You will be trained to become a Software Reliability Engineering professional capable of supporting Software Architects, Developers, and Engineers in creating Reliable Software for complex systems. By focusing on Software Reliability you will be able to provide pro-active and solid engineering and management recommendations throughout the entire Software Development and Engineering process.

In this training the entire software development process is covered. Focusing on early design concepts, methods and procedures will be taught to define Software Reliability requirements and realize and validate this required Software Reliability during the software design and development. Using proper Software Reliability engineering, risks will be identified, controlled, and mitigated early in the Software development process.

Software Reliability is – as opposed to Hardware Reliability – mainly about systematic faults that have been designed into the system. During this training the following Software Reliability Engineering aspects will be covered: Operational Profiles, dependency on other software Quality characteristics, fault prevention, fault detection, fault tolerance and fault forecasting. Risk Analysis methods like FMEA and FTA including human aspects – will be discussed. The link will be made to Software Reliability testing including Root Cause Analysis and Orthogonal Defect Classification (ODC). Reliability Growth models and judgment on Software Reliability are also part of the Software validation process.

Systems & Software Academy

Holland Innovative


The Reliability Foundation Program is a post-graduate education, focusing on the practical aspects of Reliability Engineering. The program has been developed in accordance with VDI 4002 Reliability guidelines in collaboration with the University of Stuttgart and consists of several modules that will result into a VDI Reliability Engineer certification.

The overall Reliability Foundation Program is established according to VDI 4002 in cooperation with the University of Stuttgart, Prof.Dr.-Ing. B. Bertsche. This University is responsible for the quality of the program and is supported by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the University of Braunschweig, and other institutes.

VDI Certification
To obtain VDI certification, participants are required to attend the basic foundation modules RF1 and RF2, attend at least two additional reliability foundation modules, succesfully pass theoretical examinations for each attended reliability foundation module and succesfully complete a reliability project. The certification is issued by the University of Stuttgart.
