Article Abstract

In addition to its well-known space activities, NASA performs many other engineering activities. Developing processes to ensure the quality and safety of systems is of paramount importance in achieving mission success. For this reason, NASA has created a software engineering initiative and similar activities for systems engineering. Processes and procedures have differing levels of users, from beginner to expert, so developing best in class processes and procedures can be challenging. The approach summarized uses a collection of best practices to help improve process documentation.
