Reducing delays in avionics software engineering projects is extremely difficult due to the risk of failure in the software – where an error could result in fatal loss. More than 90% of their software verification and validation projects are delivered late.
The solution (called eDAT) put in place by HCL ERS relies on a workbench that interfaces the system under test with a machine dedicated to the test through a C/ C++ library (supporting discrete I/O, ARINC bus...), and targets the top five categories in avionics software testing / verification and validation (code review, low level testing, software-software integration testing, hardware-software integration testing, and analysis) based on the use of OneTest Embedded.
Using OneTest Embedded, the team ensured software code accuracy and consistency, and reduced their test case generation effort by 20 – 25%. They also reduced their code coupling analysis effort by one-third with OneTest Embedded – saving more than 700 hours of effort. In addition, they achieved more than 14% savings with assisted test creation from call graphs and the scriptless visual test editor.
