  • Verification, Validation, and Certification Issues of Safety-Critical Communication Systems—An Introduction by the Editor

    In this paper, we study the effect of some of the features of safety-critical communication systems on the overall safety of a vehicle. Emphasis is placed on the effect of system complexity and tight coupling. A top-level functional model is developed to help evaluate the relative contribution of the features of safety-critical communication systems to overall system safety. Implications for the verification, validation, and certification of safety- critical communication systems are discussed.

  • Chapter 6 Engine Certification Standards Impact on MEE

    Aviation propulsion development continues to rely upon fossil fuels for the vast majority of commercial and military applications. Until these fuels are depleted or abandoned, burning them will continue to jeopardize air quality and provoke increased regulation. With those challenges in mind, research and development of more efficient and electric propulsion systems will expand. Fuel-cell technology is but one example that addresses such emission and resource challenges, and others, including negligible acoustic emissions and the potential to leverage current infrastructure models. For now, these technologies are consigned to smaller aircraft applications, but are expected to mature toward use in larger aircraft. Additionally, measures such as electric/conventional hybrid configurations will ultimately increase efficiencies and knowledge of electric systems while minimizing industrial costs. Requirements for greater flight time, stealth characteristics, and thrust-to-power ratios adds urgency to the development of efficient propulsion methods for applications such as UAVs, which looks to technologies such as asymmetrical capacitors to enhance electric propulsion efficiency. This book will take the reader through various technologies that will enable a more- electric aircraft future, as well as design methods and certification requirements of more-electric engines.

  • Conformance and Acceptance Testing

    This chapter covers user equipment (UE) and evolved Node B (eNB) conformance testing. It explains the role of certification bodies such as the global certification forum (GCF) and PCS type certification review board (PTCRB) in UE certification and in network operator acceptance testing, which‐although not formally part of the conformance testing regime‐is becoming an increasingly important step for equipment vendors to take before their products are actively marketed by specific operators. The chapter also explains radio frequency (RF) conformance testing and UE signaling conformance testing. A section describes the RF conformance tests as they apply to the UE and eNB. Another section covers the formal UE signaling conformance tests.

  • Certification of Engine Health Management Systems: Guidelines for Selecting Software Assurance Levels (2011-01-2704)

    The use of Engine Health Management (EHM) systems has been growing steadily in both the civilian and the military aerospace sectors. Barring a few notable exceptions (such as certain temperature and thrust margin monitoring) regulatory authorities around the world have not required these systems to be certified in any way. This is changing rapidly. New airframes and engines are increasingly being designed with the assumption that EHM will be an integral part of the way customers will operate these assets. This leads to a need for better guidelines on how such systems should be certified. The SAE E-32 committee on Propulsion System Health Monitoring is leading an industry-wide effort to develop a set of guidelines for certifying EHM systems. Since software plays a critical role in these systems, and since the hardware and the system-level aspects of certification have been covered thoroughly by other standards such as ARP 4754A, the emphasis of this initial effort is EHM software, and will result in an Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP 5987) titled, “Guidelines for Engine Health Management System Software Assurance Levels.” In this paper, we summarize ARP 5987, which is due to be published toward the end of 2011, and walk the reader through a real-life example (related to managing life limited parts) to illustrate clearly how these guidelines can be applied. The authors are presenting this paper on behalf of the E-32 working group that is responsible for writing the ARP.

  • Staff Skills and Knowledge – Training and Certification

    Successful team performance is based on the staff possessing adequate skills and knowledge. Accordingly, skill and knowledge requirements are discussed with every team candidate. The organization's skill and knowledge requirements may differ from specific projects. Project‐specific requirements may be included in the project contract requirements. Most organizations set education and professional training requirements for each of the software development and maintenance positions. The planning of training, retraining, and updating activities refers to the program contents, the number of participants, and the form of training. The role of the software quality assurance (SQA) function is supportive regarding the skill and knowledge required from software development staff, especially related to quality assurance topics. The successful operation of development and maintenance processes is supported in most cases by position certification of the key positions involved in performing these processes.

  • The Operation of Hands‐On Learning

    There are many operational tasks required to run a product training program that is both efficient and effective. This chapter covers a few areas that may or may not be part of the direct responsibility of the subject matter expert. Even if an expert is not accountable for the outcome of these areas, it is important that they understand how each one functions and how it affects their training, their program, and the company. The chapter also discusses a few things for instructors to make any product training program more effectively. Certification is important for instructors, executives, and many in between to understand the difference between a certificate and a certification. Learning that matters and that happens in a real environment with real and important results is more effective than any other type of learning. Just because mentoring encourages informal learning does not mean the program itself should not be organized or formalized.

  • Certifying Proficiency

    Product proficiency certification programs are a great way to increase the loyalty, the quality, and the reputation of a product. In her book,_Performance‐Based Certification_, Dr Hale points out that it is typical for corporations to include a code of conduct requirement in their certification programs. This is helpful if instructor's certification grants authorization to perform certain tasks. One of the important requirements of product proficiency certification is proof of impartiality. Three major logistical efforts help instructors to remain impartial and fair. Those three are the selection process and available opportunities of the program, the administration and traceability of the program, and the deviations and exceptions of the program. Certification programs require documentation that is more extensive. The certification program document should include documentation of any policies that are specific to this program.
