ARP 4754A and ARP 4761 provides both newcomers and experienced system & safety engineers an insight into the key objectives of the Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) for aircraft and systems development and how to implement processes to achieve certification.
A good proportion of the course is spent describing and working through each of the core techniques of ARP-4761 primarily Functional Hazard Assessment (FHA), Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), and Common Cause Analysis (CCA), including each of the sub-analyses of Zonal Safety Analysis, Common Mode Analysis and Particular Risk Analysis.
The course provides details for the systems planning, implementation, verification and validation processes along with the specific objectives applied for each Design Assurance Level (DAL).
The course also looks at each of the methods for conducting the Safety Assessment Process, including worked examples for each of the core techniques. We discuss the regulatory framework in which ARP-4761 fits, and describe how it relates to other guidance for civil airborne systems and equipment, especially the relationship with the recently updated ARP-4754A.
