ASCE User Forum No. 20

  • Date: 15th December 2016

We have a balanced and exciting program with talks from safety and assurance practitioners as well as updates on how ASCE can help you deal with real-life projects.

  • There will be a new session on "User Views" where recent ASCE users talk about their experience. Roberto Pimentel, an experienced commercial airline pilot, will talk about his research into applying safety cases to pilot training.
  • Andrew Eaton and Stephen Barker from the CAA will talk about the approach the CAA is taking to assessing safety cases and the guidance they have developed.
  • Cyber security is reshaping how we create and manage safety cases. Robert Stroud from Adelard will provide an update on the security informed standards landscape.
  • We will have the latest developments on ASCE. Kate Netkachova will talk about the latest ASCE Feature Pack 2 and how we listen to users, Luke Emmet will give an update on our courses and training as well as an interactive "Master Class" on using the new ASCE features to support scale and review of cases.
