In the document Safety Analysis with the UML.doc in your Dependability Profile you explain that the metaclass Safety Measure is a "normal UML element that could detect or extenuate (i.e. mitigate) a fault. (Stereotype of Class)."
However, when I look at the corresponding stereotype «SafetyMeasure» in the profile, it is only applicable to Requirement:
In other material you have provided I have seen that you have applied this stereotypes to classes, so this must have been changed at some point.
Now to my question: Why isn't the SafetyMeasure stereotype applicable to class or block?
All right, thanks! I will just redefine that stereotype then so it can be applicable to class instead.
I have plans to restructure the entire profile but haven't gotten around to it yet. I want to build in likelihood computatoin propagation into the profile and I know how to do it, I just haven't done it yet.
Hmmm looks like a mistake. I agree with you; the point of the <<safetyMeasure>> stereotype is primarily to refer to design elements that provide the safety design aspects.
