Comparing the Relationship between Systems Engineering Processes and Project Success at NASA

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: Design Optimization

Research team: Kathryne Schomburg

Product designs are not decreasing in cost, yet the budget NASA must work from is becoming tighter. This research effort is expanding a previous study, which examined the relationship between systems engineering processes and project success in NASA flight hardware projects, and commercial and government organizations. The current phase of this research effort is examining systems engineering effectiveness across all NASA Centers.
