Planning for the DO-254 project
The planning phase is crucial in the DO-254 project lifecycle, since it defines how all aspects of the project achieve DO-254 compliance. The team builds the Plan for Hardware Aspects of Certification document (PHAC), which should be approved before the project can proceed.
A weak planning phase is most commonly the culprit when DO-254 projects develop massive cost overruns and delays. Mentor Graphics can help you avoid DO-254 planning problems.
