Software “Breaks”!

September 22, 2013

A 17 year old sailor on a submarine must be able to
fix a critical piece of electronic equipment within
15 minutes.

Critical submarine hardware has the required subsystems
to facilitate the location of a failed replaceable components.

Most hardware these days has at least one computer within it.
This includes critical submarine systems.

Can the same 17 year old sailor on a submarine find and
correct a critical software failure within 15 minutes?

Does software “break”?  Not really. but software fails when
it illegally or incorrectly writes some data.

Programmers have many ways of preventing illegal writes which
they use in checkout and then remove before delivery.

WHATIFWE used formal illegal write prevention code in delivered
software?
