Analysis of Program Failure
  • Specific Causes of Program Failure (Systemic Root Cause Analysis findings)
sse strategic direction
SSE Strategic Direction
  • Cut cycle time to field capability by embedding systems engineering engagement with requirements and early phase acquisition
  • Change engineering culture, both vertically and horizontally, across Government and industry
    • Implement Human Capital Strategy to assure DoD workforce competency
  • Advance Engineering State-of-Practice through research transition
  • Implement comprehensive solution for system assurance/program protection/cyber security

SSE FY08/09 Thrust Areas
  • Systemic Root Cause Analysis - the collection and analysis of systemic program performance issues, determination of root causes, and development of corrective action
  • System Assurance - the reduction of vulnerability to malicious intent in our systems, considering the full spectrum security of information, technology and hardware/software components
  • Software Engineering Competency - the focus on software engineering as a critical element of complex systems acquisition, and strategic initiatives to ensure future Defense software demands can be met by government and industry
  • Systems of Systems -augmenting acquisition and engineering practices to better plan, develop, and manage interdependent systems of systems
  • Enhanced Systems Engineering - the institution of technical management and engineering practices prior to program initiation (MS B) in order to enable risk informed, balanced acquisition and budgeting decisions

SSE FY08/09 Thrust Areas (cont’d)
  • Revitalizing Developmental Test & Evaluation – comprehensive strategy for early T&E involvement and integrated testing to manage technical risks across the acquisition system, sustaining systems and capabilities, and rebuilding government T&E expertise.
  • System Engineering Research UARC – establishment of a system engineering research program
  • Energy – reducing DoD energy consumption across our operations, to include force development, deployment, and support
  • Reliability – ensuring rigor, discipline and an integrated approach in systems engineering practices and T&E strategies for improving the reliability of systems
  • Safety – integrating safety process advances into Department acquisition policies
a new approach
A New Approach?
  • Incremental Commitment Model
    • Studies indicate possible relevance of ICM for DoD use
    • SSE commissioned development of a Guidebook to evaluate the model within the constraints of the DoD acquisition framework
    • To be vetted by the DoD and industry engineering community
  • Is the ICM an opportunity to:
    • Migrate from the current “Rush to MS B”?
    • Implement risk-reduction approach to acquisition?
    • Foster better integration of SE and SW?
improve knowledge through technical foundation
Improve Knowledge through Technical Foundation

Systems Engineering is effective when it informs,

and is informed by, other Acquisition process owners
