We give a detailed description of SymmSpin, a prototype implementation of a symmetry-reduction package for the Spin model checker. It offers several heuristics for state-space reduction. A series of experiments is described, underlining the effectiveness of the heuristics and demonstrating the ability of the implementation to handle almost all of Spin’s input language Promela.
