Services Provided by CCT:Software Assurance

Software Assurance is a discipline employed to provide confidence that software produced will be fit for its intended purpose in every respect.

Such assurance is of particular importance for safety critical and safety related applications and for any software required to have increased integrity.

CCT has recognised the importance of software assurance since the company’s formative years, with involvement in space satellite technology, transportation and energy production projects.

The company draws on broad experience of its professional staff, from many branches of engineering, to establish standards of excellence for cost-effective software solutions. A systematic and structured approach has been the key to CCT’s success in this field.

A successful software lifecycle begins with good planning and the establishment of requirements that are clearly and unambiguously defined and culminates in the whole-life maintenance of the application. CCT Software Engineers and Assurance Consultants have extensive experience in the delivery of successful software solutions, on-time, within budget. Since the early 1990’s CCT has participated in software projects ranging from the provision of engineering and programming to overall management of turn-key solutions, to satisfy the most demanding requirements of clients.

CCT has been awarded numerous contracts for software assurance services, verification and validation services, auditing and assessment on large-scale projects, to satisfy client’s requirements for software quality, safety and integrity. CCT has been appointed Independent Software Assessor for safety critical and safety related software, to comply with International Standards such as IEC 61508 and EN 50128.




Services Provided by CCT:EMC

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) can be defined as the ability of a device, equipment or system to function satisfactorily in its electromagnetic environment without introducing intolerable electromagnetic disturbances to anything in that environment.

In a broader sense, Human beings may be considered as part of a “system” in which electromagnetic effects must be minimised and controlled.

In the design phase, the EMC measures applicable for the project should be incorporated into the design. In the procurement phase, the requirements that have been specified during the design should be met by the supplier and during the commissioning phase the EMC requirements as specified in the design need to be checked on site, as part of the overall EMC verification and validation process..

Calculated Magnetic Field in a Railway Signaling System ATO Loop

CCT and it’s partner company, Bit Tips Asia have extensive experience in EMC relating, in particular to transportation projects, providing expertise in EMC over a wide range of systems and applications, applying International EMC standards where appropriate.

CCT and Bit Tips Asia provide in-depth EMC knowledge to multi-discipline teams on a wide range of systems engineering projects and have been involved in extensive testing performed at EMC Certification Laboratories to ensure compatibility requirements are fully satisfied.
