Operating Hazard Analysis Using Supplemented Use Case Descriptions

    Abstract

    Operating Hazard Analysis (OHA) has traditionally been used to perform risk analysis for operation and maintenance related human - machine interactions. Clear specifications of system operation work tasks and maintenance work procedures are essential for operating hazard identification. The paper describes a method to enhance OHA by creating supplemented use case descriptions to supply systematic input information for the risk analysis. A supplemented use case amplifies a typical use case description with information that is necessary for comprehensive risk analysis of operational and support procedures. Such a risk analysis method with supplemented use cases as the input information is here called Use Case Safety Analysis (UCSA). The paper also provides a template for supplemented use cases and an example of a use case safety analysis using a database tool.
