Paper Abstract

The Gemini 8-m Telescopes Project presents a unique managerial challenge in that not only the detailed design and fabrication of the mechanical subassemblies will be contracted out to the international community but also the software and control systems. The project has developed a model for how to do distributed design and how to manage this effort. The author presents lessons learned in the endeavor and also what he would do differently the next time.
