Design Failure Avoidance

Identify and prevent failures associated to undesired system behaviour

The risk associated to high-tech product and service innovation can be immense: From demanding customers to quality standards, compliance and safety of mission critical systems: Failure is not an option. But how to effectively minimise risk in developing highly complex products driven by software?

The Design Failure Avoidance solution delivers the capability to specify, design and assess quality and safety objectives at the system architecture level. Undesirable failures of an architecture can be estimated from a fault tree analysis (FTA) and undesirable effects and possible causes induced by architectures (FMEA) can be identified on one and the same platform with requirements and downstream engineering.
