Labor Day from all of us here at the SEI. I’d like to take advantage of
this special occasion to keep you apprised of some recent technical
reports and notes from the SEI. It’s part of an ongoing effort to keep you informed about our latest work. These reports highlight the latest work of SEI technologists in software architecture, operational resilience, standards-based automated remediation, and acquisition.

plays a critical role in the development of software-reliant systems.
Even with the most diligent efforts of requirements engineers,
designers, and programmers, faults inevitably occur. These faults are
most commonly discovered and removed by testing the system and comparing
what it does to what it is supposed to do. This blog posting summarizes
a method that improves testing outcomes (including efficacy and cost)
in a software-reliant system by using an architectural design approach,
which describes a coherent set of architectural decisions taken by
architects to help meet the behavioral and quality attribute
requirements of systems being developed.
Part 2: SEI R&D Activities Related to Sustaining Software for the DoD
By Douglas C. Schmidt,
Deputy Director, Research, and Chief Technology Officer
Software sustainment is growing in importance as the inventory of DoD systems continues to age and greater emphasis is placed on efficiency and productivity in defense spending. In part 1 of
this series, I summarized key software sustainment challenges facing
the DoD. In this blog posting, I describe some of the R&D
activities conducted by the SEI to address these challenges.
