BIP-SMC : A Statistical Model Checking Engine for the BIP framework

BIP-SMC is a Statistical Model Checker, a tool for formal modeling and statistical analysis of systems exhibiting stochastic behaviors.

Models subject to SMC analysis are described in the stochastic BIP language, a component-based formal language. They can have as underlying semantics DTMCs, CTMCs, and GSMPs. Properties to be verified can be specified in Probabilistic Bounded LTL and MTL. In addition to classical SMC algorithms (Hypothesis Testing and Probability Estimation), SBIP provides a parametric exploration (PX) in addition to a recent support for rare events analysis (IP).

SBIP is released under CeCILL-B FREE SOFTWARE LICENSE and its source code is available on GitLab.


The tool provides support for DTMCs, CTMCs, GSMPs as input models and for parametric bouded LTL and MTL as properties specifications, in addition to a new support for rare events analysis. See technical report for more information.

The user manual of the tool can be downloaded here and contains installation details and a user guide.

The semantics of the implemented Stochastic Real-Time BIP engine are detailed here.
