Today's avionics companies are challenged with having to adapt quickly to the fast-changing technology of real-time embedded software, coupled with tough regulatory compliance. In an effort to help ease these hurdles, Visure Solutions, Inc., an award-winning requirements ALM platform company, has partnered with San Diego, Calif.-based ConsuNova, a leading global provider of certification, compliance engineering services and solutions for safety-critical systems to the aerospace and defense industries.
Through this partnership, Visure Solutions will receive routine feedback from ConsuNova to better align Visure's Requirements Management solutions to the objectives of avionics systems, and software and hardware practices according to compliance guidelines from federal agencies, such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
"ConsuNova is considered a trusted engineering solution in the avionics market," said Dr. Moustapha Tadlaoui, Visure's CEO. "Partnering with ConsuNova will help Visure fine-tune and improve our technology platform for the avionics industry. We're trying to bring to the market a much more comprehensive offering of technology and consulting services that enable aerospace and defense customers to go through the certification process more easily."
According to Forrester, avionics and defense projects commonly consume 200% of time and budget while delivering only 60% of the required functionality.
"Aerospace and defense companies are working on highly critical systems and when they go through certification, they have to prove their systems are reliable; there is no room for failure," Tadlaoui said.
Through its comprehensive all-in-one requirements ALM, Visure already offers several out-of-the-box compliance templates for aerospace and defense companies. These solutions enable end-to-end traceability between all requirement-related artifacts in one single environment, and through the integration with other tools of the lifecycle.
Through Visure's platform, requirements for standards such as DO-178B/C and DO-254 are also dynamically traced through all stages of development, ensuring that each requirement is mapped to specific code/hardware item that is tested and verified and that all code/hardware items written correlate with project specifications.
"After careful evaluation of Visure's technology in Requirements Management, ConsuNova believes that Visure's solution is one of the most optimized in the industry, fully capable of covering DO-178C and DO-254 objectives," said Reza Madjidi, ConsuNova's CEO and FAA Consulting DER (Designated Engineering Representative). "A key mission of both organizations is to provide high-quality, efficient solutions, and use cutting-edge technology to achieve this. This partnership will provide direct benefits for our common customer-base seeking DO-254 and DO-178C compliance solutions. The combined offering will enable us to provide a comprehensive solution throughout the Optimized DO-178C/DO-254 process by applying Visure's robust tools and ConsuNova's optimized avionics process, training, and project execution."
The partnership will also help further fuel Visure's competitive advantage in the global embedded and system engineering market, as well as benefit the company's customers worldwide.
"As a requirements ALM vendor, we often have customers who need expertise in federal compliance requirements. Now, not only can we offer them a solid technical solution, but if they need guidance with the certification process, we can recommend them to our new partner, ConsuNova. It's a win-win-win," added Tadlaoui.
