Journal Article
Kabir, S., Aslansefat, K., Sorokos, I., Papadopoulos, Y., & Konur, S. (2020). A Hybrid Modular Approach for Dynamic Fault Tree Analysis. IEEE access : practical innovations, open solutions, 8, 97175-97188. https://doi.org/10.1109/ACCESS.2020.2996643

Over the years, several approaches have been developed for the quantitative analysis of dynamic fault trees (DFTs). These approaches have strong theoretical and mathematical foundations; however, they appear to suffer from the state-space explosion a...

Automating allocation of development assurance levels: An extension to HiP-HOPS (2015)
Journal Article
Sorokos, I., Papadopoulos, Y., Azevedo, L., Parker, D., & Walker, M. (2015). Automating allocation of development assurance levels: An extension to HiP-HOPS. IFAC postprint volumes IPPV / International Federation of Automatic Control, 48(7), 9-14. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ifacol.2015.06.466

Controlling the allocation of safety requirements across a system's architecture from the early stages of development is an aspiration embodied in numerous major safety standards. Manual approaches of applying this process in practice are ineffective... Read More about Automating allocation of development assurance levels: An extension to HiP-HOPS.

Exploring the impact of different cost heuristics in the allocation of safety integrity levels (2014)
Journal Article
Azevedo, L. S., Parker, D., Papadopoulos, Y., Walker, M., Sorokos, I., & Araújo, R. E. (2014). Exploring the impact of different cost heuristics in the allocation of safety integrity levels. Lecture notes in computer science, 8822, 70-81 . https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-319-12214-4_6

Contemporary safety standards prescribe processes in which system safety requirements, captured early and expressed in the form of Safety Integrity Levels (SILs), are iteratively allocated to architectural elements. Different SILs reflect different r... Read More about Exploring the impact of different cost heuristics in the allocation of safety integrity levels.
