Abstract : This document establishes the requirements (including those cited in the Appendices herein) for the preparation, implementation, and operation of a Parts, Materials, and Processes (PMP) control program for use during the design, development, manufacture, assembly, integration and test of space systems. It is intended to be used in conjunction with Aerospace TOR-2006(8583)-5236, Technical Requirements for Electronic Parts, Materials, and Processes Used in Space Vehicles. 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. This document is intended for use in acquisition of all satellites and experimental missions (as applicable when referenced in the contract) intended for spaceflight where repair is not possible.
