Civa POD Tools for Pipeline Qualifications
Overall

I think - no wonder, that the CIVA POD surface is easy to use. In the frame of the EU-funded PICASSO Project (see https://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/92890/reporting/en) Airbus as well CEA (CIVA) where partner besides other important aeronautic OEMs. This project was established to develop a handy system to do POD calculations including modelling approaches. It was established as a chance for a real common problem solver. By the way this topic avoided the problem to setup another EU Framework Project not being successfull in the commissions evaluation, we ended with 2 rounds before: offernig a bundle of flowers which only reflected the interenst of one of two project partners but not really demonstrating a common interest of all. POD in contrast was a real good subject as allpartners could easily team up. This objective of the project was decided in Berlin at the ECNDT 2006.
At Airbus already min 2 Excel-based tools existed for POD driven NDT-Procedure qualification
(https://www.ndt.net/article/reliability2009/Inhalt/we3a1.pdf), but the integration into CIVA seemed to be a further chance. Nevertheless the experience with the existing solutions in larger POD exercises (all NDT procedures are subject to POD based method qualifications) helped to optimize the software towards a certain simplicity for application.
I recommend some publications to show how this process happened:
