Safety and Mission Critical System Challenge

The traditional development lifecycle using existing methods of system engineering are not working for the latest generation of systems being developed.  Requirements and architecture design introduce 70% of system issues, while 80% are discovered post unit test, when they are exponentially more expensive to fix.

Much of the growth in total system cost is interaction complexity and mismatched assumptions in embedded software, making systems increasingly unaffordable.
