Engineering has experienced a technological revolution, but the basic engineering techniques applied in safety and reliability engineering have changed very little over the years. In this groundbreaking book, Nancy Leveson proposes a new approach to safety based on modern systems thinking and systems theory. Revisting and updating ideas pioneered by 1950s aerospace engineers in their system safety concept, Leveson presents a new, extended model of causation.
