Abstract:

This report addresses the issue of where software should reside in the Work Breakdown Structure WBS for a space system. The report describes the various software activities that must be performed for space system development and provides recommendations as to where these activities belong in the standard product-oriented space system WBS structure, with specific focus on the very important cross-product software activities that must be accomplished on complex, software-intensive space systems. The report also recommends a specific organizational structure with responsibility for these cross-product software activities.
