Aviation Systems Certification Services

PMV Groupe has an extensive certification experience with most of the aviation Authorities (EASA, FAA, TCCA...) and propose its expertise through PMV Consulting & Services in several areas; including compliance to industrial standards applicable to system design and System Engineering Methods.

Aviation certification context

Certification regulations and specifications are huge and complex and it is not easy to have in mind the relationship between all of them. In addition, they vary in function of the context, for example between two types of Aircrafts or between two organisations of different nature.
PMV Groupe may help, whatever the certification context is, product or process, by providing support for application of regulations and obtention of certificates or approvals.

System Engineering Methods

PMV Groupe experts have about 20 years of experience with critical System, Hardware, Software developments and with strong Safety and Reliability constraints.

Requirement Based Engineering is not so obvious to apply, especially in the context of concurrent engineering and development of complex systems. 

In addition to Safety, Reliability and Maintainability objectives, the methods shall also serve to develop the product on cost and on time through:

  • A better control of the progress and management of changes.
  • The most efficient way to fulfill the Certification requirements.

PMV Groupe, thanks to PMV Consulting & Services experts, provides support for defining and applying practical and efficient methodologies directly on your current and concrete projects.

Gap analysis

Versus applicable guidelines (e.g. ARP-4754A, DO-178C, DO-254, ECSS…) or adaptation to specific context:

  • To identify lacks, if any, and suggest ways for filling the gap.
  • To identify ways for optimization of the processes.

Specific trainings and workshops customized to your project

  • Functional analysis of your project,
  • Capture of good requirements, relevant with your product breakdown,
  • Cascading your requirements at the right level,
  • Handling the interfaces and defining simple means for traceability with functional requirements,
  • Establishing relevant and useful traceability from system, through design layers and down to the lowest levels,
  • Managing the changes occurring during development phase, why and how,
  • Specific cases, model based, pseudo language…

Independent review of your specifications and design

  • For correctness and completeness,
  • From standards but with technical analysis,
  • For consistency through various levels.
