 Systems

Overview,
Stakeholders
and
Requirements
 
 (Note:
Questions
1‐3
are
based
on
the
2007
doctoral
qualifying
exam
question
on
 vehicle
design
and
performance).
In
total
do
not
spend
more
than
4
hours.
 
 1. Describe
the
phases
of
vehicle
design.
For
each
phase,
state
the
objectives
of
 that
phase
and
describe
the
deliverables.
Cite
any
relevant
standards
or
 guidelines.
 
 2. Not
all
budgets
are
financial.
Describe
the
various
budgets
that
are
tracked
 during
vehicle
design
as
well
as
the
process
by
which
margins
are
allocated.
 
 3. Describe
the
role
of
prototyping
in
vehicle
design.
Note:
Prototyping
is
 defined
here
as
the
process
of
developing
a
model
(software,
hardware
or
 operational)
of
a
vehicle
or
a
subset
of
its
subsystems
or
components.
How
 does
prototyping
relate
to
waterfall
versus
spiral
development
approaches?
 
 
 (Note:
the
following
questions
relate
to
stakeholder
needs
identification)
 
 
 4. What
does
“bidirectional
traceability”
mean
in
NASA’s
stakeholder
 expectations
definition
process?
 
 5. Draw
an
approximate
stakeholder
network
map
for
a
new
meteorological
 satellite
mission
whose
function
it
is
specifically
to
track
hurricanes
in
the
 Atlantic
Ocean.
Show
the
stakeholders
as
nodes
and
identify
the
various
 types
of
flows
in
the
network.
 
 (Note:
the
following
questions
relate
to
requirements
definition)
 
 6. What
is
a
requirements
verification
matrix?
 
 7. A
jet
aircraft
is
expected
to
achieve
a
transcontinental
range
of
2,700
statute
 miles
while
carrying
a
payload
of
20
metric
tons.
Allocate
requirements
for
 the
dry
mass,
fuel
mass,
specific
fuel
consumption
and
any
other
quantities
 you
think
are
relevant.
For
each
derived
or
allocated
requirement
explain
 how
you
arrived
at
the
requirement.
