DO-200A Training: Aviation Database Development and Approval Class


DO-200A came after DO-178 so many persons incorrectly believe DO-200A is copied from DO-178:  False.  DO-200A has an entirely different premise, “preserving, ensuring, and proving data quality throughout the data processing chain”.  DO-200A is much different than DO-178, and this course explains the differences between quality “data” certification and avionics software.  This class focuses upon DO-200A’s true intent and real-world training compliance with DO-200A; also obtaining DO-200A Letters of Approval (LOA).   What processes are required for DO-200A?  How are data quality requirements specified, managed, and proven?  What tools can be used for DO-200A and when must DO-200A tools be qualified?  What is the role of DO-200A quality assurance and audits?  What mandatory DO-200A processes are required and what are the DO-200A Best Practices?  What is the basis of DO-201 and how does it related to DO-200?   How can DO-200A compliance costs and schedule be reduced by 20-30%?   The developer/teacher is the principal founder of two of the world’s largest aviation consulting companies and the principal author of several of the world’s most popular publications on aviation software/hardware development: Vance Hilderman has taught over 11,000 aviation 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.
