Software Development according to
ED12B/DO-178B and ED12C/DO-178C

In civil aviation it is very important that already at the beginning of a project all important demands and constraints for the software development are known and that their consequences have been understood. One focus of the training course is the efficient implementation of important demands so that the projects can be realised within an economically reasonable frame, while at the same time meeting the regulatory authorities' demands.
