Quality Assurance
OTI products comply with U.S. Code of Federal Regulations as well as other Quality Assurance (QA) standards. OTI believes that a well-defined and effective QA process that thrives on continuous improvement is the best vehicle to transform powerful ideas into powerful products.

Life Cycle
OTIs Quality Assurance Plan strictly enforces policies and specific procedures that ensure the reliability of all ETAP software. Under the Quality Assurance Plan for Nuclear (High Impact) Facility use, all releases of ETAP go through an intensive Verification & Validation (V&V) process throughout the revision life cycle. Verification is the process of determining whether or not the products of a given phase of the revision life cycle fulfill the requirements established during the previous phase. Validation is the process of evaluating software at the end of the revision life cycle to ensure compliance with software requirements. The V&V method for ETAP is extensive, consisting of thousands of test cases that encompass each and every calculation module, user interface, persistence, reports, plots, library data, etc. The test cases include a comprehensive comparison of study results and system performance against hand calculations, field measurements, industry standards (ANSI/IEEE, IEC, UL, etc.), and other established methods in order to ensure and verify the technical accuracy and performance stability of ETAP. The V&V process for the ETAP engineering libraries allows for 0% error in the library data based on published manufacturer data.

Audits
In accordance with the OTI Quality Assurance Program, all procedures and activities related to the quality of ETAP software are subject to audits. Qualified auditors periodically assess the program to detect any deviations from the complied standards and evaluate effectiveness of the existing plans and procedures. Audit reports are properly documented and are subject to audits conducted by our nuclear clients and ISO 9001:2000 certification assessments.
