safeTbox is a multi-viewpoint and multi-analysis tool framework aimed at supporting engineers during the development and certification phases of safety-critical systems. It tightly integrates activities and models from safety engineering with those from systems engineering, thus fostering the interaction between safety engineers and system engineers and bridging the gap between these two. Moreover, modularization is a core concept in safeTbox and is applied to (or a characteristic of) many of the implemented methods and techniques. In putting such strong emphasis on modularization, safeTbox facilitates maintainability and reusability, as well as supplier-OEM relationships and integration of third-party components.
safeTbox is being developed as an extension of the commercial modeling tool Enterprise Architect (EA). It comprises a set of profiles for the definition of specialized modeling languages (in support of the typical safety-engineering activities) as well as several add-ins to extend the functionality of EA, primarily for the support of computations, usability, and interoperability.
