This standard establishes the requirements for the preparation, implementation, and operation of a parts, materials, and processes control program for use during the design, development, and production of space and launch vehicles. The implementation of these requirements is intended to:
a. Assure integrated management of the selection, application, procurement, control, and standardization of parts, materials, and processes (PMP).
b. Improve the reliability of program PMP to reduce PMP failures at all levels of integration, assembly, and test.
c. Reduce program life cycle costs.
d. Improve procurement and test of small quantities of piece parts and materials that meet system requirements.
