Process Asset Library

The Process Asset Library (PAL) is an Intelligent Systems Division repository of documents and tools that can be made available to project teams to facilitate project performance and adherence to agency software requirements and standards. This repository is constantly being updated, both as new documents and tools become available, and as a result of direct user feedback.

Documentation Exemplars

The Software Management Office (SMO) can assist Intelligent Systems Division personnel with obtaining the appropriate PAL exemplars and project support documentation relevant to the software classification, size, and scope of their project. SMO can also help in implementing NASA software engineering and quality assurance procedural requirements, or any part of the software lifecycle that might be needed.

The PAL contains project documentation for all classes of software, including:

  • Software development plans
  • Configuration management plans
  • Software assurance plans
  • Requirements specifications
  • Test plans and procedures
  • Software cost estimations
  • Project plans

Division Software Engineering Process & Reference Materials

The SMO wiki contains links to applicable process documents and helpful reference materials for Division software projects. This includes links to Division-level resources to help guide and document project compliance with NASA Procedural Requirements (NPRs) and Ames Procedural Requirements (APRs). In addition, the wiki page contains instructions for applying for software releases and for publishing NASA Scientific and Technical Information (STI) series reports, such as NASA Technical Memoranda (TM), as well as links to Software Classification and Software Safety Classification tools and documentation. For more information about the material provided in these links, please contact Bob Duffy or Greg Orzech.
