Towards Normal Design for Safety-Critical Systems [chapter]

Derek Mannering, Jon G. Hall, Lucia Rapanotti
Fundamental Approaches to Software Engineering  
In this paper we show how POSE supports the development task of a safety-critical system.  ...  A normal 'pattern of development' for software safety under POSE is proposed and validated through its application to an industrial case study.  ...  Thanks also go to our colleagues in the Centre for Research in Computing and the Computing Department at The Open University, especially Michael Jackson.  ...

Towards the Design of Safety-Critical Software

R. Rafeh, A. Rabiee
2013 Journal of Applied Research and Technology  
Safety is the most important factor when developing software for safety-critical systems. Traditional approaches attempted to achieve safety through testing the software.  ...  In this paper, we propose a multi-phase formal approach for safety management in safety-critical software.  ...  When designing such systems, which usually include both software and hardware, the most important factor is safety. In this paper, we focus on the design of safety-critical software.  ...

Towards a "Holistic" Safety Monitoring in Intelligent Vehicle Control

Tim Köhler, Martin Schröer
2013 Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation and Robotics  
Today, the state of the art in vehicle safety follows an explicit design flow.  ...  For instance, an identification of driver-initiated critical situations (e.g. caused by distraction) could be possible if taking multiple sensor modalities into account and having an implicitly defined  ...  These systems use single sensor modalities and are designed aiming for a particular unsafety condition (and triggering a particular safety measure).  ...

When Doing Wrong Feels So Right

Mary R. Price, Teresa C. Williams
2018 Journal of patient safety  
Insensitivity occurs insidiously and sometimes over years because disaster does not happen until other critical factors line up.  ...  As in other industries, health care workers do not make these choices intending to set into motion a cascade toward disaster and harm.  ...  For example, a workplace design with inconveniently placed hand hygiene stations has been shown to decrease hand hygiene compliance. 14 Interpersonal factors in the system are also at play; for example  ...
