Hosse, R. S.; Sikatzki, S.:
Cybernetic Modelling of Safety-Relevant Policy Processes.
FORMS/FORMAT 2012 - 9th Symposium on Formal Methods for Automation and Safety in Railway and Automotive Systems, Braunschweig, Deutschland, Dezember 2012.

Kurzfassung:

This paper discusses the importance of policy processes for system’s safety and how cybernetics can help to gain a deeper understanding in micro and macro processes shaping safety-relevant policies. After exemplifying the existing methodological problems of policy analysis, the paper introduces a cybernetic- based methodology for analyzing policy processes within hierarchical safety control structures, focusing on the multiple streams perspective. For doing so, the STAMP/STPA method is adapted to concentrate on policies and a new formal model is introduced to describe and understand policy processes. The introduced methodology will be discussed critically and the benefits and drawbacks will be reflected. 1 Introduction
