Challenges when using Model-Driven Architecture in the development of Safety Critical Software

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The model driven architecture (MDA) is an approach to software engineering in which models are systematically developed and transformed into code. This paper discusses some of the issues which would need to be overcome when attempting to certify a safety critical design or software developed with the MDA approach, partially based on our experience with an avionics software case study. We particularly focus on the need to certify MDA artefacts and produce a compelling system safety case
