OSD / NDIA

  • Oct 03: Systems Engineering Summit

    • Government, industry, and academia participated

    • Brainstormed 38 potential SE action items

      • Developing guides

      • Requiring a systems engineering plan

      • Making policy/regulation/process changes

      • Developing contractual incentives

      • Refining educational/training template requirements

    • Looking at consolidating as many as possible

      • Some already addressed through other efforts

    • Identifying short/long term efforts


Sep guide

SEP Guide

  • USD(AT&L) policy memo, dated 30 Mar 04

    • SE processes – what standards, CMM, etc will be used

    • Technical baseline – how is it developed, managed, and controlled

    • Technical reviews

      • Assess program technical maturity

      • Assess program technical risk

      • Support program decisions

    • Integrate SE into program’s IPTs

      • Describe integration/coordination across IPTs

      • Describe IPT organization

      • Identify SE tools employed

  • CSE developing further guidance for program offices


Saf aq

SAF/AQ

  • Main Objectives

    • Establish program environment founded on robust development principles

      • Promised capabilities delivered on schedule & within budget

      • Scalable/expandable solutions to meet future needs

      • Desensitized to manufacturing & operational variations

    • Key SE elements given principle consideration

      • Solicitation, award, and execution processes

    • Proactive SE leading indicators utilized

      • Mapped to incentive strategies

      • Measurable

      • Minimize surprises

    • Change government and contractor emphasis as needed


Saf aq actions

SAF/AQ Actions

  • Issued Increment 2 Systems Engineering policy memorandum

  • Issued guide for Robust Engineering Methodologies

  • Leveraging Lean Aircraft Initiative tenants/processes that can improve SE application

  • Will develop training and impose minimum qualification requirements for critical positions, e.g., SPD/PM, Chief Engr, IPT Leads

  • Increment 3 Systems Engineering policy will focus on workforce development


Robust engineering guide

Robust Engineering Guide

  • “Robust engineering” guidance

    • Disciplined systems engineering

    • Robust product design

  • Contractual guidance

    • Section M

    • Section L

    • Incentives

  • Technical management leading indicator examples

    • Pro-active measures of SE process effectiveness

    • Flag potential problem areas in time to fix

  • Available on CSE website (http://cse.afit.edu)


Robust engineering guide1

Robust Engineering Guide

  • Robust product designs try to anticipate:

    • Technology advancements

    • Commercial product utilization

    • DoD imposed constraints

    • Obsolescence

    • Future requirements

    • New operational missions and roles

    • Interoperability

    • Network-centric applications

    • etc


Robust engineering guide2

Robust Engineering Guide

  • Factors to consider when assessing contractor technical capabilities and performance

    • Uses disciplined systems engineering processes

      • Requirements analysis and allocation

      • Robust design principles

      • Trade studies/analyses

      • Risk management

      • Configuration management

      • Mfg/QA processes

      • Technical reviews

      • Verification/validation

      • etc

    • Qualified, trained staff assigned to program

    • SE tools effectively and efficiently used

      • M&S

      • CMMI

      • etc

    • Subcontractors employ same processes and principles


Robust engineering guide3

Robust Engineering Guide

  • Six critical systems engineering areas drive most cost/schedule/performance risks

    • Requirements definition

    • Design maturation

    • Subcontractor management

    • Test and evaluation / verification and validation

    • Manufacturing

    • Sustainment


Robust engineering guide4

Robust Engineering Guide

  • Some leading indicator examples

    • Change activities vs time

    • Specifications approved vs planned

    • Subcontracts signed vs planned

    • Engineering manpower vs planned

    • Design documentation vs planned

    • Actual TPMs vs planned

    • Deficiency/trouble reports vs expectations

    • Verification activities approved vs planned

    • Actual schedule vs planned

    • Design review AIs closed vs scheduled

  • Applicable to subcontract management as well
