Next Generation Flight Management Systems

To develop its next-generation flight management systems, CMC sought a new object-oriented, model-based process that would help comply with the DO-178C and ARP 4754A/4761 aviation industry standards.

Over the years, CMC has developed a comprehensive range of FMS products, designed to meet the specific needs of different sectors of the aviation market. The benefit of this approach was that each product satisfied a unique set of requirements – but from a systems and software engineering perspective, it takes more time and effort to develop and maintain separate software for each target market.

  • IBM Watson (IBM)
    Watson is a question answering computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language, developed in IBM's DeepQA project by a research team led by principal investigator David Ferrucci. Watson was named after IBM's first CEO and industrialist Thomas J. Watson. The computer system was specifically developed to answer questions on the quiz show Jeopardy!. In 2011, Watson competed on Jeopardy! against former winners Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings. Watson received the first place prize of $1 million. Watson had access to 200 million pages of structured and unstructured content consuming four terabytes of disk storage including the full text of Wikipedia, but was not connected to the Internet during the game. For each clue, Watson's three most probable responses were displayed on the television screen. Watson consistently outperformed its human opponents on the game's signaling device, but had trouble in a few categories, notably those having short clues containing only a few words. In February 2013, IBM announced that Watson software system's first commercial application would be for utilization management decisions in lung cancer treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in conjunction with health insurance company WellPoint. IBM Watson's former business chief Manoj Saxena says that 90% of nurses in the field who use Watson now follow its guidance.

  • OPERATIONAL IMPACT
  • Impact #1

    Accelerates development of new software by fostering the creation of portable reusable components.

    Impact #2

    Reduces defects by testing components earlier and creating fewer complex dependencies.

    Impact #3

    Improvement in staff productivity due to transparency of end-to-end traceability that does not distract engineers from their core development and testing tasks.
