Software bites: Model-based testing and safe scrum in a safety-critical environment

The Dutch railroads are getting even busier. The government and the railroad companies have the ambition to improve the quality of the railroad network. The introduction of a new train security and management system - European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) - must contribute to this. A lengthy and complex project of enormous scope.
Model-driven engineering

ProRail Logistics has decided to use the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) for the development of the safety-critical product ETIS (ERTMS Train Information System). The development of safety-critical systems is regulated in the area of quality and safety. An example in the field of railroads is the Cenelec EN 50126-1 safety standard. From a safety point of view, it is only natural that development is carried out using traditional and proven methods. ProRail chooses a new approach in which the system is developed iteratively and potential problems in the project are brought forward as much as possible. Therefore, the solutions of InTraffic and Axini were chosen; an iterative approach in a security environment, using SafeScrum and Model-Based Testing.

How do you apply these techniques in a critical safety environment? ProRail, Axini and InTraffic explain how to apply these techniques based on the ETIS product. Fill out the form and watch the video. You will also receive an email with a link to the video, so you can replay it anytime.
