This paper presents the development of a hierarchical methodology for speeding-up a symbolic trajectory evaluation (STE) based verification flow, using "program slicing" techniques. An overview of the proposed methodology is described, along with the details of a prototype tool that has been developed to automate the approach. The tool, called FACTOR, has been successfully applied to reduce the size of the RTL implementation of a floating-point unit in an Intelreg Pentiumreg 4 processor model needed for formally verifying an embedded module. The existing proof specification for the module was validated using Forte, Intel's STE tool, on both the original and the reduced model. A comparison of the results demonstrates the effectiveness of the methodology, and its immense potential to scale up the verification flow to larger design sizes
