 Abstract: As systems increase in complexity and become combinations of hardware, software and physical components, the methods of integrating these become difficult. In safety critical systems, reliability is a key factor so we want faults to be predictable or mitigated wherever possible. This research aims to discover techniques of applying formal methods for software to a full system incorporating hardware and physical components, expecting to result in improvements in the way interfaces are defined, such that updates and maintenance in the system will not affect its reliability or performance. Another aim alongside this is to review the processes followed in industry throughout the design and development cycle, to find methods of keeping focus on meeting the requirements along all stages of the process.
