Quality assurance – Certification of safety-critical (software) systems
The aim of this course is to give students insight about certification and about what it means to certify/self-assess safety- critical systems with focus on software system and to create a safety case, including a multi-concern perspective when needed and reuse opportunities, when appropriate.
About the course
Module-1 - Introduction to safety certification
This module is expected to: 1) give an introduction to certification of safety-critical systems; 2) transfer knowledge and skills on process vs product/ component vs system/ single system vs family of systems certification/qualification. It will also explain the relation between the following concepts: safety-critical systems, safety culture, development processes according to supplier and manufacturer perspective, certification,” the safety case”. Challenges concerning reuse of certification artifacts and its systematization will be highlighted via reuse scenarios.
Module-2: Standards, certification, and compliance.
Module-3: Modelling methods.
- explain fundamental concepts related to safety certification
- create process-related compliance management artifacts
- apply modelling methods stemming from state-of-the-art safety
- standards for developing reusable certification artifacts for safety-critical (software) systems
