2. Identify Issues and Gaps, and Learn Objectives
To start the second phase, we pinpoint the top certification roadblocks unique to FAA, EASA, or Military standards and guidelines.
A comprehensive project assessment is next, including COTS, RTOS, and tool usage. We then evaluate adequacy, quality and depth of technical data (design, REQ, etc.) and note any key findings.
Lastly, DO-178C & DO-254 process and practice gaps are recorded, and objectives—DO or ARP—are reviewed during analysis sessions.
