A Discussion on Detailing Processes for Improving the Dependability of Aerospace and Automotive Systems
Complex and/ or highly integrated systems such as satellites, airplanes, air traffic controllers, cars, etc., require Dependability (Reliability, Maintainability, Availability, Safety, Security, etc.) assessments throughout their life cycle, especially in their development, where the time and cost to make changes are smaller. Such systems must achieve high levels of Dependability through a variety of approaches and processes. Among these, the processes of analysis and decision making from the conception phase to the final phase of the detailed project stand out, because in these phases the most important decisions are taken. Thus, the purpose of this article is to present a discussion on detailing processes for improving the Dependability of aerospace and automotive systems.
