  This presentation describes the acceptance procedure in the series production of the superconducting cavities for the European XFEL. The cavities are produced by two manufacturers. To ensure they satisfy their performance requirements, the cavities have to pass more than 50 quality inspections, which are combined into four acceptance levels. Part of the inspections are done by the manufacturers, the remaining tests are conducted in a test facility at DESY. The inspections are recorded and processed based on DESY's Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) system, aka DESY EDMS. The DESY EDMS tracks all the individual cavities, keeps their entire production history, and associates all certificates and inspection results with the appropriate parts. The two manufacturers are integrated in the solution and can automatically and promptly upload inspections results to the DESY EDMS. The solution enables DESY to monitor the production progress and to ensure production quality.

  This presentation describes policies and methods for parts management during fabrication at the European XFEL. The objective is to provide procedures for reliably gathering, recording, processing and archiving the complete mandatory fabrication information. The solution is a foundation for conducting Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC), as it ensures that acceptance tests are recorded, signed-off and followed-up in a reliable and orderly way. It achieves compliance with legal regulations in certain areas. One example is the pressurized equipment directive (PED), which for certain (parts of) equipment requires that the complete fabrication and usage history is tracked throughout the entire lifespan of the XFEL facility. In addition, the solution provides a basis for building the necessary documentation for later installation, operation and maintenance activities. The solution is established in the series production of several accelerator components. It uses DESY’s Engineering Data Management System as central collaboration and documentation platform.
