Project Management of GFE Flight Projects

NASA-EAWI023RC Project Management of GFE Flight Projects


This work instruction defines the project management processes and associated products for the definition, planning and
implementation of GFE Flight Development Projects. These processes and products are defined in association with
specific life cycle phases. For each phase, required prerequisites, processes, products, and control gates are documented.
In addition, this work instruction defines project configuration management, project contract procedures, and templates
for key products and forms.


This work instruction is applicable to GF E Flight Development Projects managed by a division or office within the
Engineering Directorate, including Engineering Directorate Support Contracting, as described in section 7.3.3. GF E
Flight Development Projects contain flight hardware, firmware and/or software, including flight vehicle core systems,
crew equipment, payloads, advanced flight systems, and flight experiments that require design and implementation
work. Hereafter, this work instruction will refer to GF E Flight Development Projects as simply “GF E Flight Projects”.

COTS GFE Flight Projects are defined in EA—WI-002 and the implementation of those projects is covered by EA-WI-
002 Appendix C. COTS GFE Flight Project implementation is not a part of the scope of this work instruction.

This work instruction is applicable to project management processes and products for all life cycle phases of a GF E
Flight Project, beginning with feasibility assessment and continuing through flight certification, deployment and
operations. The planned approach for exceptions to this work instruction is described in section 7.4. Section 7.4 may be
applied due to size, schedule, cost, or other circumstances for any project.

This work instruction supports the processes defined in NPG 7120.5A, "NASA Program and Project Management
Processes and Requirements" and EA-WI-OOZ, “Project Approval and Implementation Procedure”. The traceability of
this work instruction to J SC SLP 4.4 “ Design Control” is found in Appendix C.

Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets

FREE ANALYSIS SPREADSHEETS 3 Over the last 10 years we have developed hundreds of spreadsheet tools to help us with our structural analysis work. We have made these available through the Abbott Aerospace web site and the XL Viking project. We have now brought them into the technical library. They have been updated, improved and the collection has been expanded to cover more analysis methods than ever before.

The XL-Viking Add-In for Excel

XL-Viking 2 We created the XL-Viking Excel add-in to satisfy our own need to make Excel a better engineering tool. XL-Viking shows your Excel Formula in a way that makes sense and brings essential new functionality to Microsoft Excel by providing an additional user interface and easy to use functions.

The Indispensable Tool For Engineers, Mathematicians, Scientists, Accountants and Teaching Professionals!


Technical Papers & Reports

This is our collection of public domain references. All of the material we make available has been placed in the public domain by the authors/owners. If you believe this is not the case and any of the library material is not in the public domain please let us know. If you have any reference material that you would like to see included in the library we would love to hear from you.

Market Analysis and Market Information

Our newest addition to the library is an on-going series of articles on the aircraft and aerospace market. These are part quantitative and part qualitative and introduce a new aspect to the competencies within Abbott Aerospace.
