Certified Training
Applied DO-178C for Aviation Software Success
11:00  to  16:30 v 'Room - Charlotte'

In this fast-paced AEE course, experienced avionics engineers learn how to optimize DO-178C for real aviation software success.  Not just theory, but practical examples to develop better compliance with DO-178C (ED-12C) for civil, military, UAVs, and eVTOL aircraft. The World is adopting DO-178C – be prepared to succeed. 

Software/Hardware development has rapidly evolved and interpretations of DO-178C/DO-254 have likewise changed. Attendees learn the latest rules including advanced software/hardware certification, EASA and CAST issue papers, trends in future avionics development, and much more as summarized below.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Quick refresher on basic DO-178C and “how” it is applied to avionics
  • The Five Plans and Three Standards mandatory for DO-178C
  • Advanced Safety, Derived Requirements, and Detailed Hardware/Software Requirements
  • Key software design, data flow/control flow, coupling, dead code, and deactivated code
  • Understanding advanced DO-178C mistakes and best practices to avoid them including model-based development, OOT, and C++
  • Multi-Core Processing usage and compliance
  • Model-Based Development rules and best practices
  • DO-330/ED-215 Software Tool Qualification
  • DO-331/ED-216 Model-Based Development and Verification
  • DO-332/ED-217 Object-Oriented Technology

 
WHO:

Attendees may include engineers, managers, and quality assurance or certification personnel. No prior experience is needed; we will send basic training materials in advance to peruse.

Certified Training
Applying SAE ARP4754A and the New ARP4754B for Aircraft Systems
10:00  to  16:00 v 'Room - Charlotte'

The now nearly mandatory SAE-ARP4754A provides guidance for the development of aircraft and aircraft systems while taking into account the overall aircraft operating environment and functions. ARP4754 was long “suggested” for commercial avionics; the new ARP4754A is now required and increasingly mandatory for all avionics/avionics including civil aviation, eVTOL, and worldwide militaries and UAVs. ARP-754A is commonly called “DO-178 for Aviation Systems”, but it’s much different: ARP4754A requires detailed safety processes (ARP4761/A) with FHA, PSSA, and SSA’s to determine then prove the design, architecture, and safety features. ARP4754A also requires detailed data, systems-level planning, traceability, V&V, and tight configuration management. While bearing some semblance to DO-178C, ARP4754A really covers the Avionics Development Ecosystem and is a mandatory foundation – it must come BEFORE hardware and software but be continually addressed during development. This course is for those avionics and systems engineers wanting to understand and apply better ARP4754A compliance while understanding what the new ARP4754B and ARP4761A will require.

KEY FEATURES:

  • How ARP4754A fits into the Avionics Development Ecosystem including ARP4761A, DO-178C, and DO-254
  • Avionics Safety Assessments: FHA, PSSA, and SSA
  • Differences between ARP4754 and ARP4754A and forthcoming ARP4754B
  • ARP4754A Planning – what is really required
  • Aviation Safety:  what is required for ARP4754A per ARP4761
  • Handling Derived and Safety Requirements per ARP4754A
  • System Requirements – What, Where, Why, and How?
  • Planning, Development, and Traceability Processes for Systems
  • ARP4754A Documentation
  • ARP4754A Verification & Validation
  • ARP4754A Best Practices & Common Mistakes
