June 27, 2013: Safety and availability analysis methods under concurrent change

  • Speaker: Mischa Möstl
  • Title: Safety and availability analysis methods under concurrent change
  • Abstract: For a wide range of applications safety standards exist as a descendant of general safety norms such as IEC 61508. In current development flows the methods proposed by these standards are usually applied at the system level in order to assess a system. However, contemporary development processes follow a function based architecture that splits function into components that are mapped to a platform in order to synthesize a system. This implies that the system as a whole needs to be re-assessed even in the case of minor changes to one component or upon adding a function. This talk will introduce key issues of applying methods from safety standards under concurrent change conditions (e.g. FTA, FMEDA) and present possible research objectives for CCC.
