The ARP-4754 standard addresses the systems engineering aspects of aircraft certification including systems requirements, requirements validation, systems design, and system verification. It is supported by DO-178, which specifies objectives for flight software certification, and DO-254, which specifies objectives for flight hardware certification. ARP-4754A, released in 2010, provides information about the use of modeling and simulation for requirements capture, prototyping, and requirements validation.
Satisfying the objectives of standards such as ARP-4754, DO-178, and DO-254 can be time-consuming and expensive because it requires rigorous and well-documented verification activities.
Using Model-Based Design, engineers can satisfy ARP-4754 objectives while realizing cost and time-to-market benefits associated with early verification of requirements, automated linking to requirements, model and code standards checking, code generation, report artifact generation, and test case reuse.
Simulink and related products aid system development for ARP-4754 certified programs.
