Classical combinatorial fault trees can be used to assess combinations of failures but are unable to capture sequences of faults, which are important in complex dynamic systems. A number of proposed techniques extend fault tree analysis for dynamic s... Read More about Reliability analysis of dynamic systems by translating temporal fault trees into Bayesian networks.

A safety analysis approach to clinical workflows : application and evaluation (2014)
Journal Article
Gordon, N., Kabir, S., Sharvia, S., Walker, M., & Al-Qora’n, L. (in press). A safety analysis approach to clinical workflows : application and evaluation. International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications, 4(3), 82-91. doi:10.14569/SpecialIssue.2014.040310

Clinical workflows are safety critical workflows as they have the potential to cause harm or death to patients. Their safety needs to be considered as early as possible in the development process. Effective safety analysis methods are required to ens... Read More about A safety analysis approach to clinical workflows : application and evaluation.

An approach to safety analysis of clinical workflows (2014)
Journal Article
Al-Qora'n, L., Gordon, N., Sharvia, S., Walker, M., & Papadopoulos, Y. (2014). An approach to safety analysis of clinical workflows. Athens Journal of Health, 1(3), 201-216. https://doi.org/10.30958/ajh.1-3-4

A clinical workflow considers the information and processes that are involved in providing a clinical service. They are safety critical since even minor faults have the potential to propagate and consequently cause harm to a patient, or even for a pa...

Enhancing the EAST-ADL error model with HiP-HOPS semantics (2014)
Journal Article
Sharvia, S., Papadopoulos, Y., Chen, D., Walker, M., Yuan, W., & Lönn, H. (2014). Enhancing the EAST-ADL error model with HiP-HOPS semantics. Athens journal of technology & engineering, 1(2), 119-136

EAST-ADL is a domain-specific modelling language for the engineering of automotive embedded systems. The language has abstractions that enable engineers to capture a variety of information about design in the course of the lifecycle — from requiremen...

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.
