This report presents a basic set of guidelines to facilitate the generation of expected properties in the context of Model-Based Verification. Expected properties are natural language statements that express characteristics of the behavior of a system-characteristics that are consistent with user expectations. Through model checking, expected properties of a system, formally expressed as claims, are analyzed against the model. This analysis can detect inconsistencies between models of the system and their expected properties and identify potential system defects.
