Development of an Automatic Flight Control System according to SAE-ARP4754A
Presenter : Mr. Abdullah VURAL Date : Oct. 25, 2016 Time : 09:40 - 10:20
This presentation gives an overall understanding of the basic steps of an Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) development processes. The distribution of the topics are made according to SAE-ARP 4754A – guidelines for development of civil aircraft and systems. The slides include applied steps and appropriate examples from AFCS development planning and development processes as well as design integrity elements. The transition conditions of development phases and their corresponding outputs will be also introduced during the presentation. Thanks to flow diagrams, the development processes can be seen comprehensively. Further, the safety aspects of the AFCS will be given in main topics. Many systems engineering topics like requirements capturing, V&V and testing will be held in details.
