PCM REL Reliability Prediction for Component-based Software Architectures
The project realizes a scientific approach to predict the reliability of IT systems with component-based software architectures. The approach builds upon a model of the system's architecture, rather than the system itself. Hence, it has a broad applicability throughout the software development process, including early architectural design stages, when the implementations of the involved components are not yet fully available. Software architects may use the approach to compare multiple design alternatives with respect to their expected reliability, or to identify reliability-critical parts in the architecture or steps during service execution.
