About the course 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.

Subjects of the course RF6 Software Reliability

During the course Software Reliability a selection of the topics that will be discussed:

  • Introduction to software Reliability engineering, glossary;
  • Software Reliability landscape;
  • Software development processes;
  • Verification and validation strategy;
  • Software Reliability requirements;
  • Risk analysis (FMEA – failure mode and effects analysis) for software;
  • Fault tolerance;
  • Robustness;
  • Operational and user profiles;
  • Integration and testing;
  • Root cause analysis, orthogonal defect classification (ODC);
  • Predicting software Reliability;
  • Reliability growth models

Results of the courseRF6 Software Reliability

Upon completion of the Software Reliability course:

  • You will be trained to become a professional Software Reliability Engineering capable of supporting Software Architects, Developers, and Engineers in creating Reliable Software for complex systems;
  • You will be able to provide proactive and solid engineering and management recommendations throughout the entire Software Development and Engineering process.
