The primary purpose of the SRHEC Strategic Radiation Hardened Electronics Parts Library is to enable the extension of the commonality initiative to all DOD strategic/space programs. The SRHEC Parts Library is designed to manage a DOD-wide strategic electronic part Qualified Parts List (QPL) and requisite supporting data. The SHREC Parts Library will provide users with a list of “known good parts,” streamlining the part selection process and reducing part-related cost and risk. The SRHEC Parts Library does not reduce a user’s/program’s responsibility of ensuring the successful selection, development, qualification, and production of their program’s strategic electronic parts in their application.
The SRHEC Parts Library data set seeks to strike a practical balance between encouraging and supporting commonality and the need to protect program and contractors’ proprietary data and intellectual property, a key aspect of “Smart Commonality.” The SRHEC Part Library is intended to archive a sub-set of data generated during a strategic program electronic parts qualification life-cycle that will kick start the part selection and radiation requirements assessment for a new space/strategic developmental or upgrade program.
The SRHEC Parts Library provides a highly available, highly secure, and high data integrity radiation hardened part management system. The application eliminates: rummaging for part data from external sources; funding development costs for individual program-unique database structures; concerns with data validity and integrity; and individual program IT hosting and ATO provisions.
Collaboration should be simple and standard, with human readable data exchanges the norm. Time should be spent analyzing data, not requiring hunting and collection of random data exchange formats from services, programs, and contractors. To accomplish this the application's architecture provides the ability to host any number of segregated instances - such as at the program level - and feed data to a central repository. Data can be exported as Microsoft Excel files for reporting and/or importing purposes allowing part data import into other instances of the application. Files can optionally be password protected with SHA-256 encryption for added security.
The application's flexible and intuitive design provides a low maintenance solution for managing any part type - radiation-hardened or other. Users can dynamically manage part technologies and attributes, providing the ability to start managing any part type at any time as well as allowing new part attributes to be managed - all within minutes. This is all accomplished through the application's web-based interface with zero developer involvement - no coding or database changes - required.
In early proposal and design phases, data integrity in legacy systems was noted as being poor. Frequent misspellings, duplicate entries, mismatched units of measurement all rampant. To combat these issues the application provides data validation and integrity checks at every input juncture. Part data attributes are validated according to their input type. Numeric values are validated against minimum, maximum, and step values. Text fields are validated against character length constraints, and dropdown values are validated against prepopulated, but fully configurable within the interface, lists of values. Units of measurement are displayed at each input juncture to help ensure standards exist. Data entry is also restricted to defined, but dynamically managed, individuals who provide final validation after automated tools flag out of limit and other potential invalid data.
