Free DO-330 Avionics Tool Qualification Whitepaper, from Vance Hilderman, Afuzion Inc.
This DO-330 whitepaper condenses vital aviation software tool/qualification information and was peer reviewed by several noted industry experts. This whitepaper provides a solid introduction to Do-330 information, with new DO-330 facts for avionics tool qualification. Also provided is a Do-178C overview with an explanation of the DO-330 and DO-178C/254/278 relationship. Also explained are common DO-330 mistakes and how to prevent them. This DO-330 informational paper describes the various types of avionics tools, tool criteria, Do-330 Tool Qualification Levels, and the relationship to qualification activities.
Do-330 costs and cost reduction are of paramount concern, and this paper summarizes the key Do-330 activities with recommendations on reducing DO-330 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 avionics tools and tool qualification are founded, thus inspiring a need for the introduction of DO-330. Also, with the rapid growth of avionics tool complexity and importance in all forms of aircraft, many avionics developers now need to understand DO-330 best practices to better implement DO-330 tool qualification.
Adds Chris Jackson, Afuzion co-founder, "As an attorney and business jet owner/pilot, I know all about risk, reward, and the corresponding trade-offs. While I don't understand the intricacies as well as Mr. Hilderman, I particularly like the section on DO-330 cost reduction, and adopting DO-330 in his new book, so I advise everyone involved in avionics development to read this free Do-330 whitepaper - after all there are not many things in DO-330 which are free, but this whitepaper is."
