Avionics Software Advanced DO-178C Training Workshop


DO-178C (ED-12CC) is arguably the world’s most difficult software “standard” and many millions of lives rely on it yearly. But software development has rapidly evolved along with aircraft design:  many new technologies must be considered, and certified: C++, Model-Based Development, Formal Methods, non-CPU based logic, and advanced tools. New techniques for specifying avionics requirements and design must also be understood.  But what are detailed and derived DO-178C requirements?  How can C++ and OOT be safely used and certified per DO-332?   What are DO-178C Model-Based Development best practices in applying DO-331?  What are the answers to applying DO-178C’s Parameter Data Items?  What were the DO-178B weaknesses and how is DO-178C really different from DO-178B?  How can DO-178C cost and schedule be reduced by 20-30%?

This advanced DO-178C training is intended for persons with basic familiarity of DO-178 or safety-critical standards. It can be combined to follow the preceding basic DO-178C course.  The developer/teacher is the principal founder of two of the world’s largest avionics consulting companies and the principal author of the world’s most popular publications on DO-178: Vance Hilderman has taught over 11,000 avionics engineers and managers worldwide, including FAA and EASA officials, and engineers from 95 of the world’s largest 100 aviation companies: more than all the competitor’s current trainers in the world, combined.
