We will show how the method addresses issues that are present in present day development processes and demonstrate its applicability on a case study taken from the avionics domain. Of particular importance is that we do not want to replace the processes themselves, but rather propose an approach that extends and supports current practices and integrates well with the standard development and safety assessment processes. }}@COMMENT{Bibtex file generated on }
