About the course HI-RF6 Software Reliability.

In this training, the entire Software Development Process (Product Creation Process) is covered.

Focusing on early design concepts, methods and procedures will be taught to define software Reliability requirements and realize and validate this required software Reliability during the software design and development.

Using proper software Reliability engineering, risks will be identified, controlled, and mitigated early in the software development process.
