This book contains the Proceedings of the 6th Safety-critical Systems Sympo- sium, the theme of which is Industrial Perspectives. In accordance with the theme, all of the chapters have been contributed by authors having an industrial af- filiation. The first two chapters reflect half-day tutorials - Managing a Safety-critical System Development Project and Principles of Safety Management - held on the first day of the event, and the following 15 are contributed by the presenters of papers on the next two days. Following the tutorials, the chapters fa~l into five sub-themes - the session titles at the Symposium. In the first of these, on 'Software Development Tech- nology', Trevor Cockram and others report on the industrial application of a requirements traceability model, Paul Bennett on configuration management in safety-critical systems, and Brian Wichmann on Ada. The next 5 chapters are on 'Safety Management'. In the safety domain, the fundamental business of management is increasingly being addressed with respect not merely to getting things done, but also to controlling the processes by which they are done, the risks involved, and the need not only to achieve safety but to demonstrate that it has been achieved. In this context, Gustaf Myhrman reveals recent developments for safer systems in the Swedish De- fence, and Shoky Visram reports on the management of safety within a large and complex Air Traffic Control project.
