© 2017, Springer International Publishing AG. Trade-offs between extra-functional properties, such as performance, reliability and resource utilisation, have been recognised as crucial in system design. The concept of Holistic Fault Tolerance (HFT) is aimed at targeting these trade-offs in run-time system control. Previous work has shown that HFT systems can have significant complexity, which may require sophisticated modelling at the design stage. This paper presents a novel HFT design methodology based on hierarchical modelling and stochastic simulations. The former caters to system complexity and the latter estimates extra-functional properties in the trade-offs. The method is demonstrated with an application example of number plate recognition software.
