Coordinates radiation requirements and implementation with Code 561 (Radiation Effects) Implements Workmanship Standards such as soldering, cabling, harnessing, conformal coating
February 3, NASA/GSFC Mission Assurance Approach NASA Chief Safety and Mission Assurance Officer (CSO) is the program/project focal point and is responsible for supporting the Goddard missions from an End-to-End Perspective which includes Procurement Activities through On-Orbit Operations. CSO has an independent reporting chain to the GSFC Center Director. The Mission Assurance Team supports the Program and Project Offices in their daily operations. However, if there are conflicting opinions it is the CSOs responsibility to report those disagreements to NASA management. (CONTINUED)
February 3, NASA/GSFC Mission Assurance Approach Generally the CSO is co-located with the project office, to provide the most efficient access to the project manager and his staff. It is desirable to have safety and reliability personnel co-located there as well. CSO must be a good communicator and understand where support is needed and keep the Project in the loop. CSO walks a fine line between supporting the Project and remaining an independent entity. (CONTINUED)
February 3, Chief Safety and Mission Assurance Officers (CSO, Code 323, 324) CSO duties in support of the Project are as follows: –Voting member of CCB and risk management board –Conduct audits/assessments at hardware developers (and provide follow-up). Responsible for determining mandatory inspection points –Support in resolution of hardware/software problems –Member of Source Evaluation Boards –Member of Senior Staff –Interface for all Printed Wiring Board (PWB) coupons –Point of contact for all manpower in Code 300 –Ensure LOD and LOA (task order) are written and followed to support the project. All task orders are in the Task Order Management System (TOMS). –Attendance and participation at all major reviews –Provide monthly presentations to Code 300 Management –Provide presentations to Project/Program Management as required –Development of Mission Assurance Requirements –Present Safety and Mission Success Review to Headquarters
February 3, Standard MAR In the recent past, the CSO used as a guide the Mission Assurance Guidelines (MAG) Procedure (300-PG ) and consultation with functional disciplines in Codes 301, 302, 320 and other GSFC organizations to develop the MAR for the Instrument, Spacecraft, and Ground System More recently, a Standard MAR began development. This is to be used as a tailoring tool to generate project MARs. The Standard MAR, including the requirements narrative and DIDs, are available on the Agency's PBMA web site in a community work area called "Goddard Mission Assurance Guide. The current versions of the individual components are available on the web site and are not expected to undergo further revisions. A controlled version of the Standard MAR has been prepared and is under review in anticipation of being placed under CM in the near future. A new Code 320 PG is being developed to establish relevant procedures and processes for its use.
February 3, Support at Suppliers The work activities performed by the developer and/or his suppliers are subject to evaluation and audit by government-designated representatives. CSO supports project by selecting on-site supplier representatives by one of several methods: –(1) a Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) person via a Letter Of Delegation (LOD), –(2) an independent assurance contractor (IAC) via a contract NASA Contract Assurance Services (NCAS) Code 300 Mission Assurance Support Contract (MASC) DCMA and NCAS contract employees: –Advantage: Funded by NASA HQ, not by the GSFC Program/Project budget –Disadvantage – Usually working several projects at one time MASC contract employees: –Advantage - Usually works exclusively on your project –Disadvantage - Costs are directly to the GSFC Program/Project budget
February 3, Software Assurance Our primary objective is to assess program / project products and processes to assure that programmatic capabilities are achieved. Software Assurance shall apply to flight and ground system software developed by or for GSFC. Government off-the-shelf (GOTS) software Modified off-the-shelf (MOTS) software Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software Overview Software assurance comprises a set of disciplines that strive to improve the overall quality of the product/software while employing risk mitigation techniques. Software Quality Software SafetySoftware Reliability Verification and Validation (V&V) Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V). SW Quality Assurance Functions: assures that the standards, processes, and procedures are appropriate for the project and correctly implemented, assures adherence to those software requirements, plans, procedures and standards, shall plan and conduct process and product assurance activities throughout the project development life cycle. Assures compliance to Center Software Process Improvement (SPI) initiatives and performs Product Process Quality Assurance (PPQA) assessments.
February 3, Goddard Review Process System Review Office, Code 301 Name: Mark Goans Title: Office Chief Tel:
February 3, Independent Review Process The Systems Review Office (SRO) is the implementation arm of the GSFC independent review process. Types of Independent Reviews –Mission Life-Cycle Reviews conducted by Standing Review Board (SRB) / HQ Driven Reference: NPR D NASA Space Flight Program and Project Management Requirements –GSFC Level Independent Reviews conducted by a SRO chartered Review Team Reference: GPR F Integrated Independent Reviews –Engineering Peer Reviews conducted by an independent peer review team Reference: GPR A Engineering Peer Reviews
February 3, Project Life-Cycle and Reviews SMSR
February 3, Center Level Independent Reviews (1 of 2) Center Level Independent Reviews comprise life cycle reviews for the Spacecraft(s), Instrument(s), Ground System(s) and Operations. –For larger projects dozens of reviews may be conducted The SRO convenes review teams to conduct Center Level Independent Reviews For each project, the SRO assigns a Systems Review Manager (SRM) to serve as the review team chair. The SRM develops a Systems Review Plan in conjunction with the Project that appropriately tailors the GSFC process to the mission needs. For each element the SRM establishes an appropriate independent review team with members chosen for their management and technical expertise The SRM presides at each review and ensures compliance with center-level processes.
February 3, Center Level Independent Reviews (2 of 2) The review team evaluates the project based on compliance with the review objectives and adherence to Key Project Management Practices –Formal Requests for Action or additional information are generated as needed –The review team caucuses and out briefs the project at the conclusion of the review The SRM provides a report to the Project documenting the review results and makes appropriate recommendations to the GSFC Center Management Council The SRM provides feedback the to mission SRB (HQ team) regarding key results from Center Level Reviews
February 3, Engineering Peer Reviews Each GSFC flight project is required to develop an Engineering Peer Review Plan Engineering Peer Reviews (EPRs) are conducted for spacecraft subsystem, instrument component, software and crosscutting functional elements. The project manager (PM) appoints an independent EPR chairperson for the various elements. For each element, the EPR chairperson recruits independent review team members based on their technical knowledge and practical experience. For each review the EPR chairperson provides a report with findings to the PM and the assigned SRM Engineering Peer Review Results are summarized at the next schedule Center Level Independent Review and/or Mission Life- cycle Review

February 3, Presenters Lessons Learned Mike Kelly
February 3, Presenters Lessons Learned Develop Mission Assurance Requirements and verify these requirements at the end of the procurement. Never approve suppliers Performance Assurance Implementation Plans (PAIPs). The project can review but not approve the PAIPs. CSOs should develop a professional relationship with all Mission Assurance Directors of Aerospace Companies they deal with CSO should develop a professional relationship with all levels within the project (this includes GSFC contracts reps., on-floor personnel, and mgmt.) CSO should use non-project (DCMA and NCAS/SAC) funded manpower to support the project in the field at all suppliers including (their suppliers-subs) (CONTINUED)
February 3, Presenters Lessons Learned (continued) CSO is on the same team as Project Managers. Project should understand exactly what the CSO is doing in support of their hardware/software. There must be open communication between the CSO and the Project members at all times. It is important that the CSO and Project communicate frequently to maintain a common understanding of intentions/expectations for resolving individual issues for monitoring of the contractor, and for communicating with the contractor. Frequent communication precludes "surprises" and "disconnects" from arising at inopportune times (such as formal reviews or contractor meetings). If CSO is working an out-of-house mission, the CSO should develop Letter of Delegation or Task Order for inspections and should visit the supplier regularly. If the CSO does not do this, then in my opinion, he/she is ineffective. (CONTINUED)
February 3, Presenters Lessons Learned (continued) Involve QA, Safety, and Reliability early in the project. Ensure that supplier or in-house GIDEP resolutions continue as a launch approaches, including searches of their subcontractors data. The frequency of GIDEP searches and status updates may need to be increased from the normal rate as launch date approaches. GIDEPs need to be dispositioned in near real-time in the days just prior to launch. Ensure that supplier supports post-launch anomaly resolutions. Ensure that supplier uses test as you fly methods. Ensure that supplier documents/tracks unknown cause anomalies since they will be scrutinized by Independent Review team. Ensure that supplier documents history of any engineering models in the event that they may become flight models. (CONTINUED)
February 3, Presenters Lessons Learned (continued) Institute a weekly telecon with all spacecraft/instrument suppliers to obtain status and track action items. Instruments developed by universities typically have been less rigorous in complying with quality requirements. University developers require extra scrutiny from Goddard. Visit the university to become familiar with the personnel, procedures, and standards. Institute periodic hardware inspections and facility audits. Compare the university standards to GSFC standards and identify differences. Determine workmanship certification status of personnel and their experience levels. During PWB development, some projects jump from the Engineering Model to flight development (did not have a protoflight model). Dont do this!!! Requirements Flow down and Supplier Control are key areas which must be addressed and performed successfully in order to reduce future spacecraft/instrument problems.
