NASA Systems Engineering Processes and Requirememts

Keywords requirements systems engineering processes

The purpose of this document is to clearly articulate and establish the requirements on the implementing organization for performing systems engineering. Systems Engineering (SE) is a logical systems approach performed by multidisciplinary teams to engineer and integrate NASA's systems to ensure NASA products meet customers' needs. Implementation of this systems approach will enhance NASA's core engineering capabilities while improving safety, mission success, and affordability. This systems approach is applied to all elements of a system (i.e., hardware, software, human system integration) and all hierarchical levels of a system over the complete project life cycle.

This NASA Procedural Requirement (NPR) applies to NASA Headquarters and NASA Centers, including component facilities and technical and service support centers. This NPR applies to NASA employees and NASA support contractors that use NASA processes to augment and support NASA technical work. This NPR applies to Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a Federally Funded Research and Development Center, other contractors, grant recipients, or parties to agreements only to the extent specified or referenced in the appropriate contracts, grants, or agreements.
