Transition from experimental studies of plasma physics to full-scale electricity-producing fusion power plants
- Requirements Identification, allocation and traceability within DOORS
- Use of RQMP & DCM for traceability & verification.
- Cost : €16bn
ITERis an international nuclear fusion research and engineering project, which is currently building the world's largest experimental tokamaknuclear fusion reactor adjacent to the Cadarache facility in the south of France. The ITER project aims to make the long-awaited transition from experimental studies of plasma physics to full-scale electricity-producing fusion power plants. The project is funded and run by seven member entities — the European Union (EU), India, Japan, China, Russia, South Korea and the United States. The EU, as host party for the ITER complex, is contributing 45% of the cost, with the other six parties contributing 9% each.
The ‘Sun in a box’ is based on Nuclear Fusion and is expected to provide an alternative safer and more effective means of energy exploitation for humans on earth in the next century!
We offer competitive services due to our understanding of the client needs. The rcm2 team members that will be dedicated to this proposal each have an average of 25 years in the Systems Assurance (Safety/RAM) Engineering and Management.
We are an IBM Business Partner under ‘Application Specific Licensing’ (ASL) for Rational Suite of Products that include DOORS, because of our flagship ISCaDE product that extends the DOORS capability into managing hazards and safety risks in line with Safety Goals and Requirements.
Overall, rcm2 uniquely offers:
- Compliance to Client needs based on solid track record in similar organisations and industries;
- Track record of working on international projects (Europe and Asia).
- Flexibility and responsiveness to the client’s needs due to being a Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) dedicated to provision of specialist solutions with low overhead costs.
The main benefits for the client would be a high-value low-risk long-term partnership with a highly skilled and available technical team.
The rcm2 team supported the ITER-IO Systems Engineering Team in the following areas:
• Requirements Identification, allocation and traceability within DOORS (gap analysis)
• Export the DOORS-based Handbooks in the ITER Design Compliance Matrix (allocation of requirements to design modules)
• Promote the use of RQMP and the DCM for traceability & verification purposes (compliance to standards)
• Support Safety Requirements Traceability for certification
