Space project management - Part 80: Risk management; German version EN 16601-80:2014
Raumfahrt-Projektmanagement - Teil 80: Risikomanagement; Deutsche Fassung EN 16601-80:2014
This standard defines the principles and requirements for integrated risk management on a space project; it explains what is needed to implement a project-integrated risk management policy by any project actor, at any level (that is customer, first level supplier, or lower level suppliers). This standard contains a summary of the general risk management process, which is subdivided into four (4) basic steps and nine (9) tasks. The risk management process requires information exchange among all project domains, and provides visibility over risks, with a ranking according to their criticality for the project; these risks are monitored and controlled according to the rules defined for the domains to which they belong. The fields of application of this standard are all the activities of all the space project phases. A definition of project phasing is given in ECSS-M-ST-10. This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristics and constraints of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00. This document has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/CLC/TC 5 "Space", the secretariat of which is held by DIN. The responsible German standardization committee is Working Committee NA 131-10-01 AA "Interoperabilität von Informations-, Kommunikations- und Navigationssystemen" ("Interoperability of information, communication and navigation systems") of the Standards Committee Aerospace (NL) at DIN. This document supersedes DIN EN ISO 17666:2003-12. This document has been developed to cover specifically space systems and has therefore precedence over any EN covering the same scope but with a wider domain of applicability (for example: aerospace).
