Case Analysis Module: Therac-25
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This module, designed for the EAC Toolkit (NSF SES 0551779) will test the Toolkit and Connexion's ability to network different online and offline sources for ethics across the curriculum. It consists of four components designed to provide students with tools for carrying out an in-depth analysis of the cases found at www.computingcases.org; it also makes substantial references to the draft manuscript of a textbook in computer ethics entitled Good Computing: A Virtue Approach to Computer Ethics. (The book will consist of the cases displayed at Computing Cases--Therac-25, Hughes Aircraft, and Machado--plus seven additional cases all developed through NSF projects DUE-9972280 and DUE 9980768.)The module presents the case abstract and timeline. It then refers students to Computing Cases where they will find the case narrative, history, and supporting documents that provide background necessary for analysis. The case abstract and timeline introduce students to the basic outlines of the case. The accompanying decision point taken from the case provides students with the necessary focus to carry out an in-depth analysis. Students respond to the decision point by working through four stages: problem specification, solution generation, solution testing, and solution implementation.
