  author={Norman E. Fenton and Bev Littlewood and Martin Neil and Lorenzo Strigini and Deanne Reber Wright},
The formalism of Bayesian Belief Networks (BBNs) is being increasingly applied to probabilistic modelling and decision problems in a widening variety of fields. This method provides the advantages of a formal probabilistic model, presented in an easily assimilated visual form, together with the ready availability of efficient computational methods and tools for exploring model consequences. Here we formulate one BBN model of a part of the safety assessment task for computer and software based… CONTINUE READING
