  NASA Standards Library Frequently Asked Questions

Engineering Standards Office


otterThe JPL Engineering Standards Office assists in fulfilling the JPL Chief Engineer’s role in providing technical leadership across the Lab. Standards are used— both for in-house design/development and in review of contractor proposals— to provide NASA programs and projects with uniform engineering and technical requirements. Engineering standards capture lessons learned and new technology, provide a common base for interoperability, and facilitate engineering excellence.                 




The JPL Engineering Standards Office is managed by David Oberhettinger within the Office of the Chief Engineer and performs the following functions:

  • specifications, and official guidance documents are available to the JPL line and project organizations.
  • projects for documenting in the NASA Engineering Network as "lessons learned." Assure that lessons learned are disseminated and infused into JPL engineering documentation and training.
  • standards that NASA assigns to JPL for development.
  • adopted consensus standards products to make them acceptable for NASA application.
  • in preparation of a NASA standard, participate in its development assuring its consistency with established JPL engineering processes and suitability to JPL flight projects. Provide formal EMB approval of final NASA standards products on behalf of JPL.
  • NASA standards or for the adoption of voluntary consensus standards.
  • Standards Working Group) in identifying NASA-preferred and obsolete standards, providing NASA-wide access to NASA/industry/government standards products, setting NASA standards policy, participating in national and international standards-developing bodies and industry working groups, etc.
  • NASA Office of the Chief Engineer.
