    • Ensuring the Success of 5 NASA/JPL Projects Launched in 8 Months 2012 Project Management Challenge Orlando, Florida February 22-23, 2012 Rod Zieger, Manager, JPL Project Support Office Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology John Hunter, JPL Project Support Office Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology © 2012 California Institute of Technology. Government sponsorship acknowledged.
    • Purpose:• This presentation will show the value of the JPL Project Support Office (PSO) to mission success during a period of intense mission activity.• The focus is on contributing to the success of 5 mission launches in 2011 and 2012, while ensuring the success of all other JPL missions in implementation and operations. 2
    • Project Support Office PROJECT SUPPORT OFFICE Topic of this presentation COORDINATION and INTEGRATION PROJECT PLANNING PROJECT ENGINEERING LAUNCH APPROVAL ENGINEERING, LAUNCH OFFICE OFFICE SERVICES & IMPORT/EXPORT CONTROL• NPR 7120.5 Support & Traceability • Flight Project Practices • Launch Approval Process• SRB Support • Technical Infrastructure • LA HQ Interfaces• Lifecycle Review Support • Reviews • Advanced Launch Services• PSR/QR Administration • Risk Management • Cape Operations• Planning Center • Contract Technical Requirements • Import/Export Control• Project WBS • Project Gate Products• PM Training/Certification • Technical Facilities• Planning Templates • SFOS Operations Office• Project Lifecycle• PSO Website• Formulation, Implementation and Operations support• ToR POC• Formulation Agreement POC 4
    • The PSO website provides a “one stop shop” for project information 5
    • The 2011 – 2012 Challenge:• 5 launches, 2 Lunar orbit insertions, 1 Vesta orbit insertion, and 1 Temple 1 flyby, with: – Many domestic and international partners – 4 I&T sites – 3 launch sites – > 150 planned significant reviews and events – Required attendance by high-level key staff from NASA, JPL, international and domestic partners Ensure that they are all successful 6
    • Busy Years: 2011 and 2012: 2011 2012 Project J F M A M J J A S O N D J F M A M J J A S O N D Temple 1 Flyby Stardust-NEXT Feb. 14 Launched June Aquarius 10 Launched Aug. 5 JUNO Launched Sept. 8 LOI-A LOI-B GRAIL Dec. 31 Jan. 1 V esta Orbit July 15 V esta Encounter DAWN Launched Nov. 26 Mars Landing Aug. 5Mars Science Lab Launch ~ March 14 7 NuSTAR

    • Don’t forget the rest of the portfolioEJSM ERM(2020) (2017)All the other projects have critical events too 12
    • Everything interacts with everything else Integrate, coordinate, fix errors, resolve conflicts, Everybody knows where they have to be and when 13
    • How it’s done: The Process Top Level Advocacy (Director’s Office) - Institutional Buy-in - High priority for “everybody” to keep up-to-date Many sources of inputsIndividual Key Project Support IntegratedStaff Calendars Office Actions: Community One person Calendar- NASA HQ responsible for: - Updated Weekly- Centers - Discipline- JPL Directorates - “Nag” for Updates- Projects - Quality Control Output Formats For:- Partners - Conflict Resolution - E-Mail (Spreadsheet & - Management PDF)- Facilities Approval - Web Browsers - Center & HQ Calendar tools - Smart Phones, Pads - Wall Posters 14

    • Results:• Enabled complete coverage of 150+ critical events• Coordinated many constantly changing plans• Integrated project and other activities and schedules• Identified and resolved conflicts• Avoided surprises• Coordinated travel• Reduced frustration• Kept everyone informed 21
    • What Was Learned• Top level advocacy is required – Institutional buy-in – Updating calendars is last on the projects to do list• It takes a dedicated person to “nag” for updates and resolve conflicts• Continuous updates and quality control are required – Project’s and key people’s calendars change relentlessly – Key people are unforgiving of wrong information, no matter what the cause• IT support is critical – Integrated databases – User-requested output formats and easy access • Including ability to see charts on smart phones 22
    • Summary• Recognized the need to coordinate many people and events• Developed an organization and process that works – Users ended up liking it and supporting it – We plan to continue using it even when there are not 5 launches in 8 months!• Utilized current information technology infrastructure to meet many diverse needs• Required similar dedication and attention to detail as any flight project Recommend that any organization with periods of intense project activity consider a PSO-like organization 23
