Michael Chandler of our Houston team supports NASA's Exploration Systems Development. He leads the Integrated Configuration Management working group with membership from NASA's rocket, crew vehicle, and ground systems programs. With thousands of documents, drawings, and reports required to bring our nation's next space vehicle online, the process can be overwhelming. From the beginning, Michael been instrumental in organizing, developing, and advancing the process of reviewing and approving the products needed to design, build, and test these systems.
On Monday, January 9th, Michael was presented the Cross Program Integration Team (CPIT) Award for his leadership in setting up a new detailed product governance structure to help streamline approvals as NASA moves closer to the launch of the nation's newest rocket. He was presented with a framed print of the future launch of the Space Launch System (SLS) currently scheduled for the end of 2018.
Michael exemplifies the type of leader our clients have come to expect from our company. His dedication to our client's success has helped us grow our team at NASA's Johnson Space Center over the past 18 months. We are grateful for his efforts and leadership example.
Michael's achievements have been previously recognized with an award from Johnson Space Center back in September of 2015.
Michael's award states:
“For exemplary leadership and daily integration across CPIT, resulting in consistent configuration management implementation and for providing expertise in the development of an overall Governance structure including the development, review, and approval of new control board charters.
Michael provides leadership in the resolution of the myriad of issues and he does so in a straightforward and logical manner. The Cross Program Integration Team Leadership is highly appreciative of Michael’s dedication and is pleased to recognize him with this honor.”
