dc.description.abstract The Mission Design and Navigation Software Group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) maintains mission critical software systems. We have good empirical data and models for maintenance demand—when defects will occur, how many and how severe they will be, and how much effort is needed to address them. However, determining the level of staffing needed to address maintenance issues is an ongoing challenge and is often done ad-hoc. There are two common strategies are (1) reactive – add/remove staff as needed to respond to maintenance issues, and (2) capacitive – retain a given staff size to address issues as they occur, proactively address issues and prevent defects. en_US
