Abstract

The use of stories and narrative is widespread throughout safety engineering,from "war stories" to use cases In this paper we consider the effectivenessof stories in modelling safety-critical systems and challenges. We present adiscussion of how aspects of a story such as characterisation, narrative arc andsetting can affect the extent to which it adequately illuminates a software engineering problem.
