IETM Verification Lessons Learned

  • Why Verification is needed?

    • The configuration sensitivity and enhanced capabilities of a Type II IETM vice traditional paper technical manuals introduces new potential data errors:

      • Task Linking Errors (referential issues)

      • Missing/Incorrect Configuration sensitivities

      • Graphics associations

      • Step Sequencing

    • Increased performance expectations from the Fleet of the IETM raises the quality bar

      • Every data error is taken as proof that IETMs are worse then paper

    • Provides an opportunity to assess the Integrated IETM product (data, presentation system, business rules, and software infrastructure)

IETM Verification Lessons Learned

  • Performing a Type II IETM Verification

    • Government must take the responsibility for performing an independent verification of the IETM product

      • Verification team should include IETM Author representation in an integrated/supporting role

    • Verification plan should be modeled after Systems Engineering based Test Plans and not after the traditional paper Verification plans

      • Formal system documentation should be developed and utilized throughout project life-cycle

      • Detailed formal MOAs, MOUs, Contracts/SOWs, and other interagency documents should be negotiated and signed between all involved team elements and the government team lead

    • Verifiers need significant personal experience with maintenance practices on the platform(s) being supported

      • Or at a minimum with the closest fit existing platforms were direct experience is not achievable (previous versions, similar platforms)

IETM Verification Lessons Learned

  • Performing a Type II IETM Verification

    • All elements of the Verification Team should receive robust training in the process and use of the IETM product to be verified

      • Critical to differentiating between system, data, and user errors

    • Fleet involvement from an operational and/or test squadron is a significant enabler

      • Creates a sense of product ownership by Fleet community

      • Provides pre-implementation opportunity to assess Fleet interaction with IETM product

      • Verifies IETM data and software functionality in ‘real-world’ environment

    • Anomalies should be addressed in parallel to the IETM Verification effort

      • Ensures IETM Authoring community has access to verifier

      • Aids in identification of systemic, training, software, and other errors not typically evaluated in the context of paper verifications

      • Allows taking full advantage of the decreased time to revise an IETM product vice paper
