1 Introduction Executable object-oriented modeling languages such as xUML , an executable subset of UML, are widely applied in industry to model software system designs. Model checking  can potentially enhance the reliability and robustness of executable object-oriented software system designs. However, model checking software system designs of arbitrary size is intractable due to the wellknown state space explosion problem. Therefore, state space reduction algorithms have to be applied to reduce the model checking complexity
