New Free Avionics Software DO-331 (MBD) and DO-332 (OOT) Whitepapers Available
From the principal author of the world's best-selling book on avionics certification and DO-178, this all new DO-331 and DO-332 whitepaper precedes his new forthcoming book titled, "The Avionics Development Ecosystem". DO-331 facts and Do-332 information are clearly explained in this free avionics software whitepaper.
Understanding and applying D0-331 and D0-332 is vital to modern avionics development, as avionics software modeling (DO-331) and objected oriented technology (OOT) such as C++ are increasingly applied to avionics. DO-331 information and DO-332 facts are succinctly provided. Novices and advanced developers alike can further their knowledge via the all-new Afuzion DO-331 training workshop and Afuzion DO-332 training workshop. This free "Understanding DO-331 and DO-332 Whitepaper" provides a DO-331 overview, DO-332 overview, DO-331 mistakes and how to avoid, DO-332 cost estimation and reduction, and DO-332 costs and benefits.
A new commercial plane typically contains over 10 million lines of code, with the total avionics development cost exceeding $2 billion dollars for the avionics systems onboard an all-new plane. And military avionics is more expensive, with military avionics software development costs exceeding $5 billion dollars on some aircraft and over $500 million for helicopter avionics. Even business jets are not immune: estimates of avionics software development for Gulfstream G550 and G650 avionics range from $1.5 billion to $2.5 billion dollars depending upon model and configuration. Clearly DO-331 modeling can reduce aviation software development costs while improving reliability and reusability. And the same applies to DO-332, OOT for aviation: modern technologies, particularly C++, are now mainstream and able to be used for even the most critical software such as DO-278 and DO-178C's Level A.
This whitepaper also discusses DO-331 modeling tools along with the DO-331 versus DO-333 formal methods association. DO-331 costs and DO-332 cost reduction are of paramount concern, and this paper summarizes the key DO331 activities with recommendations on reducing DO-331 costs.
As described in his forthcoming book "Avionics Development Ecosystem", author Vance Hilderman describes how changes in software technology fostered a need for changes to the very guidelines upon which aviation software is developed and he provides DO-331 facts and DO-332 information to improve development. Also, with the rapid growth of avionics complexity and importance in all forms of aircraft, many avionics developers now need to understand DO-331 best practices and DO-332 best practices; these topics are covered in Afuzion's DO-331 Class and DO-332 Class.
Adds Chris Jackson, Afuzion co-founder, "As an attorney and business jet owner/pilot, I am a user of these technologies but I am not highly technical or as capable a communicator as Vance Hilderman. Amazingly, these complex DO-331 and DO-332 topics are clearly explained so even I can understand Afuzion's DO-331 and DO-332 information. And instead of condensing 200 pages of DO-331 and DO-332 guidelines into 190 pages, Mr. Hilderman explains it in a dozen pages: brilliant. I even attended Afuzion's DO-331 training and DO-332 training workshop, and followed most of it."
