Means-ends and whole-part traceability analysis of safety requirements

Jang-Soo Lee, Vikash Katta, Eun-Kyoung Jee, Christian Raspotnig
2010 Journal of Systems and Software  
In this paper, we propose an optimized traceability analysis method which is based on the means-ends and whole-part concept of the approach for cognitive systems engineering to trace these safety requirements  ...  The causal relationships in the proposed method make it possible to trace the safety requirements through the safety analysis results and system artifacts.  ...  Most of the safety-critical systems in nuclear power plants and airplanes for example, have this type of control architecture.  ...
