The main innovations introduced by VARIES will be:

  • The VARIES project has the ambition to deliver a complete reference platform for managing variability in safety-critical embedded systems. Special attention will be given to the creation of safety-critical systems through a Product Line approach.
  • VARIES will achieve improved interoperability and industrial impact by building on already existing standardization efforts in the area of product lines.
  • In order to succeed or even to survive, manufacturers and system integrators must be able to deliver new products with speed, diversity, high quality, and at an acceptable cost. The VARIES project envisions to manage product & processes with an increase complexity with reduced effort figures, dealing with uncertainty while maintaining an independent hardware and software upgradability all along the life cycle.
