Understanding how a tool fits into your process can be difficult.  Knowing what checks and balances are necessary to take the best advantage of the tool, gleaning the maximum possible benefit, is a science founded on undertanding the tool's functions, its strengths and weaknesses, and the needs of the process within which the tool will be employed.

TBV Associates has over 18 years of experience in and around the safety-critical software tools industry.  From automatic source code generators, through automated test case generation, our associates have programmed, used, and qualified a multitude of software development and verification tools.  

Our associates have even presented on the subject of tool qualification at the 2006 and 2011 FAA National Software and Complex Electronic Hardware Conferences, covering tool qualification under both DO-178B and DO-178C.  A greater depth and breadth of software tools understanding and knowledge is hard to come by.

Our tools-related services include:
  • Tool evaluation
  • Tool/process integration consulting
  • Tool qualification documentation review
  • Tool qualification consulting for the tool developer
  • Tool qualification consulting for the tool user
TBV Associates can help you to better understand the tools you use, and to gain the maximum benefit from your use of them.
