Phoenix, AZ, United States, 2008/11/26 - HighRely's RelyTrace requirements management product has added DO-254 support for complete avionics hardware and traceability management, enabling DO254 compliance.
HighRely’s RelyTRACE has been updated to now provide support for both software and hardware traceability via DO-178 and DO-254 respectively. DO178B, DO178C, and DO254 requirement traceability is required for avionics certification of software and hardware. DO-254 traceability can be partially satisfied by using DOORS, however, DO-254 requires the ability to specify top to bottom and bottom to top traceability for avionics hardware requirements, design, implementation (logic) and hardware tests, and back.
RelyTRACE supports DO-254 by providing an out-of-the-box package which operates on any PC or Server and manages avionics hardware requirements. A wide variety of hardware requirements tagging schema are supported, as is the ability to customize RelyTRACE to virtually any tagging schema. DO-254’s archival record requirements and configuration index needs are readily met by HighRely’s RelyTRACE. Coupled with JumpCert-254, the world’s most popular jumpstart to new DO-254 projects, RelyTRACE provides an end-to-end avionics hardware tool for DO-254 support.
Says Reza Madjidi, HighRely co-founder and the product manager for RelyTRACE: "With the growing demand of DO-254 and the lack of tool support to meet the need for DO-254 traceability, it was an obvious need we fulfilled by updating our popular HighRely RelyTRACE product to now support DO-254. Some of our clients use DOORS and RelyTRACE readily supports those clients as well as avionics hardware developers who do not have DOORS. The average client spends just $5,000 for a full RelyTRACE license capability and we’ve commonly heard that RelyTRACE saves that amount times ten. It’s really efficient. Plus, the only DO-254 user group in the world has a free Blog which supports RelyTRACE at do254blog.com."
Adds Vance Hilderman, co-author of the world’s only published book to date on DO-254 (available at all major bookstores and online sellers) "I was skeptical that a low-cost tool could truly provide complete DO-254 traceability. RelyTRACE by HighRely convinced me: it’s impressive."
