Paper Abstract

Robotic capabilities needed for future space exploration mission tasks must be assessed as part of resource-demand balancing and planning. The same statement can be made for other types of resources; and, in fact, the approach presented in this paper applies to those resources as well. The approach, which has been developed over the past 4 years, is based upon integration involving the following methodological components: (1) comprehensive representative schemata for processes, objects, and states of affairs; (2) several types of analysis for processes (as opposed to robotic objects per se); (3) factor space analyses to relate requirements to capacities to design concepts to designs; and (4) evolved practices in the arenas of trade studies and decision aids. The preliminary results of applying the approach are presented.
