Product Quality Assurance

WATT&WELL fulfills the product quality requirements in all project phases by following the quality management system standards and procedures. Design choices are made and justified according to customer specifications but are also in compliance with applicable standards (DO-254, DO-160, ARP4754A, ARP4761, ECSS). WATT&WELL can design equipment up to DAL A. The dependability team is able to run FMEA, FTA, and safety analysis, but also reliability analysis according to FIDES 2009.

EEE Components & Technology Management Plan

Components and technologies are chosen according to the expected level of quality and ratings margin. A typical set of documents include a components and technologies management plan, construction analysis, Lead-Free Control Plan, obsolescence management plan, assembly justification file, component justification file, Part Stress Analysis, radiation hazard assurance analysis, PCB questionnaire, components obsolescence status, and a survey report.

Continuous integration

Software Quality Assurance

The in-house software and FPGA team is developed according to DO-178, DO-254, or ECSS standards. A continuous integration environment enables source control and verification (unit testing including the coverage and functional testing). Automated reports generation provides daily metrics, including coding/design rules check results, coverage results, unit test results, functional test results, and design performance reports.

Project Quality Assurance

Projects are managed according to our quality management system standards and procedures. A development plan is initiated and maintained during all project phases. It covers project planning, project organization, project breakdown structure, project review organization, but also requires management, risk and opportunity management, cost control, product and quality assurance, configuration management, and ethics and compliance.
