Vignette Helps NASA Make Giant Leap To The Moon And Beyond

Ares 1 - part of NASA's constellation program.

Vignette's Next-Generation Web solutions are helping NASA engineers and scientists connect and share information online, as the federal agency designs its next generation of space vehicles for the Constellation Program. The Constellation Program is responsible for developing crew exploration and launch vehicles that will send humans back to the moon and then to Mars.

NASA is leveraging Vignette to provide the communication and collaboration workflow for its Review Item Discrepancy (RID) process. RID is the process by which thousands of users inside NASA identify and track technical issues and actions and map the solutions back to a set of requirements.

NASA is using the revised requirements documents as the baseline for early designs on spacecrafts, launch vehicles, and life support systems, programs, and processes.

"For nearly half a century, NASA has both inspired and educated Americans about space exploration, and the Constellation Program marks the next great step in scientific discovery," said Dr. Conleth O'Connell, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Vignette.

"Vignette enables NASA to connect with all of its constituents, whether they are working on the latest rocket launch or learning about the solar system in an elementary school classroom."
