These are the release notes of FSAP/NuSMV-SA 1.1.1.
Old Release Notes
This release of the FSAP platform has several improvements. Hereafter there is the list of these improvements:
Generation of NR_SIMULT is now optional. Running analysis tasks without NR_SIMULT should decrease their runtime. To make these changes use the ESM Preferences Window invoked from the SAT 'Actions' menu. This selection is saved in the SAT xml. The default is 'disable', i.e. NR_SIMULT is not added to the ESM.
Computation of Counter Examples is now optional for Fault Tree Analysis and Fault Isolation analysis tasks. When only a fault tree is wanted, running analysis tasks without computing counter examples should improve their runtime . This option can be chosen from the FTA or Fault Isolation analysis task window respectively. This selection is saved in the SAT xml. The default is 'enable', i.e. the counter example is generated.
CCA: Importing Failure Set mapping files. Failure Sets can be imported from a mapping file in XML. This is invoked from the SAT 'File' menu which opens a file chooser to select the desired file. The Failure Sets are imported into the SAT and can be saved in the SAT xml like other Failure Sets.
No bug fixes.
The main features of the FSAP/NuSMV-SA platform are:
Support for SAT XML format
Full support to GFML (Generic Failure Mode Library): failure modes can be defined in the GFML, used from FSAP, and automatically injected into the model.
Full support to GSRL (Generic Safety Requirements Library): safety patterns can be defined in the GSRL, used from FSAP, and loaded at the user request.
Analysis task manager
Automatic model extension.
Possibility of defining custom failures directly into the system model.
Possibility of defining or importing custom failure sets, comprising several failure modes, and including them directly into the system model.
Possibility of defining messages for fault isolation analysis.
Possibility of grouping messages into message classes for fault isolation analysis.
Highlighting of changes: parts of the SAT that are changed appear in red.
Quick search of Safety Requirements and Failure Modes.
Integration with NuSMV-SA.
Result Displayer, for accessing in an integrated way all the results of the analyses.
Fault Tree Displayer, that reads files in Fault Tree Plus tabular format.
Viewer of traces in tabular and graphical form (through GnuPlot).
Monotonic and non-monotonic fault tree construction
Generation of traces for each minimal cut set of a fault tree
Possibility of choosing different model checker engine: either BDD or SAT-based model checker
Ordering analysis on minimal cut sets
Construction of fault trees, generation of traces, ordering analysis, simulation, and verification of properties are integrated with FSAP
All NuSMV2 commands available from textual interface
Win32: MS Windows XP
Lin: Linux RedHat 9.0.
In order to correctly run FSAP/NuSMV-SA, the following tools are needed. m4 and Expat are included in the distribution (in the case of Windows, for Linux they should be installed already - m4 at least) but Gnuplot must be downloaded separately:
Gnuplot (for graphing counter examples).
Windows Platforms. Installation procedure on Windows platform uses the standard approach.
Download the relevant FSAP-Setup.exe file from the Download page.
Double click on FSAP-Setup.exe and follow the instructions.
Unix Platforms. The only *nix platform for which we provide pre-compiled binaries is Red Hat Linux. Compiled versions for other *nix like systems are available on demand.
Download and install Expat if necessary.
Download the relevant .zip file from the Download page.
Unzip the package in a directory of your choice.
