Quality Assurance

When feasible, Pagnotta Engineering, Inc. tailors an individualized Quality Assurance Plan.

The Quality Assurance Plan will include the following steps:

  • Using both formal and informal means of communication, we will keep both government project managers and contracting officers informed of task order progress.
  • PEI will hold regularly scheduled status meetings and provide status reports in order to identify and resolve issues in a timely manner.
  • Quality Assurance (QA) will be maintained by performing internal reviews of engineering processes, analysis methodology, and documentation.
  • The quality control (QC) function will be provided by senior engineering personnel.
  • Informal customer feedback

The Program Management Plan will include the following steps:

  • Review of customer’s requirements and scope of work. Review the requirements and Statement of Work (SOW) with the customer. This discussion will include assumptions that will be agreed upon by PEI and the customer.
  • Identification and assignment of key personnel (prime contractor and subcontractors) required to complete the task order.
  • Generation of a schedule highlighting key milestones such as design reviews, drawing release, and report issuance.
  • Key meetings required to complete the task order in response to the customer need date are also scheduled. Meetings include kick-off, recurring status, technical interchange, preliminary design review, critical design review, and inspections.
  • Documentation of all certification requirements needed to complete the task order. This documentation may include material testing requirements.

Development of a proposal that will include:

  • Scope of work to be performed
  • Assumptions
  • Defined deliverables such as drawings and analysis reports
  • Additional requirements (Testing and/or Fabrication)
  • Schedule

Cost breakdown for each task order which will include:

  • Overall firm fixed price (or Time and Material price) with breakdown of hours for each discipline
  • Drawing preparation and deliverables (including the software to be used)
  • Analysis/report writing
  • Review for certification (aircraft modification could require FAA DER approval or Professional Engineer review)
  • Project Management
  • Travel (if required)
  • Testing Cost (if required)
  • Fabrication Cost (if required)
Our Quality Assurance Plan, Program Management Plan, and all internal checking and reviewing procedures remain in place no matter how aggressive the schedule or urgent the need to complete engineering work. FEM results will not be processed or published without completion of our model checking process. Drawings will not be released without a checking and approval by senior personnel. Our team approach allows us to apply personnel where the need is greatest. All of our team are experienced at working multiple assignments, and we utilize our most experienced personnel as needed, depending on the type of need or problem encountered.
