  • Standards & Regulations Information Management: This activity group supports knowledge management about standards (e.g. DO178C, ISO26262, EN 50128/50126/50129, etc.), regulations and interpretations, in a form that can be stored, retrieved, categorized, associated, searched and browsed.
  • Assurance 'Project' Management: Functionalities concerned with the development of assurance cases, evidence management, and assurance process management. They include: guidance and re-use of assurance artefacts, ability to automate the most labor-intensive activities (e.g., traceability, compliance checking, assurance process planning, and metrics management, among others).
  • Compliance Management: The OpenCert tools help 'engineers' assess where they are with respect to their duties to conform to safety practices and standards, and still to motivate them to see the effective progress of the work and level of compliance.
  • Modular and Incremental Certification: OpenCert supports a modular safety assurance and certification approach to enable cost-effective reuse of pre-qualified building blocks in different contexts (e.g., systems, configurations, upgrades).
