Embedded systems are used in many critical applications
where a failure can have serious consequences.
Therefore, achieving a high level of dependability is
an ultimate goal. However, in order to achieve this
goal we are in need of understanding the interrelationships
between the different dependability quality
attributes and other embedded systems’ quality attributes.
This research study provides indicators of
the relationship between the dependability quality attributes
and other quality attributes for embedded
systems by identifying the impact of architectural
tactics as the candidate solutions to construct dependable
