Position Summary and Responsibilities

The Payload Planning Manager (PPM) builds the payload timelines for an increment (approximately, a six-month period) on the International Space Station. The PPM is assigned to a specific increment, and works both pre-increment and real-time payload planning.


The PPM builds payload planning products for an increment including the On-orbit Operations Summary (OOS), Planning Ground rules and Constraints (Gr&C), the Weekly Look-ahead Plan (WLP), and the Short Term Plan (STP).  The PPM receives planning models from the Payload Activity Requirements Coordinator (PARC) and utilizes them to build a high level NASA payload OOS for the entire six-month increment.  The PPM collaborates with their NASA JSC, European Space Agency (ESA) and Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) planning counterparts to build the integrated United States Operating Segment (USOS) OOS.  The PPM also develops the NASA payload portion of the Gr&C document, and integrates this with payload Gr&C inputs from ESA and JAXA to produce the USOS Payload Gr&C input.  During the increment, the PPM mans the PPM console, producing the detailed USOS Payload Weekly Look-Ahead Plan (WLP) for each week of the increment and then refining it during daily Short Term Plan (STP) development.  In each case, the PPM collaborates with JSC, ESA and JAXA.


The PPM position requires expertise in the Operations Planning Timeline Integration System (OPTIMIS) software suite. The PPM also utilizes Microsoft Excel and Word extensively to build planning products.  The PPM uses the Payload Information Management System (PIMS) software to review and implement Operations Change Requests for impacts to increment planning products. The PPM requires a basic understanding of ISS resources such as power, data, and video.  The PPM must also possess logic skills to assemble a payload plan that meets all science requirements and planning constraints and to quickly rework the plan in response to anomalies and changing requirements.  The PPM position requires 8 x 5 console staffing for the assigned 6-month increment.  The PPM will be required to complete Core Individual Training Plan (ITP) and PPM ITP before becoming certified.


Education and Experience:


The desired knowledge base for this job includes a Bachelor of Science in Engineering or Science with four plus years of experience.  


Strongly Preferred:


Experience in payload operations integration. Excellent communication skills are very important.
