Modern embedded systems are becoming gradually larger and more complexed due to the interaction among connected elements in addition to the advanced functionality of each element. To ensure safety, security and reliability on those complex systems over all life cycle stages, IPA conducts related survey, research and dissemination.
Promotion of Systems Engineering
Examines the Presentation of impact and effective scope of systems engineering while referring to domestic and overseas best practices.
With examination of and reference to Systems-Theoretic Accident Model and Processes (STAMP) and its safety analysis application, System Theoretic Process Analysis (STPA), IPA is conducting research and survey of safety analysis and evaluation process in alignment of Japanese software development standard.
