The term “assurance” infers confidence. It also implies certainty, assertion and trustworthiness. The concepts and principles of assurance span multiple disciplines, application domains, system properties and diverse technologies. Assurance is a management process to ensure confidence that established requirements have been or can be fulfilled. Dependability is a system property or attribute with the ability to perform as and when required, encompassing the time-dependent quality characteristics. The dependability assurance process is guided by the management policy and technical directions of an organization in doing business. From a business perspective, system developers and system service providers should ensure that customers and users are getting value for their money. The implementation of an assurance process ensures sustainable business operations.
