Formalizing Operator Task Analysis (FOTA)

FOTA explores ways to formally model and reason about human operators’ task descriptions and the risks entailed in operator errors. The analysis is based on the use of concurrent game structures applied to an engineered concept of protection envelope that prevents key operator errors from developing into hazards.
