  1. 1. IT Dependability Management in Governmental Organisations

    Author : Kim Weyns; Institutionen för datavetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dependability; IT management; Risk management; Information safety; Emergency management; Maturity models; Software reliability modelling; Service level agreements;

    Abstract : As our dependence on IT systems increases, evaluating the dependability of critical IT systems becomes more important. This is especially true for systems that are critical in a crisis situation and whose dependability is an important factor in an organisation's capability to resolve a crisis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Biomimetic Software Engineering Techniques for Dependability

    Author : Robert Feldt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : automated testing; genetic programming; dependability; software engineering; biomimetic algorithms; design exploration; software development workbench; software visualization; software testing; evolutionary computation;

    Abstract : The powerful information processing capabilities of computers have made them an indispensable part of our modern societies. As we become more reliant on computers and want them to handle more critical and difficult tasks it becomes important that we can depend on the software that controls them. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Dependability in Distributed Computerized Manufacturing Systems

    Author : Anders Adlemo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : General Recursive System; availability; dependability; fault tolerance; reliability; manufacturing systems; computer systems;

    Abstract : The concepts of dependability, fault tolerance, reliability and availability concerning computer systems had already emerged by the 1950's. These concepts were initially used in the area of computer hardware, but were then applied to the area of software and later to applications. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dependability of IT Systems in Emergency Situations – Theory and Practice

    Author : Kim Weyns; Institutionen för datavetenskap; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dependability; IT Systems; Emergency Management; Markov Models; Sensitivity Analysis; Swedish Municipalities;

    Abstract : As our dependence on IT systems increases, evaluating the dependability of critical IT systems becomes more important. One of the main challenges in software reliability engineering is the sensitivity of software systems to a changing usage. READ MORE

  5. 5. Systems Dependability Engineering for Wind Power Applications : Challenges, Concepts, and System-Level Methodologies

    Author : Idriss El-Thalji; Anders Karlsson; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : System Dependability; Systems Engineering; Terotechnology; Terotechnology; Systemekonomi;

    Abstract : Complexity and uncertainty have impacted wind power systems and their applications.Commercial wind power asset exhibits complex system behaviour due tostochastic loading characteristics of its installation context. However, differentstakeholders’ practices in whole life cycle processes try to treat multi-disciplinarycomplexity issues. READ MORE
