GECO: Configuration Management Tool

  • What does it allow?

    The objective of GECO is twofold: to assist the System Engineering Group to control and maintain the configuration items of a system, both in the development phase and in the operation and maintenance phase and to make this information available to the other groups in the organization.

  • Functionalities

    The functionality can be summarized as follows:

    • Configuration data repository (keeping and providing access to the product tree elements, interfaces, requirements, verification matrix, analysis, reports, etc.)

    • Data traceability (allowing to establish the link between the parent-child requirements)

    • Configuration management and quality control (facilitating the management of configuration changes, non-conformities and anomalies).

    • Automatic generation of requirement documents.
