We describe an approach to support UMLbased development of embedded systems by formal techniques. A subset of UML is extended with timing annotations and given a formal semantics. UML models are translated, via XMI, to the input format of formal tools, to allow timed and non-timedmodel checking and interactive theorem proving. Moreover, the Play-Engine tool is used to execute and analyze requirements by means of live sequence charts.We apply the approach to a part of an industrial case study, the MARS system, and report about the experiences, results and conclusions.
