In this paper we introduce a new approach to the assessment of risk and reliability of safety-critical software systems: scenario-based system assessment. This approach uses the notion of input-space scenarios, which are created by a link between system structure and input space structure. Scenario-based system assessment combines two differing already existing approaches to software reliability and risk assessment: input space partitioning and code partitioning and it draws on the strengths of both models while at the same time helping to overcome some of their restrictions.
