Space product assurance - Critical-item control; English version EN 16602-10-04:2014
Raumfahrtproduktsicherung - Kontrolle von kritischen Teilen; Englische Fassung EN 16602-10-04:2014
Early identification of potential critical items provides valuable inputs to design engineering for their avoidance or elimination. Critical-item control provides management with acceptance rationale for those critical items that cannot be eliminated from the critical-item list, and identifies the means by which emanating risks can be controlled. This standard provides the requirements for the implementation of the critical-item control process as described in ECSS-Q-ST-10. This standard defines the principles, process, implementation and requirements for critical-items control. Clause 4 is the informative part of this standard, whereas Clause 5 and Annex A form the normative part. This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristics and constraints of a space project in accordance with ECSS-S-ST-00.
