    Hi Jan,

    Thank you for your commment, and I am sorry I have not realized your comment.
    Your safeTbox seems very useful. Your comment and your tool will help people who are interested in GSN and FTA.

    Hi Takeshi,

    thank you for providing the GSN MDG Technology. In case someone is interested in a more sophisticated GSN realization (including automation support) in EA for safety assurance, you may also find our safety engineering tools for EA "safeTbox" interesting. It is free and offers many features that you can review at

    Best regards
    Jan Reich from Fraunhofer IESE

    Hi Kishore,

    I am sorry that I have not realized your comment.
    Mayne you imported the file as XMI, but this XML file is not XMI but MDG Technology file.

    From 'Specialize' ribbon, press the Publish button in the Technologies panel, then select the 'Import Technology file'. You can see the GSN after importing as MDG Technology.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi, I am looking to use EA v13.5 (Corporate edition with MDG technology for SysML) for developing a safety case using GSN. When I attempted to import the GSN.xml downloaded from this site to a EA project, I get an error in "Unknown XMI exporter or version". Could you please advise how I can import GSN xml?

    Many Thanks,
