ACVIP Training

ACVIP Training

The Architecture Centric Virtual Integration Process (ACVIP) is an important advance in model-based virtual integration. When utilized with embedded computing system design projects, ACVIP aims to improve system capability by:

  • Reducing technical risk
  • Reducing cost and schedule overruns
  • Supporting conformance to industry standards & required certifications

ACVIP is included in the Future Vertical Lift Architecture Framework (FAF) for use on Army Aviation procurements.

Adventium Labs will offer the next ACVIP Modeling & Analysis Training Course in Fall 2021. Based on the ACVIP Modeling and Analysis Handbook, the course will supply participants with a working understanding of this powerful architectural model, providing hands-on experience with key modeling techniques and analysis tools. Those who complete the training will be able to more efficiently design, develop, test, and integrate complex cyber-physical systems.

Classes may be scheduled for participants from a single company or team. The minimum class size is eight. Adventium Labs reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to split larger classes into smaller cohorts.

Class Details
  • What: Eight live interactive virtual classes, 90 minutes each via Webex.
  • Who: Program managers, system designers, and software developers.
  • Participation in this course is restricted to U.S. Department of Defense employees and contractors. Verification required.
  • Prerequisites: For the hands-on modeling exercises we use Architecture Analysis & Design Language (AADL) in the Open Source AADL Tool Environment (OSATE). We will provide links to baseline resources prior to the class.
  • Cost: $1500 per student
