Abstract

Focusing on safety attributes becomes an essential practice towards the safety critical software system (SCSS) development. The system should be error free for a perfect decision-making and subsequent operations. This paper presents an analysis on error propagation in the modules through a novel safety metric known as SMEP, which can be characterized depending on the performance rate of the working module. We propose a framework for the analysis of occurrence of error in various modules and the intensity of it is quantified through probabilistic model and universal generating function technique.
