报告摘要:Formal methods have been established to overcome the challenges to conventional software engineering by introducing mathematical notation and calculus to support formal specification, refinement, and verification, but they are generally difficult to apply to the development of large-scale and complex systems in practice because of many constraints.

We have developed “Formal Engineering Methods’’ (FEM) as a research area since 1989 to study how formal methods can be effectively integrated into conventional software engineering technologies and process models so that formal techniques can be tailored, revised, or extended to fit the need for improving software productivity and quality in practice. We have also developed a specific FEM called Structured Object-Oriented Formal Language (SOFL) that offers rigorous but practical techniques for system modeling, transformation, and verification, including a three-step formal specification approach, transformation from structured specification to object-oriented implementation, and specification-based inspection and testing. The effective combination of these three techniques can significantly enhance software productivity and quality. I will first give a brief introduction to formal methods and formal engineering methods, and then focus on the issue of how SOFL is used for software quality assurance. Finally, I will explain the future development directions in the field.
