  2. 2. Introduction to the NASA Engineering Network NEN PM Challenge 2007 2
  3. 3. Introduction to the NASA Engineering Network• …fact is, there is a lot of perspiration involved in the hard work of NASA Engineering NEN PM Challenge 2007 3
  4. 4. Introduction to the NASA Engineering Network• Every engineer needs access to all NASA engineering knowledge Captures Knowledge Facilitates Creation of Organizes and Knowledge Disseminates Knowledge Enables Reuse of Knowledge NEN PM Challenge 2007 4
  5. 5. Introduction to the NASA Engineering Network • The Office of the Chief Engineer created the NASA Engineering Network to be a robust, flexible knowledge management system that • networks users to NASA’s vast knowledge resources, both documented and tacit • provides a multi-purpose community management tool, task management tool, and lessons learned tool • allows for managing and sharing of discipline standards, requirements and processes with a minimum of labor • NEN integrates a content management system, portal, search engine, and engineering community management system in support of engineering discipline communities and NASA lessons learned NEN PM Challenge 2007 5
  6. 6. Key Knowledge Resource – NASA Lessons Learned • 1,602 fully vetted Lessons Learned going back to 1972 • Managed by Lessons Learned Steering Committee with representation from all 10 NASA Centers • Pro: represents NASA’s highest validity of reusable knowledge • Con: not a complete body of NASA knowledge NEN PM Challenge 2007 6
  7. 7. Key Knowledge Resource -- Engineering Databases• NASA has a wealth of data management systems, External Audiences General Public NASA NASA NASA problem reporting and ContractorsPartners Employees Scientists StudentsEducators & Researchers Kids & Teachers & Industry Press & Media corrective action systems, Content Delivery1 Accessibility2Communications3 www.nasa.gov document management Marsrover Spaceflight Caching Download Site X StreamingSearch Web Managed Portal Site Y systems, technical report Network Services www.nasa.gov Services Search & ISN Public Engine Portal App’sApplications Subscriptions Collaboration Portlet Mgmt Management Standard Services Pod casting On Demand Aggregation Vignette Managed Applications Collections & Contacts Messaging Marsrover Captioning Java Apps Spidering Shopping Tailoring Profiling Forums Custom Access Instant systems Closed & Polls Images Spaceflight Web Other File & Apps Apps Cart Live Security Site X Privacy Site Y Hosting• Pro: extensive set of NASA Information & Publishing Services4 Management Services5 knowledge Enterprise Reporting & SMS Portal CMS Portal System Business• Con: validity issues, context Syndication Mgmt Content Management System Workflow Management Tools Event, Change Log Analysis Performance Management RDF & Other Notification Availability Repository Monitoring Publishing Publishing Bandwidth Publishing Outbound Authoring Business API & GUI Workflow Metadata Security, Reports Inbound Process Reports Agents, Privacy issues, seemingly never- Model HTML ending number of db’s Security Operations NASA NASA Mgmt. and NASA Mgmt. & Support Centers Support Offices Missions Management & Internal Customers NEN PM Challenge 2007 7
  8. 8. Key Knowledge Resource – Subject Matter Experts • NASA employs over 46,000 civil servant and contractor engineers representing some of the nation’s best and most educated intellectual resources • Pro: our best knowledge resource • Con: not easily discovered, have something better to do than sit around waiting for your questions NEN PM Challenge 2007 8
  9. 9. Industry Benchmarking• Formal benchmarking meetings conducted with the following organizations have led to NEN architecture as recognized best practice• In addition, meta-analysis of published case studies and informal benchmarking also contributed to key architectural decisions and choices The Aerospace Corporation Department of Commerce US Army Rand Corporation MITRE EPRI Lockheed Martin Space Systems JHU/Applied Physics Lab Raytheon Department of Homeland Security Nuclear Regulatory Commission Department of Energy Intel Procter and Gamble Boeing Canoga Park Rolls Royce Aerospace Harvard University Ball Aerospace Learning Innovations Laboratory Australian Taxation Office NEN PM Challenge 2007 9
