Project Organization

In preparing for the CCPDS-R project, TRW placed a strong emphasis on evolving the right team. The CD phase team represented the essence of the architecture team (Section 11.2), which is responsible for an efficient engineering stage. This team had the following primary responsibilities:

• Analyze and specify the project requirements

• Define and develop the top-level architecture

• Plan the FSD phase software development activities

• Configure the process and development environment

• Establish trust and win-win relationships among the stakeholders

The CD phase team was small and expert, with little, if any, organizational hierarchy. One of its exceptional attributes was its complement of talent. All necessary skills were covered, and there was very little competition among personnel.

The FSD phase team was formed by transitioning many of the CD phase team members into leadership positions and expanding the number of personnel to the necessary levels for full-scale development. Figure D-2 illustrates the software organization evolution and FSD software responsibilities.

The organizational structure and responsibilities for CCPDS-R were very similar to those recommended in Figure 11-2. The staffing levels evolved as prescribed in Table 10-2.
