Automated reliability testing of a medical device
Most of us have experienced unreliable software. Your smartphone crashes or your car navigation does not respond. Annoying situations, but try to imagine that you hit the brake pedal of your car and nothing happens. In these examples the functionality typically works fine, but just not always. This is what software reliability is all about. In this talk Bryan Bakker will describe a case study of a medical X-Ray device that had several reliability issues. Dedicated test cases have been developed to measure the reliability of the product and to provide the developers with the information needed improve the software. Hardware interfaces of the system were used to control the software of the device. The management was able to use the insight in software reliability to steer the project in the right direction.
