Our March meeting is approaching, joint with IET North West Midlands:

"Reliable Software Development".

The traditional environments for safety-related software such as avionics, rail and nuclear becoming increasingly complex and more reliant on embedded software. Industry-specific safety standards have been introduced to ensure that software in these application areas has been developed and tested to achieve a defined level of integrity.

The presenter will be covering the impact of safety standards on software requirements: how they need to be defined; how they need to be managed; and how they need to be mapped to tests to demonstrate that they have been implemented correctly. Techniques such as static analysis and automated dynamic testing will be discussed since it is a verification strategy that will ensure compliance with safety standards.

Mike Bartley has a PhD in Mathematics from Bristol University, an MSc in Software Engineering and an MBA from the Open University, and over 20 years of experience in software testing and hardware verification.
