About the training

A consistent IT architecture minimizes the risks in developing complex embedded systems. This course describes, discusses and establishes fundamental solution concepts for designing system and software architectures. These concepts are often highly important in implementing such security-critical systems successfully and efficiently. This course also provides detailed, practical exercises in the related use of modeling languages (e.g. UML).


This course will show you the best methods for analyzing, developing, documenting and managing consistent, coherent system and software architectures for complex embedded systems.
