Agile Development for Safety-Critical Systems
A Dr. Dobb's Webinar Series

Agile methods have become increasingly popular because they empower organizations to more quickly address emerging opportunities, to better ensure accurate fulfillment of functional requirements and to significantly enhance team productivity. Many organizations, however, are hesitant to employ agile methods for their safety-critical systems—since they have serious concerns about compromising those systems and thereby exposing themselves to completely unacceptable consequences. So how can agile methods be adapted to meet the needs of such a challenging domain?

In this webinar series, IBM Chief Evangelist, Bruce Powel Douglass explains how, by applying agile practices across the development lifecycle, organizations can reap the vital benefits of agile development while still maintaining the rigorous standards essential for the successful delivery of safety-critical systems.

Part 1: Analysis Practices

Duration: 60 minutes

Agile methods have a reputation for being fast and adaptive and can enhance both quality and team productivity. For these reasons they are attractive to software teams in many different domains -- including safety-critical systems development.

This episode discusses the implementation of analysis-related agile practices to safety-critical development.

By attending this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to integrate Initial Safety Analysis in to your agile practices
  • The role of continuous Safety Assessment in agile change management
  • The value of Executable Requirements Modeling in developing high quality requirements
  • The keys to achieving traceabliity across the agile safety-critical development lifecycle

Part 2: Design Oriented Practices

Duration: 60 minutes

This episode discusses the implementation of design-oriented agile practices to safety-critical development.

By attending this webinar, you will learn:

  • The special role of High-Fidelity Model-Based Engineering in safety-critical systems design
  • The five key views of architecture that agile developers must keep in sight
  • How to integrate Defensive Design into your agile processes
  • Best practices for Continuous Safety Assessment across agile development lifecycles

Part 3: Quality Assurance Practices

Duration: 60 minutes

This episode discusses the implementation of quality-oriented agile practices to safety-critical development.

By attending this webinar, you will learn:

  • The special role of Test-Driven Development in safety-critical systems QA
  • How Continuous Execution and Continuous Integration help QA teams mitigate risk
  • Best practices for Work Product Review and Task Audits in safety-critical QA
  • Keys to effective Incremental Development in agile teams

Part 4: Evidence-Oriented Practices

Duration: 60 minutes

This episode discusses the implementation of evidence-oriented agile practices to safety-critical development.

By attending this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to plan for the certification of safety-critical systems developed using agile methodology
  • Best practices for appropriate management of traceability records
  • The special role of Requirements-Based Verification in safety-critical deliverables
  • Keys to effective Test Coverage analysis

Part 5: Project Management Practices

Duration: 60 minutes

This episode discusses the implementation of agile project management practices to safety-critical development.

By attending this webinar, you will learn:

  • How agile safety-critical PM differs from traditional safety-critical PM
  • Goal-based project metrics for safety-critical agile PM
  • Agile project planning for safety-critical projects
