This paper describes several approaches to the formal verification of discrete event systems modeled with the DEVS formalism. We define the operational semantics of the DEVS formalism in terms of a timed transition system, then we characterize a subclass of DEVS models, through the definition of a formalism inspired by DEVS and timed automata, that allows the use of model-checking tools. Finally, we discuss the application of this tools and present a simple example.
