Specification Tree

Specification Tree

A specification tree shows all specifications of a technical system under development in a hierarchical order.

For a spacecraft system it has the following levels:

  • System (requirements) specification - generated by customer
    • System (design to) specification - generated by system responsible prime contractor
      • Subsystem specifications - generated by system responsible prime contractor
        • Assembly¹ specifications - generated by subsystem responsible contractors
          • Unit specifications - generated by subsystem (or assembly) responsible contractors.

¹ An assembly level is defined as intermediate level when the subsystem contractor prefers to contract a group of units with complex interfaces to another contractor (for instance the operating system and subsystem application software can be an assembly of the data management subsystem).

    But just to ask us who we think we are....
