Integrated Analysis of Complex Safety Critical Systems

  title={Integrated Analysis of Complex Safety Critical Systems},
  author={Stephen P. Wilson and John A. McDermid},
  journal={Comput. J.},
Safety Critical Systems are those systems that can potentially lead to loss of life, injury, and environmental damage. Therefore such systems have to be designed and built to meet a variety of functional and non-functional requirements, including safety, reliability, availability, and maintainability. It is essential to assess, as an independent activity, the extent to which these requirements have been met, and for complex systems there is no single analysis technique which can be employed. It… CONTINUE READING
