    5. Required knowledge

    Before taking this subject, the student shall be able to

    • (K3) apply different diagrams of the UML modeling language to software modeling problems
    • (K2) explain the typical steps of software development
    • (K1) enumerate fundamental technologies of verification and validation
    7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge The aim of the subject is to present modern design and modeling methodologies and techniques for complex information systems. Today's critical, embedded information systems are mostly realized by software, but the design of such software must consider the physical components and environment of the system. The design of such systems is therefore an interdisciplinary task, in which aspects of information technology are not limited to producing software components, but also include supporting the design process as a whole. The subject lays the foundations for the necessary competencies through the introduction of the platform-based system design methodology, the SysML modeling language, a modern design tool, and numerous analysis techniques (simulation, dependability- and performance-analysis, verification, and validation). Skills and knowledge provided by the subject are widely used in e.g., the automotive, railway, and aerospace industries.

    10. Assessment

    To obtain a mid-term grade students have to complete

    • 1 mid-term exam
    • a team assignment based on the material of the subject.
    Mid-term grade is based on the mid-term exam (30%) and the assignment (70%).
    11. Recaps

    Home assignment can be submitted late in one week after the original deadline.

    Mid-term exam can be retaken once.
    12. Consultations Pre-arranged with the instructor.
