The capability to identify potential system hazards and operability problems, and to recommend appropriate mitigation mechanisms is vital to the development of safety critical embedded systems. Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) analysis which is mostly used to achieve these objectives is a complex and largely human-centred process, and increased tool support could reduce costs and improve quality. This work presents a framework and tool prototype that facilitates the early identification of potential system hazards from requirements and the reuse of previous experience for conducting HAZOP. The results from the preliminary evaluation of the tool suggest its potential viability for application in real industrial context.
