cubesat telescope manufacturing process engineering mission success

Cubesat Manufacturing Process Engineering

A cubesat project that fails in its mission is the experience you’re trying to avoid.

If Mission Failure is your result, it’ll be a lot harder to get support next time. And it turns out, without the right processes in place, you might learn nothing from the bad experience.

Yet the cubest failure rate over the past decade and a half is over 40%.

That’s after we remove the 6% or so for launch vehicle failure, which is a more conservative figure from a different study than the chart below is from.

Cubesat manufacturing is shifting. What was a “job shop” approach is moving towards a continuous manufacturing operation.

For commercial AND academic satellite manufacturing organizations demanding to be the best with operational excellence, Cold Star Tech gets you to the desired result of Mission Success with long-proven, co-creative processes and systems for:

  • scope definition and protection
  • sponsor engagement
  • project and quality management
  • time and motion studies
  • data collection and analysis
  • structured problem solving rather than “winging it”.

By leveraging our in-field manufacturing and operations improvement experience, we’ll keep you out of serious problems you didn’t know you’d have.
