Integrating System and Software Engineering for Certifiable Avionics Applications - White Paper
Avionics systems are complex systems that integrate hardware, communication media, have
many interactions with other subsystems within or outside of the aircraft, and, for the system
discussed in this presentation, integrate software that must be developed according to DO-
178B guidelines. System engineering and software engineering are two engineering
disciplines that are historically handled by teams with different cultures, and when their
engineering processes are supported by tools, use different, incompatible, tools.
