State space explosion is a major problem in both qualitative and quantitative model checking. This article focuses on using beam search, a heuristic search algorithm, for pruning weighted state spaces while generating. The original beam search is adapted to the state space generation setting and two new variants, motivated by practical case studies, are devised. These beam searches have been implemented in the µCRL toolset and applied on several case studies reported in the article.
