Every year MIT hosts an industry workshop to allow practitioners to share the latest uses of STAMP-based techniques like STPA and CAST and to hear the new approaches to applications, evaluations, and developments to system safety and cyber security. STAMP is a systemic accident model proposed by Leveson in 2004 and is based on two major ideas from underlying systems theory and systems thinking: namely, emergence and hierarchy, and communication and control.
It is widely used in human factors in healthcare, particularly when analysing the safety of a medical devices interaction system and software. It can also be used in intelligent clinical support systems. Auxergo is trying to apply STAMP in practical medical device human factors tests to dig into use-related and risk-related problems, to improve the usability of medical devices with more accurate and insightful analysis of data.
