We are proud to announce the release of version 2.0 of our safety modeling tool safeTbox™. In this version, the following capabilities have been added: 

Modeling capabilities 

Goal Structuring Notation (GSN)

Create structured and modular safety arguments with the well-known GSN modeling technique. You can use it to create process-related argumentation, such as safety cases, as well as product-specific arguments, such as safety concepts. Moreover, you can easily create references/traces to other model constructs (e.g., UML/SysML blocks, components, ports, fault trees, …). Traceability is supported in an efficient manner by a customizable auto-completion user interface suggesting elements based on the current word written.

We are happy to announce that safeTbox version 1.0 is available from now on for all registered users of this website. With this initial version of our safety modeling tool, you will have the possibility to integrate failure model specifications into existing system design models in the general purpose modeling tool Enterprise Architect by Sparx Systems. These system design models can either be created with the SysML 1.4 profile extension of Enterprise Architect or with our own architecture modeling profile having plenty of usability features supporting the efficient creation of models. Regarding SysML, we primarily support the integration of blocks and component fault tree analysis (CFT). This enables you to define complex failure behavior in a modular and compositional way being formally connected to your system design models. Based on these models, qualitative and quantitative failure analyses can be performed.

safeTbox™Licensing 

From now on, any registered user (note: registration is free) will be able to download a trial license that allows using the Full Edition of a specific version of the tool for a period of one (1) month and the Basic Edition until the next release. Upcoming releases are generally planned for intervals of six to eight months. If an upcoming release is delayed, the existing licenses will be extended accordingly, so that the user can keep working until the next version is available.  

In order to directly start trying out our new model-based safety engineering tool, perform a free registration to obtain access to your personal account in which you will be able to download current and future versions of the tool for free. After registration, you can download the most current install setup of the tool and a fitting trial license being valid for one month. After this period of time has passed you will have to Contact Us to request for an extension of your license. In order to get safeTbox 1.0 running on your machine, Enterprise Architect v12.0+ is required. Don't forget to stop by in the online resources section where the safeTbox user manual as well as an example model can be downloaded to explore the capabilities of safeTbox.
