Safety-Critical Component-Based Systems

The project intends to study practices which enable reuse of existing software components during product development in order to improve the efficiency, while also meeting the requirements on the integrity of the system and functions, as well as the requirements on e.g. documentation and traceability.

Description of the project

Through new standards and stricter legislation, companies developng safety-critical products have to meet stronger requirements regarding functional safety. Still, development and manufacturing of the products must be cost efficient. The project intends to study practices which enable reuse of existing software components during product development in order to improve the efficiency, while also meeting the requirements on the integrity of the system and functions, as well as the requirements on e.g. documentation and traceability.

The goal is to suggest and study methods and practices, instructions, forms of documentation, and technology which supports that the work performed during one development project gives a higher confidence when system parts are reused. By this, the effort to certify a new system with the reused component can presumably be significantly lower. We believe this also means that technologies need to be adapted so that components can be executed side by side in a predictable and trustworthy manner.

An important part of the project is the active contact with Swedish industry in order to understand what are the most important requirements and limitations met in practice.
