Software system safety
Layton, Donald M.
MetadataShow full item record
An examination of software system safety analysis has been made and generalized techniques examined. These techniques parallel the techniques used for hardware analysis and are, in fact, predicated on the fact that the only safety perturbation in software is one that directs or misdirects a hardware component. Discussion is presented for a top to bottom and a bottom up hierarchial analysis, as well as an integrated technique.
