NASA maintains a high level of technical discipline in documenting and adhering to program requirements. Requirements tailoring offers an opportunity to weigh the benefits of streamlining requirements against the inherent risk involved in such a decision.
Requirements tailoring is not a one-size-fits-all approach. The degree of tailoring depends, in part, on the complexity of an individual project, mission objectives and organizational responsibilities. Each decision is made within the context of the program and the amount of risk involved. The higher the perceived risk, the more scrutiny applied in the rationale of the decision-making process.
In this webinar, a panel of experienced Safety and Mission Assurance (SMA) practitioners will address the issues and opportunities in applying successful requirements tailoring techniques.
- Lisa Moore, Senior System Engineer, Johnson Space Center
- John O’Donnell, Manager, Quality Assurance, Jet Propulsion Laboratory
- Billy Stover, Deputy Chief Safety Officer, Commercial Crew Program, Kennedy Space Center
Listen as Moore shares stories of her personal experience with regard to requirements training. Learn from O’Donnell as he explains the Type II process, which primarily contains risk-class D space flight projects, or other space flight projects that do not get risk classified, and discusses the QA Requirements Tailoring Agreement. Hear Stover’s first-hand account of requirements tailoring as it relates to his experience with the Commercial Crew Program and discover how decision-making differs based on the nature of each mission.
