- Product and Service Assembly
The Product and Service Assembly Initiative (
PSA), is a telecommunicationsmodel which allows new services to be designed, built and marketedmore easily. It provides a solutionset that allows telecom service providersto organise their business on a 'factory' model that can conceive, create, assemble and launch new products and services more effectively than is currently possible.
The [http://www.psainitiative.org PSA Initiative] , comprising a number of
carriers, systems integrators and software vendorsincluding Atos Origin, [http://www.axiomsystems.com Axiom Systems] , BT, Cable & Wireless, Huawei, Microsoft, Oracle Corporation, [http://www.qinetiq.com Qinetic] , TeliaSoneraand Tibco, has been a working group within the TMF(TeleManagement Forum) since October 2006, and the systems architecturewhich it has produced is gaining increasing industry acceptance.
The Product and Service Assembly model (PSA) builds on the experience of other industries, such as
automobileand consumer electronics, where the automationof product creation and assembly in a competitive market has long been addressed through a combination of Computer-aided Design (CAD) and Computer-aided Manufacturing (CAM).
PSA solution artifacts now available through the TMF include a published
NGOSScontract (TMF 211) which describes the role of an active catalogwithin a PSA type architecture. This document allows Service Providersto request PSA-compliant solutions from the vendor community and gives vendors detailed information on how to comply with such requests. Active Catalog Interface implementation details have been posted on Sourceforge. This is freely available under an open sourcelicense to promote ease of implementation and adoption.
