Learning from failures can help facilitate innovation for technologies that will increase future mission success.
NASA’s mission-critical work is performed by project teams. The following projects are featured in this session: Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment (SAGE) III, and Astro-H.
Testing is an important part of reducing risk in spacecraft design, and can help determine limits and allow learning about a spacecraft’s performance.
In this VPMC, we discussed NASA’s implementation of the Program Management Improvement and Accountability Act (PMIAA), NASA’s High-Risk Corrective Action Plan (CAP) and examples of project management tailoring.
