The system theoretic process analysis (STPA) is a much discussed risk and hazard analysis method. As a top-down analysis, STPA emphasizes the system‘s dynamic behavior including automation
interactions and human behavior. Join this workshop to get a hands-on approach how to perform STPA and it’s relationship to the safety of the intended functionality.
• Get a summary of the most important aspects of the STPA: basic concepts, terminology, and process will be explained
• Understand the difference between traditional techniques and STPA, and latter‘s advantages
• Apply an exemplary STPA to a limited case study to demonstrate the process
