The Edinburgh Concurrency Workbench has been the author’s responsibility for the past four years, having been under development for eight years before that. Over its lifetime, we have learnt many lessons and encountered many questions about verification tool development, both from bitter experience and from discussion with other tool developers and users. This note raises some of them for wider discussion.
