Sapienza Releases the Latest Version of the ECLIPSE Suite 3.0
16 Apr, 2013
Sapienza Consulting announces a major new release of the ECLIPSE suite.
ECLIPSE 3.0 is a fundamental step forward in the evolution of the ECLIPSE suite as it includes two new fully-integrated modules, namely eNCTS (ECLIPSE Non-Conformance Tracking System module) and eRISK (ECLIPSE Risk Management Module).
Along with the introduction of the two new modules, the 3.0 release focuses on providing enhanced user experience with numerous new features in the following modules:
- Action Items Manager (AIM),
- Document Configuration and Change Management (DCCM).
Andrea Bennetti, Commercial Director of Space Products and Manpower at Sapienza Consulting said:
These latest additions will help us cement the success of the ECLIPSE suite amongst our clients’ space projects and missions, and allow them an ever more effective digitally integrated project environment for their team and partners to work with.
ECLIPSE suite is the only web-based, software platform designed for commercial Prime-Contractors, SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) and Governmental Space institutions alike. ECLIPSE suite empowers its users with a unique toolset supporting the management of PA/QA/PM/CM activities in space projects and missions according to the requirements of ECSS Standards.
The eNCTS is one of the latest modules included into the ECLIPSE suite. e-ncts supports the recording, evolution, reporting and reviewing of Non-Conformances (NC) raised against components of a system. The information to be collected regarding the NC can be customised on a project level by the System Administrator. It is also possible to link related NCs to each other. The module allows users to manage Non-Conformance Review Boards (NRBs) or Non-Conformance Reports (NCRs) and controls user access to different areas of the system based on product tree access rights.
eRISK is also integrated into the ECLIPSE suite. It fully supports the specific risk management process needs of space projects and missions. It allows recording, accessing, monitoring and resolving risks identified and associated with a complex engineering or scientific project.
The DCCM module fulfils all the document configuration requirements of a space project. All the integrated functions are tailored specifically for the space industry’s needs and best practises. Furthermore, it supports the document’s entire evolution (i.e. creation, modification, evolution and distribution) throughout its lifecycle.
AIM is a web-based application that allows the creation, allocation, monitoring and tracking of Action Items (AIs) and their associated information across small and large project teams alike. Each Action Item (AI) can be allocated to an Actionee and multiple Contributors, who can access and contribute to the Action Item’s progress, completion and closure via the web, in accordance to security permissions. Each AI enables all those involved to collaborate via a thread-based discussion capability which enables additional information to be provided in the form of video, images or documentation attachments.
RID supports space project and mission teams through the preparation, set-up, management and control of formal project and mission reviews. The RID application provides the means for project review participants to access deliverable data packs, contractual or technical baselines as well as requirements documentation via the web. RID supports the complete work flow of the approval and review process, and the assignment and lifecycle management of actions and eventual closure of RIDs in accordance with the ECSS Standards.
EEE is a customisable and centralised database of EEE parts for future usage in any space project as well as accessing a record of EEE parts which shows in which project they were used previously. The database allows collecting the details of a EEE part, which can define the type, component manufacturer, geographic location of the manufacturer, specifications, distributor and space qualification status. The database also allows selecting the qualified EEE parts for a specific project and then creating a Declared Component List from these selected parts.
