Trends in Agile Development of Safety-Critical Software: A Summary of the 3d International Workshop on Agile Development of Safety-Critical Software (ASCS 2017)
Agile development of safety-critical software has evolved from an early conceptual idea to, presently, an approach that is gaining uptake in the industry. As we now get more and more experience we also discover new challenges and related ideas that needs further investigation. The third internationa...

Agile Safety Analysis
In this paper, we describe a method for performing safety analysis based on user stories in an agile setting. The chosen analysis method is a generic hazards list, combined with FMEA -- both because it is simple and intuitive to use and because it is efficient. In order to handle failure propagation...
Early safety analysis
In this paper, we discuss how to use available information to get an early start on safety analysis in an agile setting, based on the early, high level requirements and early system sketches. We suggest that this can be done by using existing generic failure modes for FMEA, domain specific fault tre...
