Abstract: The concept for largely autonomous onboard management of the ESA Columbus project elements relies on the automation of operational procedures. Reconfigurable items are commanded in sequence during execution of Automated Procedures that ensure failure management during indeterminate system states. At other times a new form of generalized decision tables will deal with incomplete failure symptoms. Unacceptable operations are avoided by the management of execution of a planned timeline of predefined Actions. The concept supports both unmanned and manned systems.
