Software validation with CASE-TOOLS

  • Johannes Rainer
Conference paper


For the software validation with CASE-tools this paper gives an overview about the requirements for the software and the different validation methods for safety critical software. The requirements and validation methods are discussed on a case study with CASE-tools. Also a critical assessment on the use of CASE-tools is given.
