PARTS, MATERIALS, AND PROCESSES CONTROL PROGRAM FOR SPACE AND LAUNCH VEHICLES
|Publication Date:||13 June 2008|
This standard establishes the requirements for the preparation, implementation, and operation of a Parts, Materials, and Processes (PMP) engineering control program for use during the design, development, manufacture, assembly, integration and test of space and launch vehicle systems. The implementation of these requirements is intended to:
a. Assure integrated management of the selection, application, procurement, verification, control, and standardization of parts, materials, and processes (PMP).
b. Improve the reliability of program PMP
c. Improve procurement and test of small quantities of piece parts and materials that meet system requirements.
d. Reduce PMP failures at all levels of manufacturing, integration, assembly, and test.
e. Reduce program life cycle costs and enhance product performance during its life cycle.
