Critical success factors, best practices, and challenges Future Work Exploring Space, Enhancing Life 2 3. System for Innovation The Space Life Sciences Directorates(SLSD) system for innovation involves twokey components: 1) an evidence-based risk management system that continuously evaluates all human system risks across current and future operations, and identifies gaps in the research, technology, operations and service portfolios, and 2) a strategic system to drive innovation through strategic alliances and collaboration to optimize SLSD research, technology, operations, and service portfolios. SLSDs change process was stimulated by internaland external changes to the environmentExploring Space, Enhancing Life3 4. Change Drivers 2001, Institute of Medicine Safe Passagepublished 2003, CAIB Report issued 2004, Vision for Space Exploration released 2005, Exploration Systems Architecture Study 2005, Institute of Medicine Report regarding theBioastronautics Roadmap 2006 NASA Strategic Plan2/19/2010Exploring Space, Enhancing Life 4 5. Institute of Medicine Recommendations From Safe Passage: Astronaut Care for Exploration Missions Develop and use an occupational health model for the collection and analysis of astronaut health data, giving priority to the creation and maintenance of a safe work environmentExploring Space, Enhancing Life5 6. CAIB Report Recommendations Establish an independent TechnicalAuthority, with responsibilities that include: Develop and maintain technical standards Sole waiver-granting authority for all technical standards Conduct integrated hazard analyses Review and approve research deliverablesExploring Space, Enhancing Life6 7.

Standards to Deliverables Process Standards to deliverables first developed 2005-2006: first response to environmental changes Standards - implement health and medical policy The first step in risk mitigation is establishing standards to define an acceptable level of risk Standards are based on the best available information and evaluated against the space flight environment Operational experience is assessed to inform the standards Research projects are defined to fill the gaps in knowledge Deliverables Desirable solutions to research and/or technology questions that mitigate human system risksExploring Space, Enhancing Life9 10.

Risk Management:An Evidence Based Approach A risk management system was needed to implementthe standard to deliverables process A master list of 90 human system risks was identified A rigorous evidence-based system to mitigate the approximately 90 human system risks for space is tracked and monitored through a Risk Mitigation Analysis Tool (RMAT) A flight activities control board and human system risk board manage all standards development, risks, and mitigation approaches to the 90 human system risks When solution to mitigate risks are not readily available from the research and technology portfolios, gaps are identified that must be closed for successful risk mitigation Gaps are evaluated for closure through innovative, collaborative approaches Exploring Space, Enhancing Life 11 12. Risk Management:An Evidence Based Approach Need to regularly collect/evaluate the accumulateddata and evidence from space flight operations andspace and ground-based research Use evidence base to make recommendations tocreate/alter health and medical human systemstandards and/or requirements The Human Research Program discipline reviewsbegan the review of the best available evidence in2006-2007 Evidence review is now weekly in the Human SystemRisk Board (HSRB began April 2008)Exploring Space, Enhancing Life12 13.

Risk Mitigation Analysis Tool (RMAT) Collects the current status of work in developing andaddressing compliance with standards for identified risksand/or risk factors Assesses the need for mitigation to stay within the standardfor a particular mission Facilitates documentation and base lining of the riskmanagement approach - allows us to assess gaps andprovide traceability of our work The tool flows from a standard to a deliverable for aparticular mission Progress is assessed at the Human System Risk Board Exploring Space, Enhancing Life 15 16.
