Subcommittees & Working Groups

Software Load Release (SLR) Working Group

ARINC Project Initiation/Modification (APIM)

The objective of the Simulator Software (SimSoft) Working Group is to identify, mitigate, and improve the development and use of software used in Flight Training Device (FTD) operations, engineering, and maintenance. Some topics that affect these processes include:

  • Software Distribution
  • Software Storage
  • System Testing and Integration
  • Configuration Control
  • Challenges and Risks of Regression

There are specific concerns that FSTD users have when a new software release is issued:

  • Time involved in a full validation of the software
  • Quality and content of associated documentation
  • Configuration control of the software release
  • Effects on training capabilities or existing regulations

Additionally, the SimSoft Working Group will discuss how to improve software guidance through the use of FSEMC-developed ARINC Standards.
