Description

There is a need for more inclusive holistic approaches to identify and analyze safety-related system risks. Systems are complex, diverse, and vastly distributed. Conventional approaches of conducting hazard analyses and risk assessment do have limitations. This book addresses some of these limitations and discusses many inclusive approaches.

Auteur

Texte du rabat
An essential guide to current safety methods for large, complex systems As systems become increasingly complex, diverse, and broadly distributed, it becomes a challenge to understand system, systemic, and synergistic risks. Consequently, there is a need for more inclusive, holistic, and integrated hazard analysis and risk assessment processes. Safety Analyses of Complex Systems serves as a guide to safety analyses of large complex systems-comprised of software, firmware, hardware, the human, and the environment-and shows how these system safety methods and techniques can be applied to identify, eliminate or control system risks. "System thinking" in problem solving is emphasized throughout the book. Conventional approaches to conducting hazard analyses and risk assessment do have limitations. This book addresses some of the limitations and a number of inclusive approaches are discussed, which can be applied against the limitations. It further emphasizes scenario-driven hazard analysis as a means to conduct more holistic analysis. The book is comprised of four parts: * Risk identification-understanding risk, evaluating safety, and scenario-driven hazard analysis * Risk elimination and control, hazard control methods, techniques, and applications * Managing safety-related risks-key concepts and observations associated with safety management * Methods, techniques, and applications to manage safety-related risks Including helpful end-of-chapter questions and topics for further discussion, Safety Analyses of Complex Systems is eminently suited for professionals seeking up-to-date understanding of the subject as well as students entering the field. The book can be used for graduate and undergraduate education, and in specialized courses or instructional development.
