The ARP4754A standard addresses the systems engineering aspects of aircraft certification, including systems requirements, requirements validation, systems design, and system verification. This standard supports system engineering activities and analyses for a safe and robust implementation.

You can use MATLAB® and Simulink® to:

  • Iterate and refine system requirements by creating an executable specification
  • Model, simulate, and analyze different architecture choices related to robustness and maintainability
  • Establish end-to-end traceability from requirements to tests
  • Capitalize test scenarios to validate your system

Using Model-Based Design with ARP4754A Objectives

MATLAB and Simulink enable you to tackle system engineering activities in a unified executable environment:

  • Perform simulations and analysis on executable specifications
  • Use a common design language between systems, software, and hardware
  • Analyze the completeness of the ICD (contents, definition, and tolerance)
  • Analyze the architecture of feared events
  • Avoid expensive prototypes using trade-offs, optimization, or regression studies

Satisfying ARP4754A objectives using Model-Based Design will ensure your system is equipped with functional compliance and safety and will save cost and time-to-market toward certification.
