The Prism model checker facilitates the formal modelling and analysis of systems that exhibit random or probabilistic behaviour. Prism lacks the provision of methods for specification debugging. To help alleviate this problem, we present a tool Prism2Promela for translating Prism into Promela. Once in this form, the SPIN model checker can be used to identify errors in the Promela specification, which can be traced back to corresponding errors in the original Prism specification.
