Within the context of globalisation, systems must meet constant changes and increased performances
while coping with strong economic, human, and environmental concerns.
New technologies and processes have then been developed in the energy, industry, and transportation sectors,
increasing the complexity and criticality of systems.
Having a better control of technological systems and associated risk requires:
- to comprehend better the use of systems;
- to know objectively their performances;
- to optimise systems for production, safety, and environment;
- to maintain their performances in time.
The speciality that aims at responding to these challenges is the dependability theory
and we make the best use of it for optimising performances of your systems.
Dependability theory is the technical and scientific area that aims at studying the performances of systems.
The performances of a system are studied with regard to its functions,
and consider the failures that it can encounter through its hardware and software elements.
The studied factors are Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, and Safety (RAMS)
and their analyses are based on statistical and probabilistic modelling.
