    • MaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team Simulation for Multi-Decadal Projects (Constellation) Bill Othon Mike Conroy/Rebecca Mazzone (February 2010) And Many others before (Monell/George/Adams/Boyce) Used with Permission
    • Who Are We? • Mike ConroyMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Manager, Constellation, SE&I, SAVIO, Software SIG, Modeling and Simulation Team (MaST) – Used to: • Lead CxP Data Presentation and Visualization (until Feb, ‘09) • Lead Kennedy Operations Simulation • Office of Chief Engineer Engineering Processes Team (ISE) – Several other 3 letter words as well • Rebecca (Bec) Mazzone – Manager, Constellation, SE&I, SAVIO, Software SIG, MaST, Data Presentation and Visualization (DPV) – Used to: • Lead Distributed Observer Network Project within DPV
    • Our Time Lines… • Apollo First Lunar LaunchMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Mike was there – No Bec Yet • Shuttle STS-1 – Mike was in college, trying to be a NASA Co Op – Still No Bec, Getting Close • Constellation – Mike will be gone before first Moon Launch – Bec will retire before Constellation does. – This is by far the most complex System of Systems • Technology, Organization, Interfaces, Tools, Partners
    • MaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team One Problem Products Outlive People, Teams, Tools, Organizations and Programs
    • Problem Detail… • CxP is made up of multiple Projects.MaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team • These Projects are in various Lifecycle Phases. – Some have hardware being built today, some will not produce systems for years • These Projects need to be able to work together for at least the next 50 years. – Multiple generations of humans, teams, programs, partners and tools. – They need to share to be successful
    • Important Elements to Share/Save • Share and Save the KIDSMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Knowledge – Decisions, Experiences, Expertise – Information – Reports, Recommendations, Rationale – Data – Numbers, Pictures, Models, Equations – Sets – From various CxP and partner teams. • The Knowledge part is really hard – It is in peoples heads; they are rather attached to them
    • Where do we start • Understand the KIDSMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – What do they look like – Where to they live – How do they play with each other – How do we make it easier for new KIDS to play too – How do we protect them from each other (IP Issues) – How do we best preserve them for the future • Today we would like to share the MaST approach
    • MaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team MaST Approach Views on KIDS Steps Taken Examples
    • MaST View of Knowledge • It is created through experiences .MaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – What did they look at? How did they use it? – Who was involved? What did they learn? – What did they know when they started? – What tools did they use? When? Which Versions? What Inputs? • It lives in the people involved in the experience. – The test team, the analysis team, the decision makers • It is by far the hardest component to manage. – It is very often based on “Being There” – Everyone cannot “Be There”, some are not born yet
    • MaST View on Information • It is distilled from the data provided by the tools.MaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Analysis Results – Recommendations – Supporting Rationale – Risk Assessments • It lives in the documentation provided by the process and the associated CM systems – Test Results, Test Reports, Presentations – These tools have demonstrated their ability to publish their information for use by others
    • MaST View on Data • Data comes from tools being usedMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Pro-E for the flight vehicles – Arena and Extend for the integrated supply chains – Delmia for the integrated process analysis – IMSim (Trick) for integrated flight simulations – ScramNET for Launch Vehicle dynamics • Data lives in the files and CM systems – DDMS(s), Common Model Library(s), WIKI(s) – These tools can publish data for use in other systems. – Note: This is usually where Intellectual Property (IP) issues show up.
    • MaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team The Path Taken
    • MaST Goal • Make it Possible, then Easy, then Desirable to use our capabilities.MaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Seek out the obstacles and replace them with well planned solutions that address lifecycle needs for as many people as possible. – Make solutions so efficient and effective that they help from day one. – Make people, teams and projects part of the solution. • Recognize that our Leadership has Priorities – Bask in the glow of successes for something like 45 seconds before starting work on our next success
    • Investigate Prior Work for Tools • Copy or Adopt is easier than both buy and build. – National Research CouncilMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Center Simulation Tools – Conferences, Workshops, Research, DoD – OCE Engineering Process Initiatives (3 letter words) • Some of this work is in Constellation Today – HLA for Simulation to Simulation communication • Foundation for IMSim – Delmia for Process Development • In use by Ground Ops and Ares, rumored for Orion – Shared Visualization Environments • Foundations for Data Presentation and Visualization
    • Find Where the KIDS Live • Look at a sample of Constellation ToolsMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Where are KIDS stored, how do they flow in CxP? – Identify how to get them out, or at least get access? – Normalize so others can see if their KIDS can play • We noticed some tool/location groupings – Some KIDS live in Physics Based Tools • System State Information, Structural Information – Some KIDS live in Physical Environment Tools • Temporal / Spatial Information – Some KIDS also live in Supply Chain Tools • What you need when you need it (Next PM Challenge)
    • MaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team Physics Based KIDS
    • Physics - System State Information • Primarily related to the Flight activitiesMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Launch Preparations, Flight and Post Flight – Start with Guidance, Navigation and Control – Extend to Flight Dynamics as needed – Extend wherever else is needed. • Physics Based Description of Motion – Physics Based Launch, Ascent, Dock, Entry, Descent, Landing, Recovery, Retrieval – Couple with High Resolution Graphics For Human in the Loop Test and Evaluation
    • For the Physics Example… • Take Ares, Orion, Ground Ops, LAS and ISSMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Teach the KIDS to talk to one another • MAVERIC and ANTARES on Flight Side • Ground Operations Simulation • LAS Simulation and ISS Simulation – Provide infrastructure to let People and Simulations talk to one another • High Level Architecture, Trick, DS Net, DON – Provide the ability to share the new KIDS created with existing and future generations • Let us show you how it works…

    • Physical – Temporal Spatial Info. • Primarily related to the Ground Ops activitiesMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Operability Assessments and Optimization – Systems Integration – Launch Pads, Boosters, Vehicle, Access Platforms – Work Stands, Crane Envelopes – Human Factors, Reach, Loads • Note: there is more than one type of Ground… – Lunar Architectures – Surface Systems (Lunar, non-Lunar) – Surface Concepts
    • For The Physical Example • Ground Ops Pulls KIDS togetherMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – CAD, Concepts, Models and Processes from Orion, Ares, Ground Systems (includes Legacy Data) • Ground Ops integrates in Delmia (with IT) – All data pulled into one environment – Some data sets so big cannot be loaded anywhere else, teams come to Kennedy to see their data • MaST supporting export of KIDS from Delmia collaborative engineering efforts to share, store and preserve.

    • Preserve KIDS for the Future • Standard IS and ICE SystemsMaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Getting more and more services every day – Well tuned for Data and Information – Knowledge is a little different • On the Knowledge Side, you need to be able to re-experience the learning process – Since much of what we are doing is simulation, this means re-experience the simulation that helped develop the Knowledge. – However, simulations have a 3 to 5 year lifespan – But, if we can save the Simulation……
    • Save the Simulation • This is a Key Mission for the MaST DPV (Data Presentation and Visualization) Element.MaST – CxP Modeling and Simulation Team – Simulators provide a description of the 4-D data that represents the simulation used to make decisions. • Can also provide key measurements and images for display • Will soon be able to provide relevant Meta-Data • The Simulation can be replayed for team, analysis or after long term storage – Without need for the simulation infrastructure • Goal is to be able to do this forever – We have already started
