This study proposes two models for reading Gantt charts and finding embedded errors in the operating schedules of batch processes. Two automatic techniques for finding errors, a real-time model and a latch model, are developed using the symbolic model verifier (SMV) and are compared to verify that the schedules are error free and to represent the scheduling information and policies. These models are designed to automatically detect embedded errors relating to unavailability, superimpositions, and violation of intermediate storage policies in batch processes with various intermediate storage policies.
