Another successful DO-178C training workshop in Bristol

This week, Rapita Systems and ConsuNova delivered a DO-178C Practical Training Workshop in Bristol.

The training was delivered by industry experts, Dr. Bernat, of Rapita Systems and DER Reza Madjidi, of ConsuNova.

In the two-day workshop, participants gained a clear understanding of the DO-178C certification process. They also learned about the hidden challenges of the DO-178C lifecycle, time-saving industry best practices and how to apply them.

One of the new additions to the presentation was a section from Guillem on the groundbreaking work Rapita Systems are doing to help our customers satisfy CAST-32A objectives for multicore systems.

CAST-32A guidance – relating to multicore – is an increasingly important part of DO-178C compliance as more companies move their systems to multicore architectures.
