Conference paper


The use of computer based systems has many advantages, including increased functionality, increased flexibility and, hopefully, ease of use. Because of these advantages their use is increasing dramatically, including applications where failure could have an adverse impact on safety. It is important to remember that most such systems have contact with human users and are used in organisations where there are set procedures and ways of working.
