There are ten objective tables in DO-178C/ED-12C, but eleven in DO-330/ED-215! A table T-0 were created to summarize the objectives to be satisfied from the user perspective.
The objectives address the use of the tool in the software life cycle processes. This table (identified as “Tool Operational Processes) thus identifies objectives for:
- Planning process: To define the need for qualification and the applicable tool qualification level. Typically this information is provided in the PSAC
- Development processes: To develop the Tool Operationnal Requirements
- Integration process: To install the tool in the Tool Operational Environment
- And the four objectives of the Tool Operation Verification and Validation process.
