World class training

Rapita Systems, the leading provider of real-time verification solutions for aerospace and automotive embedded systems, and ConsuNova, a leading global provider of DO-178C training, certification and compliance solutions, will host a two-and-a-half-day DO-178C Practical Training session at technology centers around the world.

The two independent organizers (Rapita Systems and ConsuNova) share many practical approaches to the DO-178C framework, implementation and execution and deliver successful DO-178C-compliant strategies for testing and verification to Avionics companies across the globe.

Attendees with certificates

The mix of training and workshop formats will help organizations understand and prepare for new processes and development activities that are needed to satisfy DO-178C requirements. This event has been designed specifically to address DO-178C topics that have long been major cost drivers in achieving DO-178C compliance.

The training will also address the challenge of certifying multicore systems in the DO-178C context with reference to satisfying the objectives of the CAST-32A position paper.

What will you learn?

In fast-paced sessions, you'll learn about DO-178C's intent, processes, and industry-best DO-178C practices.

Engineers & Managers will take away practical methods that they can apply in their projects immediately.

In hands-on workshops, you'll learn how to deal with hidden but costly DO-178C challenges.

Testers and Engineers will understand major technical cost drivers and how to avoid them.

This training is designed to be fast-paced, dynamic and up-to-date, and is given by working industry experts with a shared goal: teaching attendees industry-best practices that maximize the efficiency of managing and delivering software under DO-178C. This workshop covers the top two cost drivers in DO-178C: lack of workable/efficient process and excessive/missed verification objectives.

  • Day 1 focuses on key elements of DO-178C planning, understanding the key differences between DO-178B and DO-178C, avoiding mistakes and efficient ways to reduce the effort needed for the review cycle and hosting successful DO-178C Compliance Audits.
  • Day 2 focuses on requirements development, efficient ways to leverage previously-developed software, and how to reduce verification effort by 50%.
  • Day 3 is a half-day session focused on multicore timing analysis within the context of developing software to DO-178C (CAST-32A) standards.

This event will deliver a clear understanding of DO-178C, the implications and time-saving industry best practices.
