Applying an Agile approach to an aerospace concept

A trusted resource

Helitune are at the forefront of the aerospace industry, providing on board and portable applications and rotortuner solutions.

Many of Helitune’s projects are of a highly confidential nature due to their expertise in vibration monitoring, rotor track and balance systems.

We were approached to support the in-house developers and engineers, with all software strictly adhering to the industry and safety-critical standard of DO-178B.

Through collaboration we successfully introduced a flexible, Agile-influenced approach, delivering the project on time and to budget, within a very formal and rigid industry.

Project outcomes
  • Successful integration of an Agile approach – It was a bold move on our part to effectively pair an Agile-influenced approach with aerospace practices and standards.
  • Act as expert resources – Seamlessly extending Helitune’s resource pool through collaboration kept the project on track within budget and timeframe.
  • Adhere to confidentiality terms – Helitune’s project sensitivity meant all information was strictly confidential, with our team adhering to their privacy policy at all times.
  • Complying to aerospace standards – It was essential that all software created complied with the DO-178B industry standard, this was acheived through extensive research and dedication.

A collaborative approach

We release software every 2 weeks, continuously listening and responding to your feedback. Our customised portal and regular face-to-face contact are integral to our interactive way of working and involving you at each and every turn.
