Safety Analysis and Boilerplates

Datum: Dienstag, 27. November 2012
Zeit: 17:00 c.t.
Ort: TU Wien, Bibliothek E185.1, Argentinierstraße 8, 4. Stock (Mitte)


One of the main problems with safety analysis is that it takes a lot of time and is tedious since there is a lot of details to cater to. Thus, computer support is important. The introduction of boilerplates and ontologies with component failure modes is an important step in the right direction. However, we still miss the ability of describing and identifying the effect on the system's environment. Our current research focuses on three issues:

  1. What is the effect of the assistance we already get from tools - DODT and GNLQ?
  2. How can we describe hazards in the system's environment?
  3. How can we reason about the cause - consequence chains of an equipment or control system failure from initiating event to the accident?
The presentation will summarize the current status and our thoughts about the road ahead.
