ACVIP Training Planned for April 2021

ACVIP Training Planned for April 2021
Update: The first Industry Training Class, set for April 19-22, is full. The second Industry Training Class is set for May 10-13.

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

Adventium Labs will offer the ACVIP Modeling & Analysis Training Course in April 2021 on a date TBA. 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.

Reserve your seat for the May 10-13, 2021 class.

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