Advanced Software Engineering
Developing and testing model-based software securely and efficiently
Software rules them all! In every industry now, software plays a dominant role in technical and business innovations, in improving functional safety, and also for increasing convenience. Nevertheless, software is not always designed, (re)developed, and/or secured with the necessary professionalism, and there are unnecessary interruptions in the development, maintenance, and operating chains that adversely affect reliable, secure, powerful, and trustworthy systems. Current surveys such as the annual World Quality Report put it bluntly, directly correlated with the now well-known failures of large-scale, important and/or safetycritical infrastructures caused by software. It is thus high time that software development be left to the experts and that space be created for the use of current methods and technologies. The present article sheds light on current and future software engineering approaches that can also and especially be found in the Fraunhofer portfolio.
