Process Design for Test-centric Embedded Software Development

A specialist lecture on enforcing a test-centric embedded software development process covering MISRA, ISO 26262, unit testing and code coverage.

The session is in two parts. The first dealing with the essentials of an ideal embedded software development process and the second being an analysis of a continuous integration process for a sample software project. Highlighted throughout is the advantages of adopting a test-centric development environment and how this can deliver high quality, reliable code.
A thorough testing process is a crucial part of any development project. The talk discusses what happens when you don't follow a clearly defined test strategy and how you can mitigate this problem with a test-centric development environment. With the escalating complexity of embedded software development, it is vital to test early and repeatedly. To address this, the classical waterfall model must give way to continuous integration, creating even higher need for a more rigorous approach to software testing.

The second part brings together static analysis, functional unit testing and code coverage for a sample embedded software project. Including how to integrate continuous processes into a software project, with a demonstration of some features offered by Jenkins.
