Ensuring Dependability in Autos with Industry Standards


Julie Pike :
As accountability becomes increasingly crucial, automotive companies need to assure their vehicles are dependable throughout the developmental and operational phases.

The Object Management Group (OMG®) Systems Assurance Task Force is currently working on a standard for the Dependability Assurance Framework For Safety-Sensitive Consumer Devices (formally known as the Consumer Device Safety Standard or CDSS). The proposed CDSS standard will be a process model of simultaneous development of embedded control software and dependability cases.

The Task Force is currently seeking input from members of the automotive industry with its Request For Proposal (RFP) document ( The RFP outlines general and specific requirements on proposals and gives instructions on how to submit a proposal.

something similar, in English, a few weeks ago when he was loikong at .)The rest is that capital accumulates to those who already have it, innovation declines at the margin, and the process feeds on itself until you end up loikong as if you´ve "let loose unbridled libertarian capitalism."In reality, the fall of the USSR (and its subsequent "oligarchy"/mob rule) is necessary but not sufficient to exacerbate—not cause—the effects of policies that led to their own destruction.(As an aside, it´s not difficult to justify a few of those products--junk bonds solved a true market failure, while CDSes are a fine interbank product to make the system less volatile. A similar argument to the junk bond one can be made about "sub-prime" mortgages--which caused rather none of the crisis, since the excessive building in the US, Eire, Spain, etc. was not of housing that received those mortgages. But that´s a side discussion that uses those economic models and reality and tries to match the two instead of fiating that the model is the territory.)Short version: Krugman is correct; it started ca. 1981 with Reagan/Thatcher sowing the seeds and the collapse of communism merely adding kindling to a bonfire that was barely controlled as it was.
