In this episode, Michael gave a thorough introduction to STAMP and STPA. STAMP is an accident causality model that was developed by prof. Nancy Leveson at MIT. It is based on systems theory and systems thinking. It is well-suited to addresses the challenges in engineering when working with critical complex systems. STPA is an analysis method based on STAMP to analyze systems to proactively avoid accidents. In comparison, CAST is the a method to analyse accidents that already happened.
