With the aid of the Finite State Machine (FSM) and formal verification, a framework of updated Functional Resonance Analysis Method (FRAM) is proposed to refine operation guidelines as such and hence improves manufacturing processes by reducing risks of unqualified products during manufacturing operations. Firstly, the FRAM is used to model a manufacturing(More)
This paper highlights an application of probabilistic model checking to satellite positioning systems for aircraft guidance. After introducing our formal approach based on using the PRISM model checker, we built a model of a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) based positioning system for a specific flight in the probabilistic π-calculus, a(More)
Satellites now form a core component for space based systems such as GPS and GLONASS which provide location and timing information for a variety of uses. Such satellites are designed for operating on orbit to perform tasks and have lifetimes of 10 years or more. Reliability, availability and maintainability (RAM) analysis of systems has been indispensable(More)
In traditional approaches of human reliability assessment (HRA), the definition of the error producing conditions (EPCs) and the supporting guidance are such that some of the conditions (especially organizational or managerial conditions) can hardly be included, and thus the analysis is burdened with incomprehensiveness without reflecting the temporal trend(More)
