We present a formalism for handling finite-state concurrent systems in a mechanical way. In the formalism we can axiomatically define concurrent systems by means of a branching time language. We show that, starting from the axiomatic description of a concurrent system, we can obtain automatically a finite Kripke model H such that theorem proving is reduced to model checking with respect to H. By means of such a formal procedure, we can model a large class of concurrent systems, including Petri nets, CSP, interaction systems, etc. A procedure has been implemented to produce a Kripke model from an axiomatic description of a concurrent system and to perform model checking on it.
