Supporting Assurance by Evidence-based Argument Services


Structured arguments based on evidence are used in many domains, including systems engineering, quality assurance and standards conformance. Development, maintenance and assessment of such arguments is addressed by TRUST-IT methodology outlined in this paper. The effective usage of TRUST-IT requires an adequate tool support. We present a platform of software services, called NOR-STA, available in the Internet, supporting key activities related to argument editing, communication and assessment and demonstrate an example of its application based on real case study focusing on analyzing safety of an innovative IT system.
