The Assurance Cases Working Group (ACWG) has been established to provide guidance on all aspects of assurance cases including construction, review and maintenance.
- It is intended that this will be broader than safety and will address interaction and conflict between related topics.
- This will address aspects such as proportionality, rationale behind the guidance, focus on risk, confidence and conformance
- An important aspect under consideration is the role of counter argument and evidence and the treatment of potential bias in arguments
One of the working groups initial activities is to take on board the maintenance of the Goal Structuring Notation (GSN) Community standard. Issue 2 of the GSN Community Standard is available as working group publication SCSC-141B.
Users of the standard are invited to continue to provide feedback on the use of the standard, and to suggest areas for further development. Feedback can be provided via the Discussion Forum
