This book contains the Proceedings of the 6th Safety-critical Systems Sympo­ sium, the theme of which is Industrial Perspectives. In accordance with the theme, all of the chapters have been contributed by authors having an industrial af­ filiation. The first two chapters reflect half-day tutorials - Managing a Safety-critical System Development Project and Principles of Safety Management - held on the first day of the event, and the following 15 are contributed by the presenters of papers on the next two days. Following the tutorials, the chapters fa<_l20_into20_five20_sub-themes20_-20_the20_session20_titles20_at20_the20_symposium.20_in20_the20_first20_of20_these2c_20_on20_27_27_software20_development20_techc2ad_20_nology27_27_2c_20_trevor20_cockram20_and20_others20_report20_on20_the20_industrial20_application20_of20_a20_requirements20_traceability20_model2c_20_paul20_bennett20_on20_configuration20_management20_in20_safety-critical20_systems2c_20_and20_brian20_wichmann20_on20_ada.20_the20_next20_520_chapters20_are20_on20_27_27_safety20_management27_27_.20_in20_the20_safety20_domain2c_20_the20_fundamental20_business20_of20_management20_is20_increasingly20_being20_addressed20_with20_respect20_not20_merely20_to20_getting20_things20_done2c_20_but20_also20_to20_controlling20_the20_processes20_by20_which20_they20_are20_done2c_20_the20_risks20_involved2c_20_and20_the20_need20_not20_only20_to20_achieve20_safety20_but20_to20_demonstrate20_that20_it20_has20_been20_achieved.20_in20_this20_context2c_20_gustaf20_myhrman20_reveals20_recent20_developments20_for20_safer20_systems20_in20_the20_swedish20_dec2ad_20_fence2c_20_and20_shoky20_visram20_reports20_on20_the20_management20_of20_safety20_within20_a20_large20_and20_complex20_air20_traffic20_control20_project. into="" five="" sub-themes="" -="" the="" session="" titles="" at="" symposium.="" in="" first="" of="" _these2c_="" on="" _27_27_software="" development="" _techc2ad_="" _nology27_27_2c_="" trevor="" cockram="" and="" others="" report="" industrial="" application="" a="" requirements="" traceability="" _model2c_="" paul="" bennett="" configuration="" management="" safety-critical="" _systems2c_="" brian="" wichmann="" ada.="" next="" 5="" chapters="" are="" _27_27_safety="" _management27_27_.="" safety="" _domain2c_="" fundamental="" business="" is="" increasingly="" being="" addressed="" with="" respect="" not="" merely="" to="" getting="" things="" _done2c_="" but="" also="" controlling="" processes="" by="" which="" they="" risks="" _involved2c_="" need="" only="" achieve="" demonstrate="" that="" it="" has="" been="" achieved.="" this="" _context2c_="" gustaf="" myhrman="" reveals="" recent="" developments="" for="" safer="" systems="" swedish="" _dec2ad_="" _fence2c_="" shoky="" visram="" reports="" within="" large="" complex="" air="" traffic="" control="">
