A record (used in the context of Source Code and Test Case objects) is a collection of data, captured from fields within the tool interface, which identifies the object.
Note that PACT does not manage the object itself, but rather information about the object, which is stored in the record.

Airworthiness Certification Services, LLC., provides resources to facilitate DO-254, DO-178C and other safety-critical programs. Our offering includes documentation templates, review checklists, and a tool called PACT that supports all important aspects of DO-254 and DO-178C compliance during project development. Contact us today for a free quote.
