Assessing COTS integration risk using cost estimation inputs

Ye Yang, Barry Boehm, Betsy Clark
2006 Proceeding of the 28th international conference on Software engineering - ICSE '06  
Further, to determine the relative risk impact, we use the productivity range of each cost driver in the risky combination to reflect the cost consequence of risk occurring.  ...  In this paper, we describe an approach to enable the user to obtain a COTS glue code integration risk analysis with no inputs other than the set of glue code cost drivers the user submits to get a glue  ...  There is a need to improve the risk management techniques for CBD to reap the expected benefits and avoid potential pitfalls of using COTS approach to system development.  ...

Voting Framework for Distributed Real-Time Ethernet based Dependable and Safe Systems [article]

Hans Dermot Doran
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Measured values from N-redundant sensors are typically subjected to some voting scheme to determine a value which is used in further processing.  ...  In this paper we present a voting framework which allows the sensors and the voting scheme to be configured at systemconfiguration time. The voting scheme is designed as a Real Time Ethernet profile.  ...  One path is to develop techniques to allow the use of non-certified Commercial Off the Shelf components (COTS.)  ...
