This pattern is an extension of the Software Contribution Safety Argument Pattern. It provides the option of grouping the argument to reflect natural requirements groupings in the software design. For example, for an instantiation of the Software Contribution Safety Argument Pattern at the software architecture level, it may be desirable to create groupings in the argument which reflect each of the individual architectural design elements.

Grouping aspects of the Software Contribution Safety Argument Pattern can help to manage the safety argument where there exist a large number of claims at a particular tier of decomposition by splitting the argument into manageable chunks.
