AFuzion’s 3,000 Students in 2019 – Training in DO-178C, DO-254, and ARP4754A

28 Oct

AFuzion trained a record 3,000 students in aviation development and certification so far in 2019.   With eight weeks remaining in 2019, last year’s record of 2,500 students will again be broken. Last week alone, 170 students were trained in DO-178C and DO-254 at Turkey’s largest aerospace company. 

AFuzion’s trainers provide both public and private training in most aviation development and certification topics including classes in DO-178C, DO-254, ARP4754A, DO-326A, ED-202A, DO-278A, DO-200B, ARP4761, CAST-32, ED-79A, ED-80, ED-12C, and AMC 20-152A training.  AFuzion’s newest class is 3-days and combines DO-178C training, DO-254 training, and ARP4754A training. Provided to over 700 engineers in 2019 alone, students are consistently calling AFuzion’s training “The best they have ever received.”  AFuzion’s next public class in DO-178C, DO-254, and ARP4754A is in Madrid, Spain, January 15-17, 2020.  For details, see here: https://doymus.com/training_DO_178.php

AFuzion’s trainers have a minimum 20-years of applied aviation engineering experience each, meaning AFuzion’s training includes practical examples of DO-178C software development, DO-254 hardware development, and ARP4754A / ARP4761 systems and safety.  Additional training modules cover Model Based Development per DO-331 and Object Oriented Technology per DO-332.  Avionics Multi-core processing training per CAST-32A is increasingly popular and AFuzion was selected as the sole trainer for the world’s largest group of U.S. Military avionics engineers at the U.S. Army Huntsville.  AFuzion’s military training in DO-178C, DO-254, and CAST-32A  has been provided to 350 U.S. Army engineering personnel.  Details are found here: https://afuzion.com/training/

Says AFuzion’s CEO, Vance Hilderman “AFuzion has been selected as the principal, or sole, trainer for all seven of the world’s leading aviation technical conferences in seven countries on five continents.  Instead of relaxing, we use that dominance to motivate continual improvement.  Our continual training improvements mean students have the very latest information on DO-178C, DO-254, ARP4754A, DO-326A, ED-202A, DO-278A, DO-200B, and ARP4761 in our classes.  It’s probably the key reason AFuzion’s trainers have provided more training in these topics than all 30 of our competitors, combined.”

Adds AFuzion’s senior manager, Jack Jones “Aviation is very dynamic. Just in the recent past new needs for EVTOL and UAV’s mean they must meet DO-178C, ARP4754A, and DO-254 guidelines for their aircraft.  But the application of D0-178C, D0-254, and ARP-4754A training is different and addressed in AFuzion’s classes.  Usually we customize the training for our 70+ private training customers annually without any additional charge – all part of AFuzion’s acclaimed service.

AFuzion Releases All-New Requirements Whitepaper for DO-178C, DO-254, and ARP4754A Software, Hardware, and Systems

20 Dec

 

AFuzion Inc. today announces the free availability of its newest technical whitepaper: “Requirements for Safety-Critical & Avionics Software, Hardware, and Systems”.  Previously available only to AFuzion’s 300+ clients, this latest paper is now available for free download from AFuzion’s whitepaper page.   Says Jeff Stevenson, AFuzion’s Business Manager:  “When AFuzion was smaller, we did business with 30-40% of the world’s avionics companies. But now the majority of them are AFuzion’s clients and our  technical papers are so widely distributed it only makes sense to make them fully available to all engineers worldwide.  The key is Safety, combined with efficiency and quality, so we’re adding a little year-end Holiday Cheer and making AFuzion’s latest paper publicly available.”

Adds Vance Hilderman, AFuzion’s Chief Technical Office and the author of this paper: “System, Software, and Hardware requirements are truly the key to safety-critical project success.  As we have taught 20,000 engineers in our AFuzion courses, Requirements development, management, and refinement are the true keys to project success. ARP4754 System requirements, DO-178C software requirements, and DO-254 hardware requirements development is both a science and an art. This paper describes how to build better systems faster and cheaper via Requirements.  Few things in life, or in aviation, are simple. But that truism is.”

This latest AFuzion paper is 14-pages filled with detailed information on creating, managing, refining, and validating requirements. Remember, verification means “does the implementation meet the requirements”, whereas validation asks “and do we have the ‘right’ requirements”.  This AFuzion paper shows why Validation is more important than Verification because without the right requirements, it is largely irrelevant if they are then verified.  Indeed. 

AFuzion has created perhaps the world’s largest library of technical whitepapers for safety-critical and aviation development. AFuzion’s decade’s old papers are still distributed by former employees (with the author’s name accidentally removed and replaced), but all AFuzion’s latest papers are freely available to clients.  Anyone is allowed to download up to two papers for free, so no reason to refer to the decades-old versions passed around elsewhere.

New Free Tech Webinar Friday, June 8: “Safety, Security, Agile Development: Pick Any 3!”

4 Jun

The most frequent question we get at AFuzion the past year from dozens of clients  is “How do I merge Agile Development into my safety-critical development while ensuring my software meets Security standards???”    If you’re into aviation, automotive, or medical devices, this question has Pass/Fail consequences.  If you’re programming a cappuccino machine, it has consequences … (imagine some hacker changing my espresso machine settings remotely to provide less caffeine in my morning routine (and afternoon; and evening).  TRAGIC!!

So we’re doing something about this, to avert more serious tragedies and enable developers worldwide to better merge AGILE development into their safety and security software.  Really.  This free technical webinar is limited to the first 500 registrants – click here for more info or to register:Free Registration June 7 Tech Webinar “Safety, Security, and AGILE Development – Pick Any Three!”
