Assurance-driven development in Problem Oriented Engineering

Hall, Jon G. and Rapanotti, Lucia (2007). Assurance-driven development in Problem Oriented Engineering. Technical Report 2007/15; Department of Computing, The Open University.



Problem Oriented Engineering (POE) is a Gentzen-style 'natural' framework for engineering design. As such, POE supports rather than guides its user as to the particular sequence of design steps that will be used; the sequencing is user determined as that most appropriate to the context of application. In this paper, however, we suggest a se-quencing of steps and interactions with stake-holders that is suitable for assurance-driven development, i.e., for developments in which the argument of fitness-for-purpose is produced during design.
