Analyze your system design choices with MATLAB and Simulink

The ARP4754A standard addresses the systems engineering aspects of aircraft certification, including systems requirements, requirements validation, systems design, and system verification. This standard supports system engineering activities and analyses for a safe and robust implementation.

You can use MATLAB® and Simulink® to:

  • Iterate and refine system requirements by creating an executable specification
  • Model, simulate, and analyze different architecture choices related to robustness and maintainability
  • Establish end-to-end traceability from requirements to tests
  • Capitalize test scenarios to validate your system

Using Model-Based Design with ARP4754A Objectives

MATLAB and Simulink enable you to tackle system engineering activities in a unified executable environment:

  • Perform simulations and analysis on executable specifications
  • Use a common design language between systems, software, and hardware
  • Analyze the completeness of the ICD (contents, definition, and tolerance)
  • Analyze the architecture to meet the safety objectives
  • Avoid expensive prototypes using trade-offs, optimization, or regression studies

Satisfying ARP4754A objectives using Model-Based Design will ensure your system is equipped with functional compliance and safety and will save cost and time-to-market toward certification.
