21. Design Analyses Plan
The Design Analyses Plan encompasses Stress/Strength, Worst-Case Tolerance,
Sneak Circuit, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis/Failure Modes, Effects, and
Criticality Analysis (FMEA/FMECA), thermal, logistics, system safety, and
ID/T. Other analyses, such as Fault Tree and mass properties, are performed as
needed. All results are documented and maintained throughout the programís
life. The results are checked against the programís Design Manual criteria to
ensure compliance with program requirements. Analyses are scheduled and
performed to support the design effort and agenda of design reviews.
Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Engineering (CAD/CAE) tools are used to
perform analyses whenever possible. Design updates are documented using
CAD/CAE when possible.
