Seminar: Capability Agility – reducing upgrade costs


Capability Agility – reducing upgrade costs

A workshop organised in collaboration with MOD and Dstl

Thursday 26 April, 2012 - Hilton London Euston Hotel, London

Slides from each presentation at this meeting are now available as listed below:

Nick Hales (DE&S) - Introduction to Capability Agility

Alec Banks (Dstl) - Capability Agility: the Science Perspective

Charlie Hewitt (BAE Systems) - Computer Emulation and Increasing System Functionality

Charlie Hewitt (BAE Systems) - Incremental and Modular Certification

Mark Walker (Mathworks) - Detecting Design Errors in Models before Simulation

Stuart Palin (BAE Systems) - Model Based Development Framework

If you wish to discuss any issues raised by these presentations a forum is available here to continue the discussion.

This workshop will focus on Model-Based Development (MBD) aspects of the Capability Agility Programme and their relevance and contribution to system safety. These include reducing the burden of re-certification following a change to a system, and implementation of rapid and affordable changes to complex safety-critical systems.

After scene-setting presentations on capability agility, certification and error detection, the main session will demonstrate an MBD framework for software-intensive safety-critical systems. This framework is independent of specific tools and allows for certification under any standard.

This is is a timely opportunity to understand how government is proposing systems design and maintenance costs can be safely reduced, in both military and civil domains.

The workshop will be operated by CSR, Newcastle, as part of the SCSC programme.
