I. Dependability:

  • Functional and structural redundancy.
  • Structural redundancy techniques (hardware, temporal, information and software)
  • Dependability evaluation techniques: combinatorial and Markov models.
  • The FMEA analysis.

II. Software Testing:

  • Goals and limitations of testing
  • Testing techniques based on the program structures or on specifications
  • Regression testing, conformance testing

III. Industrial case study

  • Software vulnerability: pragmatic dependability of software (IR)
  • Application to aeronautics (EIS)

  • Computer architecture
  • Programming skills
  • Graph theory basics


E1: first session exam mark
S: homework (report and talk)
E2: second session exam mark
