O-DA(Open Dependability through Assuredness™)


The Open Group standardized the O-DA in 2013. In the aerospace and automotive fields where high safety is required the creation of guarantee cases is mandatory. The O-DA explains definitions of terms and concepts such as dependability, high assurance, assurance case, O-DA framework and guidelines.In the O-DA framework, the responsible person can explain the responsibility to explain the request that the system should assure, and use the assurance case for the stakeholder during operations not only normal but also failure cases. The O-DA guideline introduces a method of confirming that the architecture has specified properties using the assurance case.

 Up until now, O-DA version officially released is O-DA version 1.0 but we are organizing working group planning to upgrade to version 2.0 under The Open Group Real-time & Embedded Systems forum. O-DA2.0, is a new version of the Dependability Architecture developed in O-DA 1.0, and it is used by general companies to implement enterprise architecture and manage multiple projects simultaneously. Dependability Architecture, with the aim of reducing rework by allowing enterprise architects to review and modify the architecture on the fly to improve quality and correctly reflect customer pain points and pleasure points, and reduce the number of man-hours spent on rework.
