How to formally validate computerized critical systems

  • Have we recognized that for software, the delivery of absolute numerical safety targets is considered to be impossible, and the methods contained in the CENELEC standard produce a probability that certain (unsafe) failure rates will be archived rather than an absolute assurance?
  • The presented method makes it possible, after a rigorous and cost effective design, to validate formally the functional software of critical computerized systems
