Achieve airworthiness compliance more efficiently

Automate verification, validation and compliance for aerospace software systems

Verification and certification processes are crucial throughout the full aircraft system lifecycle to ensure safety and performance. The aerospace industry is continually challenged with proof of compliance, especially compliance of aerospace software systems. Safety standards, such as DO178C, DO254 and DO278, have evolved in recent years to avoid defects or flaws in airborne software. In this white paper, learn about the tools, capabilities and processes that can help you achieve airworthiness compliance more efficiently and the benefits of a web-based solution for managing aerospace software development.

What is traceability in aerospace?

Traceability in aerospace means that every artifact change is tracked and reported throughout the development process. Traceability must be based on the links between artifacts. To accommodate functional safety compliance, traceability in aerospace needs to connect from the highest-level artifact down to the most granular. It should be impossible to make a change to anything without leaving a trace.

Aerospace requirements management

While software in aircraft represents the most impactful source of innovation, it is also a large source of complexity, creating challenges with proof of compliance. It’s imperative for aerospace and defense companies to implement the right tools, parameters and processes to effectively manage this complexity and create traceability.

Aerospace requirements management is key to doing so. Defining and managing requirements within a singular solution provides immense benefits compared to legacy approaches. It can ensure that requirements are integrated into the overall development process and make more timely and effective collaboration possible. It also supports robust traceability.

A web-based solution for managing aerospace software development

A web-based solution for managing aerospace software development can help companies bring together disconnected development teams, allowing them to collaborate more effectively and ultimately achieve airworthiness compliance faster. Using a web-based solution has key benefits, including creating traceability across all artifacts down to the source code and capturing and managing all requirements and changes in one place.
