DO-178B and the newly-released DO-178C have clearly defined objectives for software life cycle process activities such as software requirements definition, software design, coding, integration, verification, and configuration management. However, there is little in the way of guidance on the use of models, leaving aerospace companies to determine how to best apply Model-Based Design for developing DO-178 compliant software.

In this webinar we will show you best practices that can be adopted to implement such a workflow for developing software that satisfies DO-178 objectives using Model-Based Design. MathWorks intent is to help organizations avoid common pitfalls and reduce the time, effort, and costs required to develop high-integrity software that satisfies DO-178 objectives.
