PROD is a text-based tool that can be used in UNIX (any system of that kind) and in Windows (3.1, 3.11, '95, NT, '98, 2000, XP). Currently no graphical user-interface exists. PROD supports the following reduced reachability graph generation methods that may also be combined:
PROD supports verification of CTL formulas from the reachability graph, and on-the-fly verification of LTL formulas using e.g. the stubborn set method.
