What's NEW in DO-178C?

Your Guide to Understanding the Changes in DO-178C

This course is recommended for the student who has completed introductory DO-178B training or who has equivalent experience, or any engineer/manager who is familiar with DO-178B, and wants to know what is different with the new DO-178C version. This course starts by introducing the work products of the SC-205 committee, identifying and explaining each one and briefly how it impacts compliance. Next, it provides a summary of all the changes. Then it goes into each of the changes and explains it thoroughly. Much of the discussion revolves around understanding and using the Annex A tables. Finally the supplement documents are examined and explained.
