QD30 SAFETY AND MISSION ASSURANCE PLAN FOR THE LAB-ON-A-CHIP APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT (LOCAD) PORTABLE TEST SYSTEM (PTS) SAFETY AND MISSION ASSURANCE DIRECTORATE
|Publication Date:||26 May 2005|
This document was prepared by the Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) Space Cargo Assurance Department (QD30) to define the Safety and Quality Plans for the MSFC-managed Lab-On-A-Chip Portable Test System (LOCAD-PTS) project. The LOCAD-PTS Project Manager is ultimately responsible for the safety, reliability, and quality of LOCAD-PTS products. The successful implementation of a Safety and Mission Assurance (S&MA) program requires a coordinated effort from all members of the LOCAD-PTS team involved in the procurement, testing, handling, and storage of the LOCAD-PTS. QD30 will serve as the focal point for the MSFC S&MA Directorate (QD01) on the LOCAD-PTS Project. The LOCAD-PTS Project Manager and LOCAD-PTS Lead Systems Engineer (LSE) will coordinate LOCAD-PTS S&MA activities with the QD30 assigned LOCAD-PTS S&MA Lead Engineer (LE).
This plan identifies the elements of the LOCAD-PTS S&MA program and implementation requirements, including the necessary inter-relationships among the MSFC LOCAD-PTS Project Office, the Engineering Directorate, and S&MA organizations.
The Safety and Quality Assurance plans included in this document were developed using MSFC-PLAN-3446, LOCAD-PTS Project Plan and the MSFC Management System (MMS) documentation as the primary inputs.
The purpose of this plan is to identify the strategy for implementing Safety and Quality programs on the LOCAD-PTS project to comply with the LOCAD-PTS Project Plan and the MMS documentation. The plan defines the necessary inter-relationships among the MSFC LOCAD-PTS Project Office, Science Directorate, and S&MA organizations.
Efforts required to support integrated elements of this plan, to be performed by external organizations, will be identified by the Project Manager and negotiated with the responsible organization.
This plan applies to all MSFC personnel involved in activities that can affect the safety or quality of the LOCAD-PTS and associated Special Test Equipment (STE) and Ground Support Equipment (GSE).
Where LOCAD-PTS is used in this document, the identified requirements are applicable to all MSFC elements of the Project. In the event that specific phases of the LOCAD-PTS Project are contracted out external to MSFC, subsequent S&MA planning will be documented and submitted for MSFC review and approval in accordance with the Contractor's Statement of Work (SOW) and MSFC Contract Obligations.
