Neues Buch: Funktionale Sicherheit nach ISO 26262

Ursprünglich hätte das Buch “Funktionale Sicherheit nach ISO 26262: Ein Praxisleitfaden zur Umsetzung” schon in 2012 erscheinen sollen. Mit einiger Verzögerung ist es nun am 31. Juli 2013 erschienen und ist damit aktuell eines der sehr wenigen verfügbaren deutschsprachigen Büchern das sich dem Thema funktionaler Sicherheit nach ISO 26262 widmet. Kurzbeschreibung (Quelle Amazon): Dieses Buch …

CausCheck : Causality Checking for Complex System Models

I’m currently developing a new method for automated safety analysis of complex systems. This method is called Causality Checking and allows for the automated generation of fault trees out of system or software architectures in SysML or UML. This post gives an overview of how Causality Checking works. CausCheck : Causality Checking for Complex System Models …

QuantUM: Safety Analysis of Complex System and Software Architectures

The last few months I had not much time to blog, but today I want to write about a current research project I’m involved in. The QuantUM Approach When developing a safety-critical system it is essential to obtain an assessment of different design alternatives. In particular, an early safety assessment of the architectural design of …
