All designs are analysed before manufacture commences to ensure the proposed equipment will function in the environment it is to be operated in and will survive the harsh conditions found during the launch phase of space equipment. 

This is achieved with thermal analysis to predict the expected heat flows from on-board electrical equipment along with heat sources in the operating environment.

Finite element analysis is employed to ensure the proposed structures are strong enough for the task but not unnecessarily heavy in their construction.
