A proposed information technology facilitates assessment of multi-version control systems in safety-critical domains. It provides a quality evaluation applying a special metric-based probabilistic method to the graph model of a system. The proposed technology allows effective automation of the assessment process and helps to select multi-version projects based on calculated normalized diversity indicators. Those indicators can be further used for the probabilistic phase of the assessment. This technology can be also used in a half-automated mode to perform analysis and synthesis during design of multi-version systems. Using this technology optimizes the diversity injection into the project that helps to design multi-version systems with stated quality requirements.
