A good example of poor design and testing, it was a combination of poor software and having a single sensor / system with no redundancy.737 Max is a bad example of software malfunction.
Exactly the point i was making to Tim green.The crashes were down to a sensor failing without redundancy or fault detection. The software did exactly what it was meant to do, but it was reacting to an erroneous input.
Absolutely, dreadful regime of self certification being allowed too, nightmare situation, bad day at the office for the crews and unfortunate passengers.Exactly right. And mind boggling that the engineers were willing to rely on one sensor for such a safety critical application.
