NASA’s International Space Station is a unique off-world research laboratory where out of this world science is conducted every day. It is also a remote outpost in space that requires reliable hardware and software, reliable maintenance and logistics planning, and well-trained crews, operators, and engineers to work through contingencies.
So, what does NASA have to do with your own maintenance and reliability challenges? More than you might think.
The methods used by the leadership laboratory that is Mission Control for managing this unique spacecraft can be directly mapped to management of your operations and assets. This even includes using a toothbrush to save a spacewalk.
