I agree with you, object-oriented techniques would make a developer's life much easier. Nevertheless, two third of all embedded software is written in C. I always regret that there are no more C++ projects. One argument of the C++ opponents is that C++ has a memory footprint that is too big. But I think that's nonsense. The compiler technology has made big steps forward in recent years so that you see no differences between C and C++ code. In some projects I have used UML but have a guess: the generated code was always C!
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
There’s a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
Pressure vessels are part of common equipment utilized in plants to store liquids and gases under high pressure. It is certain that pressurized fluids will develop stresses in the vessel, which when exceeds failure limits, will lead to hazardous incidents and fatalities.
