Launching spacecraft and satellites into orbit are highly complicated endeavors and like many large organizations, the company was struggling to provide visibility, manage changes to requirements, and meet aggressive schedules.
In 2010, SpaceX selected Jama Connect to help its team develop new ways of working to simplify requirements management, improve visibility and customer communication, and create an efficient, paperless product delivery process.
SpaceX saw significant improvements to its requirements management process with Jama Connect, including:
- Reducing meeting times, simplifying cumbersome specification docs, and improving overall communication to ensure all requirements were accounted for accurately
- Better traceability from requirements to derived requirements to verification events
- Improved customer relations with shared project visibility and enhanced communications
