The activities of Assembly, Integration and Testing of an artificial satellite corresponds to a set of procedures and the execution of the logically correlated events sequence to obtain a high degree of confidence of satellite operation. The Assembly, Integration and Testing (AIT) activities are performed to ensure that all specified design and performance parameters were reached. Within this context, all the environmental conditions in which the satellite will be asked for, from its launch until its operation in orbit, are simulated. The study presented herein is part of a Ph.D. research, with the purpose of developing a conceptual framework and a methodology for analysis of the AIT organization readiness level to integrate a particular satellite in order to satisfy all stakeholders' requirements (AIT stakeholders) valuing quality, reliability, safety and compliance of performance parameters usually adopted by the AIT organization.
