DO-178C is never cheap, certainly not on the first project. And in clear cases outlined herein, DO-178C can increase costs above DO-178B, which already increased software certification costs by 20-40% itself. But is DO-178C really "too" expensive? Doesn't it actually reduce costs over DO-178B for companies who were doing it "right"? Does it reduce long-term costs at the expense of increased development cost? Will it improve safety and reliability and if so, to what degree? Exactly what benefits… CONTINUE READING
