Tech Products Design & Development

One of the main characteristics of the digital era is the increasingly widespread and important role of software in the management and control of complex systems, safety-related and otherwise.
On the one hand, the software is required to carry out increasingly complex functions, on the other it is essential that it respects increasingly challenging quality and security standards, including those relating to cybersecurity.

It is vital, therefore, to design and develop reliable and efficient software, while ensuring high standards of safety and quality. This can be done by adopting structured, rigorous and systematic design and development approaches, essential for the development of both safety-critical and non-safety-critical systems for monitoring, diagnostics and maintenance support of concentrated, distributed systems and online.
The same approach is followed in the development of Software Utilities (e.g. Data Compilers) which, depending on the regulations of the reference domain (Automotive, Railway, Biomedical, etc.), must satisfy the stringent design requirements because they are responsible for generating data safety-related.

This involves the definition of the specifications of the software and cyber requirements, the design of functional, architectural and interface models, the design of low IT risk systems, up to the development and release of the software product tested and validated in accordance with the standards of applicable products.
