    Woodward’s Software Development Process is based on a methodology of requirements-driven software design and requirements-based verification, both of which are integral components to the development of software intended to support certification of an airborne system under the provisions defined in RTCA/DO-178B. 

    Woodward’s processes also allow for rapid software prototyping in parallel with the formal requirements and design effort. This approach provides several advantages over a traditional linear development: 
    • Provides early insight into low-level requirements likely to be introduced during the detailed software design
    • Allows for incremental builds of software to support early-stage hardware design and testing
    • Supports early involvement of verification processes to facilitate greater efficiency software testing efficiency 

    Woodward’s software processes have governed software development efforts that have led to many successful certifications for systems with Design Assurance Levels A, B, C, and D.
