Journal Article
Aizpurua, J. I., Papadopoulos, Y., Muxika, E., Chiacchio, F., & Manno, G. (2017). On cost-effective reuse of components in the design of complex reconfigurable systems. Quality and Reliability Engineering International, 33(7), 1387-1406. https://doi.org/10.1002/qre.2112

Design strategies that benefit from the reuse of system components can reduce costs while maintaining or increasing dependability—we use the term dependability to tie together reliability and availability. D3H2 (aDaptive Dependable Design for systems... Read More

An approach to optimization of fault tolerant architectures using HiP-HOPS (2011)
Journal Article
Adachi, M., Papadopoulos, Y., Sharvia, S., Parker, D., & Tohdo, T. (2011). An approach to optimization of fault tolerant architectures using HiP-HOPS. Software: Practice and Experience, 41(11), 1303-1327. https://doi.org/10.1002/spe.1044

New processes for the design of dependable systems must address both cost and dependability concerns. They should also maximize the potential for automation to address the problem of increasing technological complexity and the potentially immense des... Read More

Synthesis and analysis of temporal fault trees with PANDORA: the time of Priority AND gates (2007)
Journal Article
Walker, M., & Papadopoulos, Y. (2008). Synthesis and analysis of temporal fault trees with PANDORA: the time of Priority AND gates. Nonlinear Analysis: Hybrid Systems, 2(2), (368-382). doi:10.1016/j.nahs.2006.05.003. ISSN 1751-570X

Classical Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) can determine the effects of combinations of failure events on a system but cannot capture the significance of the temporal order of events, which may be critical. In this paper, we propose an extension based on fo... Read More
