Design, Verification and Validation of an Avionics Cable Assembly using SysML

Design, Verification and Validation of an Avionics Cable Assembly using SysML

June 7, 2023 from 12:45 pm to 1:30 pm

Speaker: William Lozier - MITRE

When modeling systems, most developers focus on system components such as radios, sensors, network devices, and electrical assemblies that are clearly distinguishable from other system components. Often, these are called Line Replaceable Units (LRU). Missing from this type of modeling is a focus on cable assemblies, or, how these system components are wired together.
This presentation shows how SysML can be used to design an A-Kit cable assembly that supports verification by various techniques such as Velocity Scripts and Generic Tables; and validation against performance requirements.
