Goals of this Lecture

Contents of the Lecture

Safety and reliability are important quality characteristics in the technical field of software applications. In many application areas - e.g. railway engineering, avionics, automotive, medical technology - a malfunction of the software can endanger human lives. It is therefore necessary to carry out a safety certification process before commissioning such systems. These certifications must be complete and prove that the residual risk is below an acceptable level.

Relevant techniques for safety and reliability analysis for software and systems are presented. In addition to identifying and evaluating risks, the acceptance of risk is considered.
