Sapienza Consulting Awarded 5 Years Contract by Airbus Defence and Space UK

Sapienza Consulting Ltd, a tpgroup plc company, today announces it has been awarded a 5-year contract to supply the ECLIPSE software suite and its professional services to Airbus Defence & Space in the UK.

Airbus Defence and Space has been a user of the ECLIPSE suite since 2014 with various contracts at their Friedrichshafen, Munich (Germany) and Toulouse (France) sites. The value of integrated process control the ECLIPSE suite has brought to their projects and programs was a major factor towards bringing the UK on board.

In particular, Airbus Defence and Space has chosen to take advantage of the Document Configuration & Change Management (DCCM), the Review Item Discrepancy (eRID), Action Items Manager (AIM) and Dash Board Reporting (DASH) modules to bring efficiency and control to their supply chain document management, milestone review processing and subsequent action management.

We are proud that Airbus Defence and Space has decided to expand on the usage of our ECLIPSE suite to their UK sites. Not only was Airbus Defence and Space one of our first ECLIPSE suite clients, but their expansive operations of the ECLIPSE suite show persistent faith in our products and supporting consultancy services. Additionally, we believe that Airbus Defence and Space usage of the ECLIPSE suite in the UK will be a great opportunity to showcase the ECLIPSE suite to their customers and partners in the growing UK space sector.

The ECLIPSE software suite helps space project and mission teams achieve higher efficiency. If better coordination, control and compliance with applicable quality standards are your goals, ECLIPSE is the tool for you. ECLIPSE is the only collaborative suite of integrated applications designed with the invaluable experience of space and defence industry professionals. The ECLIPSE suite is instrumental to the successful operations of numerous(Inter)national Space Agencies, Large Platform System Integrators and SMEs across Europe.

The Document Configuration and Change Management (DCCM) module allows members of a project to create a document, its reference, its applicability and status according to pre-defined user access rights and security rules.

The ECLIPSE Review Items of Discrepancy (eRID) module supports space project and mission teams through the preparation, set-up, management and control of formal project and mission reviews. The eRID module provides the means for space project review participants to access deliverable data packs, contractual or technical baselines, as well as requirements documentation online. The eRID module supports the complete approval and review process, and the assignment and management of related actions and the eventual closure of discrepancies (RIDs).

The ECLIPSE Action Items Manager (AIM) functions as a dashboard because it monitors and reports on all the workflow actions created by other ECLIPSE software suite modules. AIM provides its users with a centralised access point to all existing actions within a specific project environment.

The ECLIPSE Dashboard Manager (DASH) module Uses MS Excel standard reporting capabilities allowing users to create project specific dashboard customisable to users’ needs. This provides users capability to analyse key data quickly for better decision making and production and review of KPI’s to any project or program.
