Evolving test standards continuously keeps us upgrading test environments.
An intuitive software that reduced the risk of failing the compliance test.

It is well known that reliability of aircraft components is very important to aircraft during the flight because performance of the aircraft parts can affect flight safety directly.
All suppliers to the aircraft manufacturers are required to meet the stringent quality demands of the avionics industry and related equipment industries. Modern avionics systems continue to become more complex. This complexity and requirements for the compliance tests have placed more pressure on the vendors.

The Problem

Facing difficulty to conduct compliance test on the electronic components following myriad of regulatory changes.

The company F manufactures electric components to be mounted in aircrafts. The company have been increasing effectiveness in quality control management to meet high safety performance. Quality Assurance Department who conducts verification test to comply with international standards plays an important role in the organizations. "To gain global market access for our products, we must comply with region or country specific directives and it has been becoming difficult every year", said Mr. H, Director of the Quality Assurance Dept. at the company.

He also said, "We perform the strict compliance test and regulatory change is proceeding around the world, moreover the revisions of airframe base are made. Coping with the new regulatory requirements imposes a high degree of complexity upon our limited engineers. And the compliance test failures can be costly for a project team, time and money wise", said Mr. H. These circumstances urged him to find the solution to increase the production efficiency with increasing engineer’s capability.

As a consequence of the electrification, it has been more challenging to ensure the appropriate compliance tests. Mr. H had dealt with the pressure to perform the test to meet the requirements. His team had a tight schedule, he should ensure that the team have a proper and a clear understanding of the standards, procedures and methodology to prevent lack of compliance. He had been urged to improve the situation before any problem occurs.

Key Aspects of the Problem

  • Considerable man-hours needed to conduct complex compliance tests for electronic components in aircraft.

  • Coping with the new regulatory requirements for each airframe imposes a high degree of complexity upon engineers.

  • Struggling to establish the right compliance test procedure to prevent lack of compliance.
