    success can be attributed to its paradigm of direct interaction and iterative development with end users. It would be unfortunate if overly aggressive project expansion were to jeopardize that model. The following sections highlight comments, questions, and recommendations that ensued for each of the seven themed sessions. a. MERCURY PROJECT SUMMARY (NASA SP) 4. MERCURY-REDSTONE LAUNCH-VEHICLE DEVELOPMENT AND PERFORMANCE. By JOACHIM P. KUETTNER, Ph. D., Chief, Saturn-Apollo Systems Integration Office, NASA George C. Marshall Space Flight Center; and EMIL BERTRAM, Chief, Special Projects Office, NASA Launch Operations Center.

    The project is led and managed by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Once the TALOS design has been qualified for flight, Frontier Aerospace will build the thrusters for Astrobotic’s lunar lander under a project called Frontier Aerospace Corporation Engine Testing (FACET). In , the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) offered the Project Management Shared Experience Program (PMSEP), the first agency-wide project management training program. After the Challenger accident, a reassessment established the need for a project management curriculum, and in , the Program/Project Management Steering Group (PPMSG) was established.

    Early Development of the Ring Current Model. The ring current model hosted in MSFC is a kinetic model that solves a Boltzmann initial/boundary value problem with specified electric and magnetic fields. Rather than tracking particles trajectories in detail, a bounce-averaged approach is taken.   The climate modeling program at GISS is primarily aimed at the development of 3D general circulation models (GCMs) and coupled atmosphere-ocean models for simulating Earth's climate system, although some research may include the use of regional climate models, 2D energy balance models, and 1D radiative-convective models.

Of a Project Success Predictor Model. This model's fundamental objective is to provide a mechanism to quantify the success of two or more proposed projects, thus making comparisons simple. You will be asked for your opinion concerning historical projects and factors that influenced the success or failure of each project.

The PM develops the project plan; develops and maintains the schedule; plans, controls, and executes the budget with PI concurrence; oversees risk management; executes configuration management activities and COR responsibilities; and serves as the activity’s primary interface with MSFC’s engineering management.

Through its world-class training curriculum, knowledge-sharing initiatives, development resources, and strategic communications, APPEL Knowledge Services helps ensure NASA’s technical workforce has the skills and knowledge needed to advance mission success. The NASA Explorers Institute (NEI) funded the.

The material. Bryan Barley is currently the chief engineer for NASA's Lunar Quest Program and the Discovery Program as part of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. Barley has worked for NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) for over 18 years.

The NASA NAFCOM (NASA-Air Force Cost Model) database (NAFCOM, ) was examined to obtain project level cost and technical metrics for a substantial number of historical NASA projects. The NAFCOM database is NASA's main repository of normalized cost and technical information on historical projects for use by the Agency's cost estimating community.

Hamaker A veteran cost estimator from the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center surveys the art of estimating from the days of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics in the s through Shuttle development, showing the NASA estimating community how to face new ideas and cultural changes.

the project including budget planning, schedule development, accomplishment monitoring, risk assessment, and project execution. The project management function serves to enable the technology development tasks and to represent the task accomplishments to the ETDP program office. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) manages the RHESE by:   Some propose that project failure is under-theorized, while others say that an emphasis on success and failure is narrow and counterproductive.

For a publicly accountable organization like NASA, understanding the causes of project failure is not an abstract concern. Barley has worked for NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) for over 18 years. He has served as a lead systems engineer on various projects including for the development of crew training systems and for the development of International Space Station flight hardware and flight simulators.
