The amount of software used in safety-critical systems is increasing at a rapid rate. At the same time, software technology is changing, projects are pressed to develop software faster and more cheaply, and the software is being used in more critical ways. Developing Safety-Critical Software: A Practical Guide for Aviation Software and DO-178C Compliance equips you with the information you need to effectively and efficiently develop safety-critical, life-critical, and mission-critical software for aviation. The principles also apply to software for automotive, medical, nuclear, and other safety-critical domains. An international authority on safety-critical software, the author helped write DO-178C and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration’s policy and guidance on safety-critical software. In this book, she draws on more than 20 years of experience as a certification authority, an avionics manufacturer, an aircraft integrator, and a software developer to present best practices, real-world examples, and concrete recommendations. The book includes: An overview of how software fits into the systems and safety processes Detailed examination of DO-178C and how to effectively apply the guidance Insight into the DO-178C-related documents on tool qualification (DO-330), model-based development (DO-331), object-oriented technology (DO-332), and formal methods (DO-333) Practical tips for the successful development of safety-critical software and certification Insightful coverage of some of the more challenging topics in safety-critical software development and verification, including real-time operating systems, partitioning, configuration data, software reuse, previously developed software, reverse engineering, and outsourcing and offshoring An invaluable reference for systems and software managers, developers, and quality assurance personnel, this book provides a wealth of information to help you develop, manage, and approve safety-critical software more confidently.

This volume contains papers presented at the International Conference on Software Process (ICSP 2007) held in Minneapolis, USA, May 19-20, 2007. ICSP 2007 c- prised two successful series of process-related workshops, the International Workshop on Software Process Simulation and Modeling (ProSim) and the Software Process Workshop (SPW). The theme of ICSP 2007 was “Coping with Software Process Dynamics and Ag- ity. ” Software developers work in a dynamic context of frequently changing te- nologies and limited resources. Globally distributed development teams are under ever-increasing pressure to deliver their products more quickly and with higher levels of quality. At the same time, global competition is forcing software development organizations to cut costs by rationalizing processes, outsourcing part or all of their activities, reusing existing software in new or modified applications and evolving existing systems to meet new needs, while still minimizing the risk of projects failing to deliver. To address these difficulties, new or modified processes are emerging, including agile methods and plan-based product line development. Open source, COTS and community-developed software are becoming more popular. Outsourcing coupled with 24/7 development demand well-defined processes to support the - ordination of organizationally and geographically separated teams. The increasing challenges faced by the software industry combine to increase - mands on software processes. ICSP 2007 was a continuation of two successful series of process-related wo- shops, ProSim (Software Process Simulation and Modeling Workshop) and SPW (Software Process Workshop).
