Abstract : The aerospace industry continues to experience design escapes that significantly impact program execution and mission operations in spite of significant advances in design and analysis tool capabilities and robust command media governing the product development and design review process. This report presents the findings and recommendations from an MAIW industry teams evaluation of 170 design escape anomalies that were detected during either factory testing or on-orbit test and operations. This analysis shows that a majority of these defects should have been detected and resolved earlier in the product development lifecycle.
