Use of Systems-Theoretic Process Analysis to Design Safer Opioid Prescribing Processes
Although STPA captured the complex system of controls and feedback inherent in many healthcare processes, and shows strong potential to help redesign them, providers generally found the method to be somewhat overwhelming. Expand
Combining STPA with SysML Modeling
A method that combines STPA and SysML modeling activities in order to allow simulation and formal verification of systems’ models and an automatic door system serves as example to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach. Expand


Safety Sufficiency for NextGen: Assessment of Selected Existing Safety Methods, Tools, Processes, and Regulations
Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) is a complex socio-technical system and, in many ways, it is expected to be more complex than the current system. It is vital to assess the safetyExpand
