- How does ISCaDE™ Pro assist with safety case development?
ISCaDE™ Pro is an integrated safety documentation management environment.
It is a safety case editor, safety case model presenter (top-down structured
claim/argumentation/evidence), a hazard log and safety risk classification
matrix viewer. It hence provides a full audit trail and the complete
safety management reports.
- Why does ISCaDE™ Pro use a database to store safety
To achieve full trace ability and an audit trail, using a central multi-user
multi-access database for storage, sharing and retrieval of all project/product
safety case information is a must.
- Why is ISCaDE™ Pro based on DOORS®?
DOORS® is a market leading requirements management tool. From a systems
engineering view, safety case development is primarily about management
of safety requirements throughout the project/product lifecycle. Safety
is an essential feature of any system so its specific requirements should
not be managed in isolation to other system features such as functionality,
security, dependability, supportability and other ...ities!
- How does ISCaDE™ Pro rate against other similar safety
case tools in the market?
ISCaDE™ Pro is unique is providing an integrated environment approach
- What is the benefit of having a Hazard Log and an interactive
Safety Risk Classification Matrix within ISCaDE™ Pro?
In order to demonstrate compliance with generic as well as product-specific
safety requirements, one needs to ensure that all hazards associated
with that product in its operational context are identified, mitigated
and controlled. ISCaDE™ Pro enables trace ability of safety case
arguments to hazard log information and to certification requirements
arising from safety standards and safety compliance. The safety risk
classification matrix provides a graphical snap-shot of progress with
- Why use Safety Case Models (Notations)?
For a complex project or product, a structured approach to your Case
for Safety is essential. A picture (graphical notation) speaks more
than a thousand words. ISCaDE™ Pro provides automatic production
of diagrams from structured data stored in a Safety Case module (file).
- What are the other potential applications of ISCaDE™
ISCaDE™ Pro features, such as GSN, may also be used for system
security and dependability argumentation. The safety risk classification
matrix may be customized to represent a snap-shot of security risks
or indeed general project risks at any phases of project from early
conception and feasibility study through to decommissioning and disposal.
- Which industries is ISCaDE™ Pro applicable to?
ISCaDE™ Pro has customers in many safety-critical industry sectors
such as Transportation, Defence and Avionics. It can assist with managing
safety of any product ranging from medical electronic equipment and
X-Ray machines to missiles and rockets.
