Systems Engineering

"Just Right" systems engineering provides the balance between the fast, responsive engineering of today's brightest engineers and the methodical, strictly organized engineering that has put humans in space for the last 55 years.

Zero Point Frontiers understands the balance required to provide fast and effective engineering and system development while maintaining a holistic understanding of system architecture, integration, operation, verification and all the risks associated without getting bogged down in layers of unnecessary bureaucracy.

Zero Point Frontiers has developed a range of tools for the systems engineer.

Our decision tool assists in making complex trade decisions through a three-gate process and pairwise comparison analysis allowing the user to score decision alternatives against each other based upon Figures of Merit derived from Technical Performance Measurements. This decision tool is a defensible and traceable down-selection of multiple decision alternatives. Moon Base Alpha is a holistic life cycle cost analysis tool. Built around complex Cost Estimating Relationships and esoteric fudge factor algorithms, Moon Base Alpha delivers cradle to grave cost estimation for complex projects from the system level through subsystem, component, and subcomponent levels.

Affordability

Affordability Through Technology

We believe affordability is just as important a metric as performance.

Zero Point Frontiers aims to facilitate affordable access to space and identifying and building a minimal viable product is essential to lowering costs and moving quickly to market. Our expert team creates value stream maps (VSM) for small and large companies, and can help transform and streamline your cross-functional activities. We focus on new technology infusions such as Additive Manufacturing as well as state-of-the art interfaces to improve existing products and enhance new design efforts while simultaneously increasing affordability.
