Abstract

Actually, the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) project mission is to endow the scientific and engineering feasibility for fusion energy. Built LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN, ITER has become the largest project in applied superconductivity and, besides its technical complexity, ITER represent a management challenge as it bases on a unique worldwide collaboration of seven partners (China, EU, India, Japan, US, Russia and South Korea), who provide 90% of the components as in-kind contributions. Among ITER components, magnet system for plasma confinement is one of the most complex and advanced superconducting magnet systems ever designed, and its production is involving six of the ITER partners (all but India). In the following, quality assurance/quality control programs that have been implemented by ITER Organization (IO) to ensure conductor production uniformity and full traceability of intermediate assemblies across numerous suppliers will be illustrated.
