Capture of Apollo Lunar Module Reliability Lessons Learned: Program/Engineering Management

A July 2007 workshop attended by Constellation Program personnel traced the success of the Apollo Lunar Module designers to the NASA and contractor culture, Grumman's flat organization structure, an ability to hire the "best and brightest" engineers, placement of the Reliability function within System Engineering, definition of a "reference mission" common to all design elements, and strong configuration control. However, little formal training was provided, and limited best practice or lesson learned information was available.
