About Configuration Management
Sapienza has considerable experience in providing Configuration and Documentation Management services to the Space Industry, notably as a provider to the European Space Agency (ESA) and Thales Alenia Space. Sapienza provides this service in accordance with best practises and applicable standards such as the European Cooperation Space Standardisation (ECSS) standards and ISO.
Our Teams (in Managed Services) and Manpower Consultants are normally responsible for the following activities depending on their academic achievements and industrial experience:
Designing and manufacturing space and defence hardware require specific knowledge and expertise. The Configuration Management service covers a number of key functions throughout all stages of the project life cycle:
- Change management
- Baseline management
- Approval of design and manufacturing documentation
- Management of project milestone reviews
- Configuration Status Accounting
Document Controllers are central to the information flow in complex engineering environments (with multi-tier supply chains) and, therefore, need to have a good understanding of a document’s lifecycle management and how it applies to the various phases of a project. It is important to have skilled staff with in-depth knowledge of the documentation procedures used for collating, registering, archiving, and distributing documentation:
- Knowledge of leading document management systems, e.g. DCCM, SharePoint and Windchill
- Creation of electronic documents
- Document receipt, registration, distribution, and archiving
- Document status reviews and project design reviews
- User support
Sapienza has been closely working with ESA for many years on refining Document and Configuration Management concepts. For many ESA projects, we have put together customised user and procedure guides which reflect the use of the systems specific to the project procedures in place. Our consultants support teams in defining the document database configuration, the user roles and responsibilities, and the specific project procedures, such as document referencing and exchanging of documents with industrial partners.
Our ECLIPSE software, Configuration Managers and Document Controllers are contributing to many European space flagship projects, including ISS, Galileo, Copernicus, Columbus, TIA, MTG, etc.
