NEPAG

NASA EEE Parts Assurance Group

The role of NEPAG is to provide knowledge, tools, information and access to resources to enable the project parts engineers and parts specialists to optimally support the circuit designers and to promote processes that will exclude quality and reliability part failures from the advanced stages of the project life cycle.

NEPAG objectives are to

  • Establish an inter-agency working group of lead parts engineers from NASA centers for agency-wide coordination of parts issues
  • Develop information technology-based communication system and tools to increase efficiency
  • Create a knowledge base of part supplier quality
  • Develop assurance tools for Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) parts
    • Guidelines and procedures for qualification
    • Shared knowledge of qualification results
    • Knowledge base on current COTS industry products and trends
  • Provide support to the MIL system
  • Maintain a current NASA Electrical, Electronic and Electromechanical (EEE) parts selection list
  • Influence non-government standards bodies through active participation
  • Reduce incidence of EEE parts failure
