Usage-based Statistical Testing for Reliability Assurance

Many of the usage-based statistical testing ideas can also be applied to embedded system, where the surrounding hardware/software super-system constitute the "user" of the software under testing, and the complex interactions between the embedded software and its surroundings need to be adequately modeled and tested. To do this, we are working on expanding our statistical testing strategy to include also the following components:

Safety Analysis and Assurance

Much of this work is conducted in connection to system engineering and software safety, under the support of THECB with collaboration from Lockheed-Martin.
