The usage stage of distributed IT&C applications – DIAs raises specific risks relating to the increased processing and usage strain related to live interactions. The incident categories and impact, as well as associated actors, are shown in order to serve as quantifying factors in the building of models aiming at quantifying their impact on distributed application reliability. A model aiming at extension impact assessment is built and details on the evaluation of the MERICS testing application are detailed. The component obsolescence is evaluated through an additional model and its impact on MERICS is shown alongside difficulties in identifying composing factors.
