This thesis investigates the feasibility of software safety analysis using Petri net modeling and an automated suite of Petri Net UTilities (P-NUT) developed at UC Irvine. We briefly introduce software safety concepts, Petri nets, reachability theory, and the use of P-NUT. We then develop a methodology to combine these ideas for efficient and effective preliminary safety analysis of a real-time, embedded software, military system.
