We are delighted to invite you to the 9th European STAMP Workshop and Conference (ESWC). The event will take place from 18th October to 20th October 2021 at the University of Warwick, UK. You can attend the event in person (advised for UK-based partners only, due to current uncertainty around international travel) or join us for an interactive broadcast.
What is it about?
STAMP was invented by Professor Nancy Leveson (MIT) and it stands for Systems-Theoretic Accident Model and Processes. It is a new accident causality model based on systems theory. It expands traditional models that focus on individual component failures or chains of directly-related failure events to include more complex processes and unsafe interactions among system components. STAMP primarily covers two methods: System Theoretic Process Analysis (STPA) which focuses on hazard analysis and Causal Analysis based on STAMP (CAST) which focuses on accident analysis.
How can a business benefit from it?
In STAMP, safety is treated as a dynamic control problem rather than a failure prevention problem. It includes software, humans, organizations, safety culture, etc. as causal factors in accidents and other types of losses without having to treat them differently or separately.
Applying the STAMP provides business owners with a clear insight for their business development strategy, business risk management and potential interactions with external business.
Who should attend?
This method can be applied across broad range of sectors, including automotive, aerospace, maritime, healthcare, nuclear, manufacturing and others.
If you are involved in system engineering or management, or you would like to learn more about on-edge technology available for your organisation to make it more effective and efficient, you should attend this conference.
We are also looking forward to seeing colleagues involved in research of topics relevant to system analysis.
