APT Advocates Risk Summing Requirement for System Safety

At the recent 33rd International System Safety Convention in San Diego, Tom Pfitzer and Melissa Emery presented a proposal to the G-48 committee to add a new task titled “Total System Risk Analysis” into the ANSI System Safety Standard. A similar task is being offered for consideration to add in the next MIL-STD-882 update.
