Abstract:

In this report, the vulnerabilitylethality VL taxonomy originally presented by Deitz and reformulated by Klopcic, Starks, and Walbert is shown to contain a general analytical procedure, herein referred to as the KSW process, which is applicable to a broad class of problems that meet the criteria for its use. When used as a general analytical procedure, the KSW process serves as a guide to the rigorous formulation and solution of amenable problems, avoiding errors associated with interactions between partial solutions and the aggregation of results at intermediate steps.
