Dependability of service is at the top of every business agenda to sustain reliable operation. 1 Dependability Principles and Practices The concepts of dependability from an application perspective can be presented as a set of underlying principles that cover a collection of broad-based values, rules and assumptions. These underlying principles lay the foundation for the dependability engineering discipline and practices. 1 presents an example of a set of dependability principles and practices.

A system may be simple, such as a digital timer, or complex, such as a distributed functional safety control system. The majority of systems in use are generally repairable throughout their life cycle for economic reasons and practical applications. Inexpensive simple systems such as COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) products may be non-repairable throwaway items by design to meet market and business requirements. A system can link to other systems to form a network. The boundaries separating a product from a system, and a system from a network, can be distinguished by defining the application of the entity of interest.

The task for dependability assessment of system performance demands technical know-how and timely effort to achieve successful results. The dependability analysis data must be meaningful to support technical recommendations. 1 Definition of a System A system is a bounded physical/virtual entity consisting of interacting elements operating in an environment to achieve a defined objective. 4. 4 Outputs to meet specific objective Illustration of the system concept A system may consist of combined hardware and software with human interactions to realize the delivery of desirable performance in a specific application.
