Work with the Space Standard Framework (ECSS)
‘’The European Cooperation for Space Standardization is an initiative established to develop a coherent, single set of user-friendly standards for use in all European space activities.’’ – Source: ESA
‘’The ultimate goal of building such a standardization system, at European level, is to minimise life-cycle cost, while continually improving the quality, functional integrity, and compatibility of all elements of a space project. This goal is achieved by applying common standards for project management, quality, engineering and sustainability for the design, development, testing and qualification of hardware and software.’’’- Source: ESA
ECSS defines a scope of the processes with management and product assurance and explains how these European Space Industry requirements can be applied in your processes. The standard is intended to help organizations and suppliers formulate their requirements to distribute entrusted deliverable products. By following the ECSS guidelines that are implemented in our system your company will follow the same procedures as the other larger organisations such as: Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI), UK Space Agency, European Space Agency (ESA), Sapienza consulting and our Eclipse Suite Documentation Management Software.
