The paper discusses a formal approach to prototyping and analysis of modular rule-based systems that are incorporated into embedded systems. To overcome problems appearing during the design of rule-based systems a new approach to the design process, including the new hybrid rule representation method called XTT is presented in the paper. The proposed approach allows to modularize rule-based systems i.e. a complex system can be split into number of modules, represented by a tree-like hierarchy. The approach is supported by computer tools, equipped with verification algorithms that are based on formal methods. It allows for designing reliable rule-based systems that may be incorporated into an RTCP-net model.
