There are many software development processes defined in the literature that address the particular needs for the type of software being developed [Pressman 92]. However, for software in safety-critical systems most of the existing processes do not address safe software development and delivery. We propose a software development process for developing safe software, consisting of four basic activities; forward engineering, safety analysis, reliability analysis, and program management.
