Review of the safety engineering techniques for a complex ship system
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Conference contribution › Scientific › peer-review
This paper reviews and identifies a suitable modelling approach and a risk analysis method for a complex ship system. A modern modeling approach known as Systems-Modeling Language (SysML) and a modern risk analysis method known as Systems-Theoretical Process Analysis (STPA) are reviewed and compared with widely used traditional methods known as the Tree structure method and Fault Tree Analysis. SysML is a graphical modeling language that presents structural composition, component functions, behavior, constraints and requirements of a complex system. STPA is a risk analysis method that aims to identify and mitigate risks in a complex system. The review and comparison results are presented in the paper.
The results of this study suggest that the modern methods are more suitable than the traditional methods when the functionality of each method are considered. However, as the modern methods are more detailed, and are focused on the functionality, they are relatively complex and require more resources for the analysis in comparison to the traditional methods. Some viable solutions to improve the drawbacks of SysML and STPA, and possible future research topics are presented.
