STPA and CAST can be performed without any special tools. Some have used pencil and paper, or simple spreadsheet programs and word editors. Nevertheless, we are often asked if specialized support tools are available for STPA, CAST, and other STAMP-based methods. This page contains a list of the STAMP-based tools we’re aware of.

If you’re aware of a tool that is not on this list, please let us know so we can update this page!
