NOR-STA User Group

NOR-STA User Group is free and open for all NOR-STA users. You can join the group, attend the meetings and get access to the group resources.

The main goal of the User Group is to share experiences and best practices of using assurance cases and the NOR-STA platform.

We meet online on the second Thursday of each month. We have a specific topic for our discussion for each meeting. You can actively participate, share your opinions and hear about experiences of other members. You can also present your ideas, your approach for assurance cases and propose topics for discussion.

The next meeting: Thursday 13.10.2022 at 15:00 CET / 14:00 GMT / 9:00 EST

The topic of the meeting is  Information flow in assurance case automation.

Assurance case are referring to system elements and properties which are usually designed, analysed and tested with other software tools throughout the system lifecycle. The required information could flow automatically from other tools to the assurance case. In an ideal scenario the argument could be fully created and maintained in an automatic way. This could save effort and improve the argument quality.

During the meeting we will discuss.

  • The scope of information flow from the data source through assurance cases to users
  • Coordination of automatic and manual information flow
  • Continuous assurance requirements for the information flow
