This rich-interactive application course is primarily designed for software engineers involved with safety and mission critical projects. The purpose of this course is to provide an overview and an introduction to the concepts of verification and validation in airborne software development. The course also provides you with a review of the concepts behind the internationally recognized guidelines DO-178C in the development of airborne software.
You will explore the importance of independent verification and audits and develop insight into code testing and test case design theory. This online program offers a comprehensive look at software testing and system testing as a combined activity; the highest level of test performed as a verification activity. Validation procedures in software development are also presented. Finally, you will be challenged to write test cases for a variety of scenarios and bring all that you have learned together for a walk-through on verification and validation of a pseudo-product.
