Space product assurance

Tailoring  for  software  development  constraints  takes  into  account  the  special  characteristics  of  the  software  being  developed,  and  of  the  development  environment. The type of software development (e.g. database or real‐time) and  the  target  system  (e.g.  embedded  processor,  host  system,  programmable  devices,  or  application‐specific  integrated  circuits)  are also  taken  into  account  (see  Annex  S  of  ECSS‐E‐ST‐40).  Specific  requirements  for  verification,  review  and  inspection  are  imposed,  for  example,  when  full  validation  on  the  target  computer is not feasible or where performance goals are difficult to achieve.

The final, and perhaps most important, reason that SAFECode’s members favor an in-house approach to security engineering training is the ability to tie their training initiatives in a concrete way to corporate goals, processes and risk management approaches, as well as employee performance expectations. In soliciting feedback from employees undergo- ing training, it is evident that the training is most embraced when the employees can directly apply what they learn to their daily work. In this way, training becomes more than an abstract corporate requirement, but rather a tool they can use to continue their professional development and further their careers. While this is very much a positive and a common trait in corporate training programs regardless of subject matter, it can create challenges for the development of an industry standard curriculum due not only to the diversity in corporate cultures, development environments and product requirements, but also the nascent nature of formal software assurance programs. For these reasons, the framework that SAFECode is offering for internal software engineering training programs provides an approach that can be tailored and adapted across diverse corporate environments. Companies can use the framework to focus on the knowledge and skills that are most important to their needs of their programs, and thus meet their corporate objectives. It should be noted that SAFECode believes that industry must advocate for formalized

Maintainability assurance in Software Product Lines An Activity- Based Model

Maintainability assurance in Software Product Lines An Activity- Based Model

Variability in data can be observed as a particular data structure may vary from one product to another. Variability in control flow is defined as variation of interaction pattern from one product to another. Variability in function shows that some functions may exist in some products and not in others. Variability in product quality goals may be understood as the variations of goals like security, performance or modifiability from one product to another. Variability in product environment means that the product domain may impose specific requirements. Variability in technology concerns the platform (OS, hardware, dependency on middleware, user interface, and run-time system for programming language) which may vary in a similar way to function but with the technical point of view [22][23].

Software Management and Quality Assurance

Software Management and Quality Assurance

QUALITY ASSURANCE, this idea basically deals with the Software project management is the art and science of planning and leading software projects. [1] It is a sub- discipline of project management in which software projects are planned, implemented, monitored and controlled and Software Quality Assurance (SQA) involves the entireworking on the software development process - monitoring and improving the process. it make sure that any agreed-upon standards and procedures are followed, and ensuring that problems are found and dealt with. It’s aimed towards prevention and if followed will result in the production of quality software. To manage new development efforts, companies applied the established project management methods, but project schedules slipped during test runs, especially when confusion occurred in the gray zone between the user specifications and the delivered software. To be able to avoid these problems, software project management methods focused on matching user requirements to delivered products, in a method known now as the waterfall model.

Software Inspections and Their Role in Software Quality Assurance

Software Inspections and Their Role in Software Quality Assurance

It’s a special kind of inspection in which a team examines a piece of code and then correct all the defects found in it. In code review, defect is a piece of code which are not properly applied its requirements, it doesn’t function as the programmer proposed, or it is not incorrect but it can be improved. In other hand it is very helpful to the team to fix and find bugs. Code review is very useful for both, its helping junior’s developers in new programming techniques learning and helping coder review for cross training programmers.

Software Assurance Competency Model

Software Assurance Competency Model

This Software Assurance (SwA) Competency Model was developed to create a foundation for assessing and advancing the capability of software assurance professionals. To help organizations and individuals determine SwA competency across a range of knowledge are- as and units, this model provides a span of competency levels 1 through 5, as well as a decomposition into individual competencies based on knowledge and skills. This model also provides a framework for an organization to adapt the model’s features to the organiza- tion’s particular domain, culture, or structure.

Enhancing Software Quality by an SPL Testing based Software Testing

Enhancing Software Quality by an SPL Testing based Software Testing

Verification: It answers the question: Are we doing the job right?. It is the process to make sure the product satisfies the conditions imposed at the start of the development phase. Validation: It answers the question: Are we doing the right job?. It is the process to make sure the product satisfies the specified requirements at the end of the development phase. Software testing should not be confused with debugging. Debugging is the process of analyzing and locating bugs when software does not behave as expected. The term bug is often used to refer to a problem or fault in a computer. There are software bugs and hardware bugs. The term originated in the United States, at the time when pioneering computers were built out of valves, when a series of previously inexplicable faults were eventually traced to moths flying about inside the computer [16-18].

The effect of variability modeling on requirements satisfaction for the configuration and implementation of off-the-shelf software packages

The effect of variability modeling on requirements satisfaction for the configuration and implementation of off-the-shelf software packages

To answer the research question Q1, the results indicated that use of the ETHER method did expose more customer re- quirements on the implementation of the software package compared to CGK’s current demonstration process. Both CGK’s past experiences and the baseline session revealed that few requirements are exposed and documented during demon- stration sessions. In contrast, the 4 ETHER sessions exposed a total of 67 customer requirements. In simple terms, the ses- sions revealed that replacing the software package implemen- tation with decision support about requirements-level capabili- ties increased the exposure of requirements in the dialogue between supplier and customer. Although perhaps not the most surprising result, the result does indicate that the level of abstraction at which information is presented to customers has the potential to influence the discovery of and communication about requirements. However, most of the exposed require- ments were expressed not as direct features or qualities that the implementation should have, but in terms of deficiencies in each customer’s current business process that could be en- hanced by the Totara package. The customer representatives expressed most of these requirements in a relaxed and natural way, perhaps in part because they expected the CGK solution architects to formalize the requirements afterwards on their behalf. Indeed, one interpretation of this behaviour was that the customer representatives were waiting to understand the pack- age capabilities before seeking to formalize requirements fur- ther. For example, the customer who participated in Session 2 requested a follow-up requirements session before finally de- ciding to buy the performance management feature. One broader implication is that the ETHER method needs further guidance to extract requirements from deficiencies in the cus- tomer’s current situation. We explore this implication further in the lessons learned reported at the end of this section.

Software Assurance Using Structured Assurance Case Models

Software Assurance Using Structured Assurance Case Models

Software assurance is an important part of the software development process to reduce risks and ensure that the software is trustworthy. The critical importance of establishing and assuring dependability and trustworthiness (e.g., safety, security, reliability, etc.) of systems and/or software in avionics, industrial control systems and other safety and mission-critical systems has long been recognized. The key purpose of a software assurance assessment is to show that the system, as designed and built, functions as intended (functional and dependable) and is free from defects and vulnerabilities that might be introduced intentionally or unintentionally. Inspection, testing, certification and accreditation, and configuration management have all been traditionally used in the software assurance process with mixed results. In the report, “Software for

Software & Security Assurance Metrics and methods for software certification

Software & Security Assurance Metrics and methods for software certification

Software plays a major rule in today’s human life at work or even at home. Users need the software which are reliable and accurate. However the hidden software’s complexity made it capable to have undetected errors and bugs. And it is hard to evaluate quality of software regarding reliability and accurately. Certify software means that the software fit for users’ purpose. Testing software exhaustively is not possible and there are some examples which errors in software cost money and human lives. For example, a wrong conversion of a 64 bit value made a $370 million cost in the Ariane 5 launcher. On that event the launcher veered off its flight path, broke up and exploded. So even when best practice has been applied, software still have bugs. Also there are many technique are to find errors and bugs but they need time and money. (1) Software certification is important in all level of software from drivers and compiler up to applications and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. For example a compiler should translate the source code into the machine language as it is instructed, but we all know that some bugs in some compilers made a correct program into an incorrect executable software.

Towards a Product Derivation Process Reference Model for Software Product Line Organisations

Towards a Product Derivation Process Reference Model for Software Product Line Organisations

In the Find and Outline Requirements task, the functional and non-functional requirements for the system are specified and scoped by the Product Architect. The Product Architect scopes the Product Requirements. It should be noted however that only requirements not covered by the platform are relevant input here. The decision of whether the required component development or adaptation will result in product-specific code or in adaptation of the entire product line (platform) is determined through a Change Control Board (CCB). The CCB is comprised of key members of the Product Team and the Platform Team. Scoping new development is a difficult task. Practical arguments such as time to market and short term cost frequently cause scoping solutions to be selected that are neither optimal for the product itself nor for the product line as a whole [3]. Market forecasts, resources, implementation costs and intellectual property issues all influence the Product Architect‘s scoping decision. Intellectual property becomes an issue when a customer wants a customer-only-solution and does not want their features to become part of the general platform features. The Product Architect uses impact analysis models, decisions models and effort estimation models to assist in the decision making progress. While platform development must provide a consistently high-quality platform, product development must meet delivery dates and customer requirements. So with every requirement, it must be decided whether to integrate into the platform or into an individual product only [121].

Goals and Scenarios to Software Product Lines: the GS2SPL Approach

Goals and Scenarios to Software Product Lines: the GS2SPL Approach

Abstract. Goal-oriented requirements engineering (GORE) approaches for Software Product Lines (SPLs) offer a natural way to capture not only stakeholders’ goals but also similarities and the variability of an SPL. Goals to Software Product Lines (G2SPL) is an approach that guides the systematic creation of an SPL feature model from i* models with cardinality. However, by using G2SPL it is not possible to specify the behavioral characteristics of an SPL. In order to capture the system’s behavior, it is common to use a scenario specification technique. In this paper, we present GS2SPL (Goals and Scenarios to Software Product Lines), an approach for the Requirements Engineering phase of SPL development that combines G2SPL and PLUSS use case scenarios. Our approach also includes a sub-process for configuring specific applications of an SPL based on the priority given to non-functional requirements.
