N-version Design vs. One Good Version

Hatton, Leslie (1997) N-version Design vs. One Good Version. IEEE Software, 14 (6). pp. 71-76. ISSN 0740-7459. (doi:10.1109/52.636672) (KAR id:21442)


Evidence indicates that n-version development techniques are more reliable than producing one "good" version-and cost effective in the long run. The author concludes that diverse, independent channels used in parallel are significantly superior to even the current state of the art, especially in situations where cost of failure is high.
