AFuzion Develops

AFuzion has been a leader in the aviation industry for over thirty years, with specialized expertise around training, development, and certification of safety-critical software and hardware related to avionics, namely the DO-178C and DO-254 certifications. Having trained over 30, 000 aviation engineers and professionals (a total that is more than all their competitors joined), AFuzion’s detail-oriented approach keeps safety compliance at the forefront for everyone.

AFuzion offers both public and private training, their public courses have spanned worldwide with leading conferences like the Society of Aerospace Engineers (SAE). Their private training is considered as one of the most preferred in the avionics industry among attendees, as it is customized to the specific requirements of each client, at no charge, who also receives access to 25 critical-safety whitepapers developed by the AFuzion team themselves, and attendee numbers are also unlimited with no additional fees required.

Planning Your Entire DO-178C and DO-254 Certification

The DO-178C (software) and DO-254 (hardware) development certifications are similar in their functions to ensure avionics systems function efficiently while airborne. The DO-178C (the revised edition from the DO-178B) is short for ‘Software Considerations in Airborne Systems Equipment Certification’. It’s used as a de facto guideline for avionics software development, some also call it the bible of this field, providing a framework for various avionics authorities to work from to ensure complete transparency during the development phase.

The DO-254 provides a guideline for design assurance in avionics electronic hardware. Training for the DO-254 covers the entire planning process, starting from conceptualization, planning, design, implementation, testing, and validation. The above certifications go hand-in-hand and follow a similar planning process and require planning and software lifecycle documents. Afuzion offers various documents to assist with the DO-178 Planning and DO-254 Planning processes, including Plans and Checklist Templates to keep track of all phases of planning and development.

AFuzion also offers the option to develop draft documents for the entire DO-178C and DO-254 planning and certification process.  They offer the following checklists and templates for the DO-178C (Software):
