NASA Parts Selection List
The NASA EEE Parts Selection List (NPSL) has been developed as a "parts selection tool" specifically geared toward design and parts engineering organizations internal to NASA and to universities and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that do not have the resources for a dedicated quality and reliability infrastructure in parts engineering. The NPSL is a listing of electrical, electronic, and electromechanical (EEE) part types and advanced packaging technologies such as Multi-Chip Modules (MCM) which are produced under various government and/or industry quality systems.
Since NASA's Standard
EEE Parts List, MIL-STD-975, was cancelled without replacement on May
3, 1998, the NPSL provides a viable alternative for parts selection. However,
there are some key differences in the philosophy of these two documents
which users must be aware of:
OEMs that have an established parts engineering infrastructure may elect to use the NPSL to augment their own existing part selection lists. The NPSL may be chosen, in part or in its entirety, to be a subset of a Project Approved Parts List (PAPL) or equivalent. The decision to invoke the NPSL shall be made by the project based on the parts management and control requirements for that mission. The NPSL itself, should not be imposed as a contractual requirement, but the associated part listings may be established as approved selections by the project.
