Requirements Engineering's theoretical and practical developments typically look forward to the future (i.e. a system to be built). Under certain conditions, however, they can also be used for the analysis of problems related to actual systems in operation. Building on the Jackson/Zave reference model [2] for requirements and specifications, this paper presents a framework useful for the prevention, analysis and communication of designer and operator errors and, importantly, their subtle interactions, so typical in complex socio-technical systems.
