  • discuss when the dependability topics should be considered within a lifecycle
  • explain the principles of requirements, architecture, integration, verification and validation and trade-offs in the context of the specialist domains
  • discuss the principles and practices which underpin lifecycle tailoring for specialist domains
  • choose lifecycle process tailoring appropriate to specialist domains
  • evaluate trade-offs across the lines of development with awareness of dependability topics
  • defend the selection of suitable verification and validation methods used throughout a lifecycle
  • develop a test and evaluation plan for the dependability topic requirements
This module provides further depth on lifecycle processes from the Life Cycle Processes Introductory module (LPI) and expands to look at dependability and resilience, and the challenges of specialist domains from a lifecycle processes perspective including:
  • consideration of lifecycle processes for specialist domains
