Development of the Methodology for Assessing the “Production Quality Factor” for the Failure Rate Model of Artificial Earth Satellites Electronic Means
This paper presents the methodology for assessing the «production quality factor» for the failure rate model of electronic means (EM) of artificial earth satellites (AES) in the design. The use of a quality management system (QMS) and activities regulated by regulatory and technical documentation (RTD) for the creation, production and operation is a distinctive feature of the proposed methodology. Implementation consists in applying an ontological approach to the formation of the questionnaire for subsequent expert evaluation for external and internal audits. The methodology allows to timely identify the advantages and disadvantages of a specific event, approved by the dependability program and specified in a certain section of the RTD, including QMS. The methodology let it possible to increase the effectiveness of the numerical evaluation when the target level of dependability indicators is achieved, also, to enhance the of the AES EM system and relieves the manufacturing organization from the procedure for additional tests. It is planned to use the developed methodology at the enterprises of the rocket and space industry and in private non-state manufacturing companies of the small AES.
