Unmanned Space Project Management: Surveyor and Lunar Orbiter

Access to NASA eBook added to PM World Library

20 September 2015 – New in the Library – A new section has been added to the PM World Library to provide access to free project management eBooks available on the internet. One of the first such resources is titled Unmanned Space Project Management: Surveyor and Lunar Orbiter, by Erasmus H. Kloman and published by NASA in the United States.

According to the foreword: “The space program is, by nature, an activity that encompasses a number of discrete projects, each aimed toward achieving specific objectives within a finite period. Like many other advanced-technology enterprises, NASA has relied heavily on the techniques of organizing manpower and physical resources into project structures to achieve goals involving specified cost, schedule, and performance requirements… The following seeks to draw some lessons from the experience gained in two NASA projects… For readers familiar with aerospace programs, the study may provide a new look at familiar ground. For those from other fields, it may offer a bridge by which management experience from two aerospace projects can pass to their areas of specialization.”
