Included are course materials, daily lunch, and drinks.

Syllabus of the course material, templates, additional literature on software Reliability engineering.

RF6 Software Reliability.

In this 3-day 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.
