Tutorial: An Introduction to STPA and CAST, Nancy Leveson, MIT
CAST is a new accident analysis method that helps to better understand why an accident occurred and how to prevent future accidents related to the same systemic factors. In contrast, STPA is a proactive tool that identifies scenarios leading to accidents before they occur. Information obtained to assist in preventing or mitigating losses. While there is not enough time to teach how to perform STPA and CAST in this tutorial, I will provide an introduction to them and enough information that you should be able to get started in applying these new safety engineering tools
