On-site Training for the Transportation Industry

On-site training can provide software project teams with the tools and techniques they need to be more productive and to produce high quality software that meets all regulatory and contractual requirements in the most cost-effective manner.

Training for the transportation industry is aimed at the following groups:
  • Companies developing software-based equipment intended for use in safety-related applications within the transportation infrastructure
  • Quality Assurance organizations within transit authorities who are charged with oversight of subcontractor software development activities
  • Organizations who perform independent verification and validation functions

On-site training is designed to help your staff understand what is required to comply with these safety-related regulations and standards:
  • Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) Hardware and Software for Train Control Applications: System Safety Considerations, DOT/FRA/ORD-03/14 April 2003
  • Introduction to Software Configuration Management, FRA, August 2006
  • 49 CFR Part 236—Rules, Standards, and Instructions Governing the Installation, Inspection, Maintenance, and Repair of Signal and Train Control Systems, Devices, and Appliances
  • Software Management Control Plan
  • Software Hazard Reporting
  • IEEE Standard 12207 Systems and Software—Software Development Lifecycle Processes

I am an active member of both the IEEE Standard 1012 Software Verification & Validation (V&V) and IEEE Standard 730 Software Quality Assurance Working Groups. I have also written a book on Software Verification and Validation which is used as a text in several undergraduate software engineering curricula as well as in many of my training courses.
