DLR projects in research and development are subject not only to direct project requirements but also to a large number of relevant standards and regulations. Particularly high demands on hardware, materials and processes in aerospace require specialized analysis of all relevant parameters and framework conditions in the first place. Hardware, materials and processes undergo project-specific qualifications or still better generic qualifications in order to meet all requirements regarding performance and quality.
The Coordinator Qualification advises and supports respective project managers of institutes and facilities at DLR in order to jointly create the necessary qualification plans, taking into account the applicable standards and regulations.
Systematic and standardized qualification not only results in cost reduction but most of all in minimizing risk within individual projects and furthermore preventing fundamental defects in the products. The aim of qualification is an individual adaption of the hardware which consists of EEE components or systems, to fit the needs of each customer.
