Abstract:

The goal of the Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability in Computer-Aided Design RAMCAD research effort is to define a design environment that fully supports reliability, maintainability, and supportability RMS issues through the use of computer-aided designcomputer-aided engineering CAD CAE workstations. The goal of the Boeing Computer Services contract is to define a computer-aided method to help design engineers optimize designs relative to RMS issues. To accomplish this goal, Boeing analyzed the electronic design process currently used to design avionics systems for military applications. This paper describes the results of that study and describes the major tasks associated with the design of typical avionics systems from system requirements analysis through to detailed design and evaluation. In addition to providing task description and flow charts of the tasks performed during both system engineering and detailed design, the paper also describes the key packaging and manufacturing considerations that must be taken into account and discusses key problem areas in the current design process.
