Process management for avionics - Management plan - Part 2: Preparation and maintenance of an electronic COTS assembly management plan

IEC TS 62239-2:2017(E) applies to the development of COTS assembly management plans for the integration and management of electronic COTS assemblies in electronic systems used in the ADHP markets where reliability is generally critical. Depending on program or product line requirements and/or the technical characteristics of the electronic COTS assemblies and in agreement with the customer, the electronic COTS assembly management plans could consider tailoring the requirements of this document. Although developed for the avionics industry, this document can be applied by other high performance and high reliability industries at their discretion.

PROCESS MANAGEMENT FOR AVIONICS – MANAGEMENT PLAN –
Part 2: Preparation and maintenance of an electronic
COTS assembly management plan
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

The main task of IEC technical committees is to prepare International Standards. In

exceptional circumstances, a technical committee may propose the publication of a technical

specification when

• the required support cannot be obtained for the publication of an International Standard,

despite repeated efforts, or

• the subject is still under technical development or where, for any other reason, there is the

future but no immediate possibility of an agreement on an International Standard.

Technical specifications are subject to review within three years of publication to decide

whether they can be transformed into International Standards.

IEC TS 62239-2, which is a technical specification, has been prepared by IEC Technical

Committee 107: Process management for avionics.

INTRODUCTION

The purpose of this document is to define the requirements for developing an electronic

commercial off the shelf (COTS) assembly management plan (CAMP), hereinafter also called

the plan, to assure customers that all of the electronic COTS assemblies in the equipment of

the plan owner are selected and applied in controlled processes, and that the technical

requirements detailed in this document are accomplished. In general the owners of an

electronic COTS assembly management plan are original (electronic) equipment
manufacturers (OEMs) and system integrators for the aerospace, defence and high
performance (ADHP) electronics industry.

The objective is to define and document, as necessary, processes to assure the adequacy of

electronic COTS assemblies selected for use in electronic systems. This document states

objectives to be accomplished; it does not specify how tasks are performed, specific data

collected or reports issued. Those who prepare plans in compliance with this document are

encouraged to document processes that are the most effective and efficient for them in

accomplishing the objectives of this document. In order to allow flexibility in implementing and

updating the documented processes, plan authors are encouraged to refer to their own

internal process documents instead of including detailed process documentation within their

plans.

Organizations that prepare such plans are called the plan owners and may prepare a single

plan, and use it for all relevant products supplied by the organization, or may prepare a

separate plan for each relevant product or customer.

PROCESS MANAGEMENT FOR AVIONICS – MANAGEMENT PLAN –
Part 2: Preparation and maintenance of an electronic
COTS assembly management plan
1 Scope

This part of IEC 62239, which is a technical specification, applies to the development of

COTS assembly management plans (CAMPs) for the integration and management of

electronic COTS assemblies (see 3.1.13 and 3.1.20) in electronic systems used in the ADHP

markets where reliability is generally critical.

NOTE 1 Best practices for managing the electronic components within the electronic assemblies are described in

IEC TS 62239-1 and SAE EIA-STD-4899 which describe the electronic component management program (ECMP).

In cases where the electronic components can be identified and managed at the component level, ECMP can be

considered as an option to manage the components.

NOTE 2 The distinction between an electronic component and an electronic assembly is provided by the

definitions in Clause 3. This distinction between an electronic component and an electronic assembly is not always

recognized by industry: for example, filters, contactors, power supply modules, relays, magnetic assemblies, etc.,

can be considered as either components or assemblies. In each application it is considered a best practice for the

user of this document to clarify this distinction.

Depending on program or product line requirements and/or the technical characteristics of the

electronic COTS assemblies and in agreement with the customer, the electronic COTS

assembly management plans (CAMPs) could consider tailoring the requirements of this

document. See Annex A.

Although developed for the avionics industry, this document can be applied by other high

performance and high reliability industries at their discretion.
