On the Safety Analysis of Requirements Specifications

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Rogerio De Lemos, Dr Amer Saeed, Emeritus Professor Tom Anderson



For safety-critical systems, it is most efficient to consider safety concerns as early as possible during system development in order to ensure that safety problems do not propagate through to subsequent phases of development. In this paper, we present an approach for the safety analysis of requirements specifications that complements a framework for the analysis of safety requirements. The aim of the safety analysis is to assess, in parallel with the requirements analysis, if the risk associated with requirements specifications is acceptable.
