From Virtual System Integration to Incremental Lifecycle Assurance
Software Engineering Institute
Challenging problems associated with the increasing complexity of software systems are threatening industry's ability to build the next generation of safety-critical embedded systems. Using the current best practice of building and then testing software-reliant mission- and safety-critical systems, 80% of requirements and architecture design flaws are discovered after unit testing. This late discovery of design flaws can result in rework cost that exceeds 50% of the total system cost. Contributors to these problems include the growth of software, system integration, and interaction complexity exacerbated by ambiguous, missing, incomplete, and inconsistent requirements.
