and action
Anthony Hunter, Bashar Nuseibeh
Pages: 335-367
DOI: 10.1145/292182.292187
In previous work, we advocated continued development of specifications in the presence of inconsistency. To support this, we used classical logic to represent partial specifications and to identify inconsistencies between them. We now present an...
