The PSE Competency Tracker and PSE Certification Scheme was developed as part of the EASIT2 project funded under the Leonardo Programme (project number2010-1-GB2-LEO05-03450). This project was led by the University of Strathclyde and evolved from the previous CCOPPS project. In addition to the University of Strathclyde, the EASIT2 project partners included NAFEMS, Enginsoft Spa, AMEC, E.ON, EADS, Geofem, Nevesbu, NOKIA, Renault, SELEX Galileo, and Tetra Pak.
Enginsoft Spa developed and continues to maintain the PSE Competency Tracker.
PSE Competencies are maintained by NAFEMS and its Technical Working Groups.
