Over the years, increases in computer performance have enabled modeling and simulation-based approaches to become more varied than streamlined. Simulators rely increasingly on software models instead of hardware components as technology moved forward as well. This success has brought challenges with it.
Support for configuration and instantiation of aircraft simulations has become a major issue as the numbers of models grow, model fidelity increases, and there is a trend to design models to allow reuse between simulation environments. ASI’s robust Configuration Management (CM) System is a Systems Engineering process for establishing and maintaining consistency of all of our products’ performance, functional, and physical attributes with each device’s requirements, design, and operational information throughout its life.
Our Configuration Managers utilize Open Source, Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) products such as Apache Subdivision’s Subversion (SVN) for documentation control and git for software control. ASI also uses PDM Vault for drawing management.
ASI’s processes for Configuration Management has been reviewed and accredited by nqa as meeting ISO 9001-2015 standards.
