This paper reports our experience on the development of a design-for-safety (DFS) workbench called Risk Assessment and Management Environment (RAME) for microelectronic avionics systems. RAME is built upon an information infrastructure that comprises a test-reporting/failure-tracking system, an off-the-shelf data mining tool, a knowledge base, and a fault model. This infrastructure permits systematic learning from prior projects and enables the automation of failure mode, effect and criticality
