We are the leading expert for process assessments.
We have performed assessments for the space industry and the construction industry.
What do these industries have in common?
They both use ISO 15288 for systems.
But naturally each industry has specific differences, after all constructing a highway is a bit different to flying off into space!
However we are using ISO 15504 part 6.1 intelligently for assessments of both that provide great value to the clients. A-lanes is our main client for construction industry assessments (see below).
As committee members we are completely up to date with the latest changes.
The Rijkswaterstaat (building authority) in the Netherlands has specified process assessment for construction projects. This is a world first best practice for construction.
This specifies the use of the Systems Life cycle standard ISO 15288. The assessment standard is ISO 15594-6 (part 6), which is the process assessment model matching ISO 15288 2008 revision. Han van Loon as the Switzerland ISO delegate is one of very few persons with experience in assessing companies against this standard. Due to some specific variations in the standards, it is important to select a Lead assessor with experience in both standards.
The ISO 15288 brings benefits to companies that properly implement the standard, and these benefits are multiplied when combined with a value-added target process profile. Leistungs Consult's principal has created a target process profile for A-Lanes, the leading consortium in the construction industry, that reduces risk by improving the process used every day.

ISO 15288 was revised in 2013. There is a new process landscape with additional processes as shown in the diagram below.To aid the concurrent use of ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 and ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207, corresponding processes of Clause 6 have the same subclause number. Many of the ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 processes seem similar to software-specific process implementations, but they preserve crucial distinctions based on the purpose, outcomes and audiences. Users of both ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 and ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207 should be sure to consider the distinct explanations and notes in each specific process.
This new revision of ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 is the product of a coordinated effort by IEEE and ISO/IEC JTC
1/SC 7. The base documents for the revision included the ISO/IEC standard and informative material from the 2004 IEEE adoption. Development of this revision was carefully coordinated with the parallel revision of ISO/IEC 12207:2008 to align structure, terms, and corresponding organizational and project processes.
Currently no clients have been requested to use the new standard. Should you be requested to use the standard, contact us about tailoring its use.
