Safety-Critical Systems and the TSP
reportposted on 2005-11-01, 00:00 authored by Watts S. Humphrey
Because the Team Software Process (TSP) has proven effective for developing high-quality software applications, a brief review of the safety-critical systems field has been conducted to determine whether the TSP could be usefully extended into this area. This technical note provides a brief overview of recent work in software safety, discusses the problems and implications of using the TSP for developing safety-critical systems, and presents some conclusions. This information is relevant to software developers and acquirers of safety-critical software-intensive systems.
