RF6: Software reliability

To cope with the latest economic situation, organizations must develop new products and systems that have a high level of reliability. RMS (Reliability-Maintenance-Safety) Engineering is an upcoming discipline in product development that helps to get an integral grip on the Reliability of your product during the Design Phase with accurate and quantitative methods. The participants of the Reliability Foundation 6 module on Software Reliability are trained to become Reliability Engineering professionals capable of supporting Software Architects, Developers, and Engineers in creating Reliable Software for complex systems.

The principle of systematic faults will be explained, especially related to consequences of malfunctions using the terms “failure, fault and loss”. The difference between Software Reliability and Calibration Reliability will also be considered. Focusing on early design concepts, methods and procedures to define Software Reliability requirements and realising this required Software Reliability during the Software design are treated. Proper Software engineering, Robust design, Software redundancy, as well as requirements and user manuals in relation to CCM, SQM, and SPICE are part of the course. Advantage and disadvantage of tailoring Risk Analysis methods like FMEA, FTA and ETA, including the human aspects within Software Development will be discussed.

Intended for

Reliability Engineers working in the areas of design, testing, warranty analysis, reliability analysis, project planning, maintenance or inspection. The program is also suitable for teachers at universities and HBO institutes.
