Early program-validation activities assist in the production of validated Concept of Operations/Operational Mode Summary/Mission Profile (CONOPS/OMS/MP), system performance specifications, use cases, functional and physical system architectures and test cases. The Systems Engineer is responsible for planning and overseeing all technical activity within the program office and for managing stakeholder expectations. ), Life-Cycle Sustainment Plan (LCSP) (updated) (See CH 4–3.2. Program structuring should start with a deep understanding of the nature of the capability intended to be acquired and the effort needed to realize that capability. The SSRA is used within the DoD as the basis for assessing the feasibility of building and fielding equipment that operate within assigned frequency bands and identifying potential de-confliction situations. Conversely, it could also result in more part numbers (equivalents) being introduced into supply, thus increasing the likelihood of counterfeit intrusion. For the end-item system, it is the process to install and deploy the system to the user in the operational environment. This includes the coordination of the program’s integrated product teams (IPTs) and their products, resources, staffing, management metrics and integration mechanisms. PMs identify and document CSIs during design and development to influence critical downstream processes, such as initial provisioning, supply support and manufacturing planning to ensure adequate management of CSIs throughout a system’s Operations and Support (O&S) phase. Programs should consider the potential availability of suitable replacement and/or alternative items throughout the longer, military life cycle, and should monitor the commercial marketplace through market research activities and ongoing alignment of business and technical processes. Is structured to protect and preserve system functions or resources, e.g., through segmentation, separation, isolation or partitioning. Requirements Management Process), Metrics should include the number of risks open over time or an aggregate of risk exposure (the potential impact to the performance, cost and schedule). Chapter 3 LIFE-CYCLE IMPACT ASSESSMENT Within LCA, the LCI is a well-established methodology; however, LCIA methods are less well-defined and continue to evolve (Barnthouse et al., 1997; Fava et al., 1993). Early, frequent engagement with industry is especially important for complex, high-risk procurements, including (but not limited to) those for large information technology (IT) projects. The primary benefits of using COTS components in system design are to: However, regardless of the extent to which a system is made up of commercial items, the Program Manager (PM) and Systems Engineer still develop, integrate, test, evaluate, deliver, sustain and manage the overall system. When a SoS is recognized as a "directed," "acknowledged," or "collaborative" SoS, SE is applied across the constituent systems and is tailored to the characteristics and context of the SoS. (The LCSP outline calls out specific supportability related phase and milestone expectations.). Design specifications are aligned with manufacturing process capabilities. Progressive deployment of an integration-intensive system provides infrastructure and services and higher-level capabilities as each release is validated and verified. Maintain oversight of the system (software and hardware) development processes, system testing, documentation updates and tracking of the system development efforts. If the program’s Acquisition Strategy (AS) includes competing contractual efforts, an SFR should be held with each participating developer. Should the issue be ignored or controlled? stability). Recommendation that the preferred materiel solution can affordably meet user needs with acceptable risk. Engineering Resources, the PM focuses on the following MSA activities, which rely on and support SE efforts: In addition to the general roles and responsibilities described in CH 3–2.5. Inputs to the technical planning process vary over time as the program evolves and the system matures.
