Quality Assurance by Areas

Wayside QA

Wayside QA

Lots of wayside controllers come to us from the previous century and still have no automated troubleshooting system. We have also successfully delivered testing of various modern controlling systems used in enterprises all over the globe. Especially for such cases, we can perform V&V of devices controlling the safety of train movement, with full adherence to the strict practices and guidelines within the rail industry.

Back Office QA

Back Office QA

The QA specialists at PSA have been involved in several verification and validation projects for dispatch systems on US class 1 railroads, US commuter transport, and South American cargo railroads. User management, track occupancy authorities, speed restrictions, vehicle tracking, alarms, train sheets, and timetable creation assistant are just a few examples of software that our team has tested.

Platform QA

Platform QA

We started in the rail industry back when old-school ticker monitors were widespread, and have advanced to modern IoT technologies. Whether you are developing classic platform devices or modern push notification systems built into mobile apps, we can perform all QA tests required to ensure a stress-free, easy experience for every passenger. We verify communication protocols, both wired and wireless, and create automated testing for a variety of operating systems.

In-Cab QA

In-Cab QA

We follow the philosophy of «better to be safe than sorry», which sums up the standard of Cenelec 50129. PSA confirms safety in SIL4 devices for cab teams or the driverless train governing software applications. We are prepared to implement full V&V activities with documented procedures and results that can be included in safety cases for audits.
