April 13, 2002, full day

Abstract :

The tutorial will cover the methods and principles of software metrology (comprising test, measurement and assessment) for procedural, object-oriented and agent-based dependable software systems. Attendees will exercise proven techniques for goal-directed measurement, scaling and assessment for software certification. Assessment of both the software product as well as the software process will be discussed with respect to its relevance for such acceptance assessments. A standardized process model for measurement, assessment and certification of dependable software will be used to make the attendees familiar with this comprehensive assessment procedure and to learn how to embed it into today's standardized or non-standardized software processes. Basic knowledge in mathematics and some knowledge of software methods and tools is required. Emphasis will be given to selected advanced topics depending on the needs of participants.
