Telespazio Product Assurance Standard
Telespazio applies its own Product & Production Quality Assurance Standard based on the main Aerospace and Defence regulations, named TPAS (Telespazio Quality Assurance Standard).
The TPAS is integrated into the quality management system and represents, for Telespazio, the internal quality assurance standard of the developed software and the correct application of production processes within the development, implementation and delivery of products/services, according to the internal quality policy, the customer requirements and those of the rules, regulations and applicable laws.
The organisation of the TPAS is deployed at the production sites of Telespazio and of the Customers, and performs, depending on the stage of production concerned, the tasks of control of business processes and verification and validation testing of the products/services, of assurance on the RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety), verification of the software through code inspection, planning, execution and reporting by the audits, of the management of non-conformities and software problems (NC/SP) and data collection for the preparation of metrics and statistics.
The TPAS also includes the tailoring standards for the reference standards used in the field of Aerospace and Defence, such as AQAP 2110 and ECSS Q-Series, providing transparency of the methodologies applied by Telespazio to its production processes, in line with the typical expectations of Customers regarding quality and compliance.
