System Requirements (spacecraft System) - Specification Tree

Specification Tree

The spacecraft system specification defines also the subsystems of the spacecraft e.g.:

  • Structure
  • Data management subsystem incl. software
  • Electrical Power
  • Mechanical
  • etc.

For each subsystem a subsystem specification is prepared by the Prime Contractor with the same specification structure shown above including references to the parent paragraph in the system specification. In the same way the subsystem contractor prepares an assembly or unit specification. All these specifications are listed in a so-called specification tree showing all specifications and their linkage as well as the issue / date of each specification.

Famous quotes containing the word tree:

    A tree that can fill the span of a man’s arms
    Grows from a downy tip;
    A terrace nine stories high
    Rises from hodfuls of earth;
    A journey of a thousand miles
    Starts from beneath one’s feet.
    Lao-Tzu (6th century B.C.)
