Should Be Required Reading in CS curriculum
This is an excellent text on the topic of safety critical computer systems. I found the chapters on Hazard Analysis, Risk Analysis, Developing Safety Critical Computer Systems, Foult Tolerance and Safety-Critical Software to be particularly enlightening as well as the chapter on Verification, Validation and Testing. Each chapter comes with a excellent list of refences and problems to work. I believe that a course in safety-critical computer systems and safety-critical software development should be required in every CS curriculum along with courses in real-time software development. I recommend that anyone who is about to enter the world of developing commercial or DoD safety-critical systems with no prior exposure to the material should read this text. If you are interested in learning more about safety-critical systems, this text is worth your time.
