A review of the principles of the safety of softwarebasedequipment, this book begins by presenting the definition principlesof safety objectives. It then moves on to show how it is possibleto define a safety architecture (including redundancy,diversification, errordetection techniques) on the basis of safetyobjectives and how to identify objectives related to softwareprograms. From software objectives, the authors present thedifferent safety techniques (fault detection, redundancy andquality control). Certifiable system aspects aretaken into account throughout the book. Contents 1. Safety Management.2. From System to Software.3. Certifiable Systems.4. Risk and Safety Levels.5. Principles of Hardware Safety.6. Principles of Software Safety.7. Certification.

Leveraging Networks and Communities of Practice for Continuous Improvement
The continued prevalence of major incidents (most recently the 2010 BP Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill) and preponderance of workplace fatalities and injuries as well as Process Safety Management (PSM) Incidents, globally, begs the question: why do incidents continue to occur in todays technologically advanced era? More importantly, with 80-85 percent of incidents being repeated, the more obvious questions are: Why do organizations fail to learn from prior incidents internal to the business? Why do organizations fail to learn from their peers and other same industry players? Why do organizations fail to learn from the incidents and experiences of other industries?

The traditional project management rules do not apply in the software world. While not all software projects operate in a state of crisis, it is certainly true that most do. Accordingly this book approaches software project management from two directions: (1) how to plan and manage a software project; and (2) how to regain control of a project that has been overwhelmed by events. Essentials of Software Project Management provides real-world strategies to make every software project more organized and less frantic....
Simple project management for software development
This book examines the software development process and how Trac and Subversion help fulfill the requirements of it. It combines theory with practical knowledge and experience that most developers will relate to. This book is aimed at developers of all calibres, but particularly those that lead teams or projects, especially if they have recently moved into the role or are simply looking for a "better way"....
