Abstract

In this article we investigate the problem of applying agile practices into safetycritical
projects. The goal of our research is to investigate potential benefits
from introducing agile practices into safety-critical environment and to present a
solution providing for balancing agile approach with more disciplined assurance
techniques, bringing the best of the two worlds together. In this article we
present the supporting ideas such as assurance argument patterns along with
a case study. The case study investigates how software engineers perceive risks
associated with the introduction of agile practices and collect their ideas on how
these risks could be mitigated.
