23/04/2020 – Noordwijk – The Netherlands
Sapienza Consulting Ltd, a TP Group PLC company, today announces it has been awarded a 5-year renewal of contract to supply the ECLIPSE software Suite and its professional services to RAL Space (STFC).
RAL Space has been a user of the ECLIPSE Suite since 2017. The value of business continuity and process control the ECLIPSE Suite has brought them during this period was a major factor in deciding to renew the contract for a further 5 years.
In particular, RAL Space has been taking advantage of the Document Configuration & Change Management (DCCM), the Non-Conformance Tracking System (eNCTS) and Action Items Manager (AIM) modules for the last few years.
RAL Space uses the ECLIPSE Suite not only for their space projects but also to support the project management of the expansion of their test facilities at Harwell, the UK. Including the build of their large vacuum chamber, acoustic test, large RF test range and vibration testing facilities currently under construction in the coming year.
The ECLIPSE Suite will continue to support documentation, track non-conformance and actions relating to projects and programs tested at the facility.
Andrea Bennetti, Managing Director at Sapienza Consulting, said:
We are proud that RAL Space has decided to continue with our ECLIPSE Suite. Not only was RAL Space our first UK based client, but their continued operations of the ECLIPSE Suite and commitment to 5 further years shows their persistent faith in the growing UK (aero)space and defence sectors.
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 Suite 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 Non-Conformance Tracking System (eNCTS) module is the only commercially available ECSS compliant software that enables recording, monitoring and closure of Non-Conformances (NCs) found during the design, manufacture, assembly, integration and testing phases of space system engineering projects.
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.
