Formal specifications play an increasingly important role in
system design-flows. Yet, they are not always easy to deal with. In this
paper we present RATSY, a successor of the Requirements Analysis
Tool RAT. RATSY extends RAT in several ways. First, it includes a
new graphical user interface to specify system properties as simple Büchi
word automata. Second, it can help debug incorrect specifications by
means of a game-based approach. Third, it allows correct-by-construction
synthesis of systems from their temporal properties. These new features
and their seamless integration assist in property-based design processes.
