Aggregated Quality Assurance for Systems

Project description

Making it easier to ensure safety and performance in complex systems

The complexity of engineered systems has reached unprecedented levels. This escalating intricacy poses significant challenges in ensuring factors such as safety, security and performance, particularly for critical domains like transportation, aerospace, and industrial control. In this context, the EU-funded AQUAS project aims to holistically consider safety, security and performance throughout the entire life cycle of products. By integrating these factors, AQUAS will enhance system reliability and minimise potential vulnerabilities. A key aspect of the project is its commitment to flexibility across domains, allowing for solutions in various industries. AQUAS also seeks to reduce costs, increase system quality, and ensure compliance with rigorous standards. This endeavour aims to improve tool features and capabilities.

Objective

There is an ever increasing complexity of the systems we engineer in modern society, which includes facing the
convergence of the embedded world and the open world. This complexity creates increasing difficulty with providing
assurance for factors including safety, security and performance - particularly for safety critical systems such as the
transportation, aerospace and the industrial control domains.
In this project we will focus on the following:

• Safety/Security/Performance to be considered together, during the overall life cycle of our products.

• Flexibility across domains.

• Consolidate the industrial market by reducing costs and increasing system quality and maintaining compliance with more
and more exacting standards.

• Improved tool features and capabilities
