Reliability, Maintainability & Supportability of Software Intensive Systems

Sun, 01/20/2013 - 09:38 -- wrobinso

Most complex systems these days are characterized, at least in part, by the software that they incorporate. When considering the Reliability, Maintainability and Supportability (RM&S) of such systems, therefore, the RM&S of the software itself should be included.
The intent of this Master’s Project is for the student to apply the systems engineering concepts, principles and practices they have learned to:
1. A “real” software system RM&S problem of interest to them, their sponsor and their assigned academic advisor;
2. An investigative study of some aspect of software system RM&S design; or
3. The development of a software system RM&S design case study.

Key Questions that could be considered for this Paper:
What are Systems Software RM&S? Do these concepts really apply to software?

How can Systems Software RM&S be verified? How much is ‘good enough’?
What are current best practices in managing/improving Systems Software Reliability, Maintainability and Supportability? How can the practices be improved?
What are the cost/schedule considerations for Systems Software RM&S?
What are the customer/user expectations for Systems Software RM&S? How can we understand those expectations?
