Lindholm, Christin LU ; Holmén Notander, Jesper LU and Höst, Martin LU (2011) EUROMICRO Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications In Proceedings of the 37th EUROMICRO Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications p.362-365
Abstract
The purpose of risk management in the development of safety-critical software is to eliminate or reduce harmful behaviour. In health-care it is essential to manage risk related to software due to its increased use in medical devices and other computer systems. This paper presents some of the experiences gained from an ongoing case study at a large hospital in Sweden. The study focuses on identification and analysis of risks using scenarios and how effective this approach is. The research is conducted as action research, with the aim of analysing and giving input to the organisation’s new software risk management process.
