The development of the RAISE tools. The use of a formal method is often seen in terms of (a) creating a formal description, or specification, that meets the requirements, and (b) refining that specification into code. More emphasis is commonly placed on (b) than on (a). This paper looks more at (a), particularly at means by which we can be more confident that a specification is correct. It considers the RAISE tools in terms both of their development and also in terms of the support they provide for gaining confidence in specifications, and hence in raising their quality.
