Reusing (Safety-oriented) Compliance Artifacts while Recertifying


Publication Type:

Conference/Workshop Paper


9th International Conference on Model-driven Engineering and Software Development


Revisions of safety-related standards lead to the release of new versions. Consequently, products and processes need to be recertified. To support that need, product line-oriented best practices have been adopted to systematize reuse at various levels, including the engineering process itself. As a result, Safety-oriented Process Line Engineering (SoPLE) is introduced to systematize reuse of safety-oriented process-related artifacts. To systematize reuse of artifacts during automated process compliance checking, SoPLE was conceptually combined with a logic-based framework. However, no integrated and tool-supported solution was provided. In this paper, we focus on process recertification (interpreted as the need to show process plan adherence with the new version of the standard) and propose a concrete technical and tool-supported methodological framework for reusing (safety-oriented) compliance artifacts while recertifying. We illustrate the benefits of our methodological framework by considering ISO 14971 versions, and measuring the enabled reuse.
