A Situation Analysis Decision Support System Based on Dynamic Object Oriented Bayesian Networks

Mohsen Naderpour, Jie Lu
2014 Journal of Software  
This paper proposes a situation analysis decision support system (SADSS) for safety of safety-critical systems where the operators are stressed by the task of understanding what is going on in the situation  ...  The proposed SADSS is developed based on a new model-driven engineering approach for hazardous situations modeling based on dynamic object oriented Bayesian networks to reduce the complexity of the decision-making  ...  The SAW-oriented design principles include general guidelines for supporting SAW, coping with automation and complexity, designing of alarm systems, presenting the information uncertainty, and supporting  ...

Safety in Marine Operations

Sirous Yasseri, Hamid Bahai
2018 International Journal of coastal and offshore engineering  
The proposed model enhances MDA and can help in developing procedures and training programs to promote domain awareness. A framework for the safe marine operation is outlined in this paper.  ...  Marine operations must contend with challenging environments and hazards that require greater domain awareness; especially when many operators from different organisations are working in the same area.  ...  MDA consists of what is observable and known (Situation Awareness), as well as what is anticipated or suspected (Hazard Awareness).  ...

Linking social capacities and risk communication in Europe: a gap between theory and practice?

Corina Höppner, Rebecca Whittle, Michael Bründl, Matthias Buchecker
2012 Natural Hazards  
A focus on prevention also underlines the need for capacity at the level of individuals, communities and organisations to proactively prepare them for hazardous events.  ...  On the basis of these findings, we conclude by making some recommendations for the way in which such practices could be improved in order to be more supportive of social capacities across Europe.  ...  Attribution License which permits any use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original author(s) and the source are credited.  ...
