Goal Structuring Notation
This area of the SCSC website hosts Goal Structuring Notation (GSN) standardisation information and related guidance.
It can be reached through scsc.uk/gsn or goalstructuringnotation.info.
The GSN information is created and maintained by the GSN Standard Working Group (GSN_SWG), a sub-group of the SCSC's Assurance Case Working Group (ACWG).
The principal objective of this site is to disseminate information and resources related to GSN.
The Goal Structuring Notation (GSN) Standard:
This Standard has two intended functions:
- Firstly, it seeks to provide a comprehensive, authoritative definition of the Goal Structuring Notation (GSN).
- Secondly, it aims to provide clear guidance on current best practice in the use of the notation for those concerned with the development and evaluation of engineering arguments – argument owners, readers, authors and approvers.
