DO-254 Compliance and Solutions: Including Outsourcing and Offshoring Aspects



In this session, learn about DO-254 principles and how to establish a requirements-based, high-quality design flow that supports the principles of DO-254 compliance.

RTCA/DO-254 is a recent design assurance standard for airborne electronic hardware. This is a challenging standard to comply with, and one that is affecting more and more companies across the globe, including India.

Compliance challenges can be compounded when working with customers across continents and without having a complete understanding of what compliance entails. The ability to establish compliant and highly productive design flows – whether it is an entire program, or simply the verification of a program-- can make the difference between companies that are successful in this market and those that fall by the wayside.

  • History and Current State of DO-254
  • DO-254 and Design Assurance Principles
  • DO-254 Compliance Challenges (and specific challenges in the outsourcing model)
  • Solutions to Aid DO-254 Compliance
  • Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
