  • correctness, consistency and adequacy of the verification and testing; deviations from plans and expectations, ensuring risks (impact) are appropriately classified, recorded and submitted to the change control board for disposition;
  • validation reports relating to previous applications, as appropriate; and that developed solutions are traceable to expectations.

  • Carry out audits, inspections or reviews on the overall project (as instantiations of the generic development process) as appropriate in various phases of development;
  • evaluate the conformity of the software and hardware processes and the developed software and hardware against the requirements of CENELEC and / or AREMA including the assigned integrity level and give a recommendation on the suitability of the software and hardware for intended use and indicate any application constraints as appropriate;
  • Check the correctness, consistency and adequacy of testing, integration and verification and capture deviations from the validation plan, including those results in the validation report.
  • Required Skills and Experience :

  • Bachelors degree in Electrical, Computer, Systems Engineering or equivalent
  • Minimum of 7 years relevant working experience
