Baldwin Boxall Communications Ltd.
Consultancy and Training on Software Design for Reliability and the use of Software Of Unknown Provenance (SOUP)
Designers and suppliers of life-safety audio communications systems, Baldwin Boxall Communications Limited (BBCL) are the selected supplier to many high-profile transportation projects. As part of their contract to supply the complex public address and voice alarm systems, BBCL need to provide assurance that their systems meet contractual requirements for software reliability. In October 2003 D.G.Edworthy Associates were commissioned to provide consultancy and training to the BBCL design team on the design of software for reliability and in the use of SOUP. This enabled the company to control their risks when incorporating software-related products from other suppliers in BBCL systems, and to satisfy contractual requirements placed on them by their customers.
