Assurance for Software-Reliant Systems

  • Publish Date:
  • Publisher: Software Engineering Institute
  • Type: Brochure
  • Topics: Performance and Dependability, Software Assurance
  • Description: This information sheet describes SEI research into using the assurance case method to document and predict the dependability of a system where it is infeasible or too costly to depend only on testing.


Can you afford to test everything? What will you do if you cannot test your high assurance system's dependability long enough? How can you be sure that your system of systems will perform as required? Are your assurance processes more guesswork than engineering?
