Quality Assurance Methods for Model-Based Development: A Survey and Assessment 2007-01-0506
This paper examines state-of-the-art quality assurance (QA) techniques for model-based software development in the automotive domain. Both the aims and effort required to apply a certain method are discussed for all relevant QA techniques. Since QA techniques can only be used effectively if they are seamlessly integrated within the overall development process and among each other, an appropriate interconnection and order of application is important. Based on our experience from automotive software development projects, we suggest a QA strategy that includes the selection of QA techniques and the sequence of their application.
