Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Reliability engineering dates back to reliability studies in the 20th century; since then, various models have been defined and used. Software engineering plays a key role from several viewpoints, but the main concern is that we're moving toward a more connected world, including enterprises and mobile devices. The three articles in this special issue illustrate current trends in this domain.
