The N-Version Approach to Fault-Tolerant Software
December 1985 (vol. 11 no. 12)
pp. 1491-1501
A. Avizienis, Department of Computer Science, University of California
Evolution of the N-version software approach to the tolerance of design faults is reviewed. Principal requirements for the implementation of N-version software are summarized and the DEDIX distributed supervisor and testbed for the execution of N-version software is described. Goals of current research are presented and some potential benefits of the N-version approach are identified.
Index Terms:
tolerance of design faults, Design diversity, fault tolerance, multiple computation, N-version programming, N-version software, software reliability
