How Experience with DO-178 Translates to Other Industries

Providing end-to-end service and serving our customers throughout the entire product design process are two of the greatest benefits of the recent merging of CertTech and WTI. CertTech brings to the table vast expertise performing in-depth analysis of high-level product requirements in order to define the necessary test cases to get the product certified. WTI, as you know, brings a proficiency in designing and building test equipment that can execute those test cases to ensure regulatory compliance. The experience of both companies resides heavily in the aerospace industry. This experience with stringent aerospace standards (like DO-178, which has become a standard for standards) is easily translated to other industries, including automotive and medical devices.

Meeting Medtech’s Quality Assurance Demands Through Effective Test Strategies

When the word “quality” comes up in highly regulated industries like aerospace, automotive, or medical device manufacturing, a lot comes with it into the conversation. Balancing quality assurance demands in order to maintain compliance with regulatory standards is just one part of that challenge. Another part of this is holding to those standards while also keeping product longevity in mind. After all, these are industries where once something is put into service, it’s expected to be operational for years or even decades to come. Pushing and pulling on both of these criteria are the ubiquitous demands to do more with less - and to do it faster.

Baseball and Life

I have been managing my son’s baseball teams since he was 3 years old. He is 17 now, and this will be our last season together. When I see him on the field, I feel so much pride in knowing what a great kid he was; teenager he is; and man he will someday be. 

As coaches, we have always recognized the tremendous responsibilities that are inherent to coaching a team sport. The things we have emphasized over the years have helped shape who they are and will become.

5 HIL Trends for Chassis and Body Electronics Test

According to FMI’s Automotive Electronic Control Unit (ECU) Market Assessment, the global market for ECUs – including engine, brake, suspension, and body control modules – is forecasted to grow at a strong CAGR of 7.1% through the period of 2017-2022. The race to creating smarter, safer, and cleaner cars for the mass market is tighter than ever, and with that comes the pressure to speed up the R&D cycle while still providing comprehensive, bulletproof testing that roots out potential problem areas.
