USING NASA QUALITY STANDARDS NASA Academy of Aerospace (AAQ) Quality Mini-Workshop Ken Crane Quality Engineering Technical Discipline Team Lead NASA SAFETY CENTER March 22, 2012 disclaimer The following slides are non Prescriptive But Represent typical NASA Requirements and Guidelines That may be applied to NASA grants and/or cooperative agreements NASA Quality Policy NPD 8730.5 … mitigate risks associated with noncompliance. Risk considers the likelihood of noncompliance and the consequences associated with noncompliance, including the maturity, complexity, criticality, and value of work performed … Herb Shivers NASA/MSFC … attain confidence levels that are commensurate with the severity of consequences that would be incurred in the event of noncompliance. Herb Shivers NASA/MSFC … periodically reevaluated and adjusted based on changes to risk factors.

Critical hardware includes all flight hardware and any GSE that interfaces directly with flight hardware, or that is required to support launch readiness. Final inspection of flight hardware is performed to formally released documents. Projects define mandatory inspections for critical hardware (e.g., in-process and final) at *(your facility), subcontractors, and suppliers. All personnel involved in handling or testing of flight hardware are certified to standards approved by the responsible QA organization. Each project arranges for software quality assurance verification of the software traceability matrix to ensure that requirements are correctly applied and that critical mission software has been appropriately tested. Each project develops a QA Plan (hardware and software).
