We present a discussion of the issues involved with
eliciting and managing safety requirements in complex systems.
We show how safety case architectures present a modular view of
a safety case which is consistent with the modular structure of a
system of systems. These architectures can also be used to
allocate responsibility for safety analysis across contractual
boundaries. This paper discusses how these architectures can be
used to address the technical and engineering management
challenges associated with safety analysis in complex systems.
