Course Overview

RTCA has teamed with MANNARINO Systems & Software Inc. to offer high quality and relevant training for the aviation industry in understanding the development assurance industry guidance material for aircraft and systems. MANNARINO uses their industry experience and technical expertise to provide training on the standard and recommended practices proposed by the SAE ARP4754A document.

This course covers in detail, industry guidance for the development of aircraft and aircraft systems and how this guidance is deployed in industry in terms of practical application within a company’s engineering processes and demonstration of compliance to ARP4754A objectives. The training provides a detailed review of the guidelines for System Development Assurance, applicable to commercial aircrafts and systems. It provides detailed guidance on which processes are required to develop and verify aircraft and systems, as well how these processes are tailored to the different aircraft systems and Functional Design Assurance Levels (FDAL), and it provides recommendations on the level of validation and verification rigor to be applied for each aircraft and system function based on FDAL. It provides in-class workshops with examples of the application of the guidance material for system & safety aspects.
