Referencing current required operational documentation and system performance specifications. Further TPM guidance is provided in the DASD(SE) SEP outline. Energy’s relationship to performance arises from the operational context in which the system is used. Provides insight into system life-cycle resource requirements and impacts on human health and the environment. Decision to produce production-representative units for operational test and evaluation (OT&E) and/or decision that increment of capability is ready for Limited Deployment. Two specific examples of risk context are Environment, Safety and Occupational Health (ESOH) and cybersecurity. The model may include modular open systems approaches as a part of the design methodology supported by an IP strategy, which may be implemented over the life cycle of a product. Although the specific TPMs used to monitor a program are unique to that program, there are 15 categories that are of concern within the Department across all DoD acquisition programs. They use the Programmatic ESOH Evaluation (PESHE) and the NEPA/EO 12114 Compliance Schedule to document the results of the program’s implementation of their ESOH planning. At completion of the SFR, the functional baseline is normally taken under configuration control. Updating production costs as a part of life-cycle cost management. Hence the need for continually updating the SoS analysis and adapting the architecture and updating systems on an ongoing basis. Verification of the system as a whole occurs when integration is complete. Sound Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) planning reduces life-cycle costs, improves maintainability and availability and enhances ESOH compliance. Integration and CH 3–4.3.13. But, the increasing complexity of defense systems makes reaching such targets a constant challenge. Supporting updates to the production schedules. SE planning, as documented in the Systems Engineering Plan (SEP), identifies the most effective and efficient path to deliver a capability, from identifying user needs and concepts through delivery and sustainment. Technical, programmatic and business events can develop into risks, issues or opportunities, each with cost, schedule or performance consequences as shown in Figure 36. These two additional roles for Systems Engineers at the enterprise level are "shared with the organization’s senior line management, and tend to be more entrepreneurial, business-driven, and economic in nature in comparison to the more technical nature of classical systems engineering," (Source: Charlock, P.G., and R.E.

The Program Manager (PM) establishes Government control of the functional baseline at the System Functional Review (SFR) and verifies it through Functional Configuration Audits (FCA) leading up to the system-level FCA or the System Verification Review (SVR). Ensuring technical risk items are identified and analyzed, and appropriate mitigation plans are in place. Affordability – Systems Engineering Trade-Off Analyses, and CH 1–4.2.15.). Accepting system deliveries (i.e., DD-250), as appropriate. The PM, Systems Engineer, software engineer, and contracting officer should be familiar with the restrictions placed on each software item used in the contract or deliverable to the Government. The program depends on the mission module or sensor program to enable it to meet its testing schedule. In CH 3–4., Figure 30 provides a representation of how much effort is typically focused on each of the SE processes throughout the acquisition life cycle. Risk and issue management are closely related and use similar processes. See CH 3–4.1.6. by incorporating SSE process requirements and the system security requirements into the appropriate solicitation documentation. Critical Design Review (CDR) (mandated, establishes initial product baseline, see, System Verification Review/Functional Configuration Audit (SVR/FCA) (See, Updated functional, allocated, and initial product baselines; verified production processes and verification results/ decisions, Updated Programmatic Environment, Safety, and Occupational Health Evaluation (PESHE) and NEPA/E.O. Informed advice to Acquisition Decision Memorandum (ADM) and, when applicable, 10 USC 2366b certification, SEP (updated) (See DoDI 5000.02, Enc 3, sec. Disposal first ensures adequate screening is accomplished to satisfy all valid DoD and other U.S. Government agency needs. Ensuring the SEP includes subject matter experts to participate in each technical review/audit. Manufacturing risks and mitigation plans are in place for building prototypes, Cost objectives have been established and manufacturing cost drivers have been identified; draft Key Performance Parameters have been identified as well as any special tooling, facilities, material handling and skills required, Producibility assessment of the preferred system concept has been completed, and the industrial base capabilities, current state of critical manufacturing processes and potential supply chain sources have all been surveyed, The program should be nearing acceptance of a preliminary system design, An initial manufacturing approach has been developed, Manufacturing processes have been defined and characterized, but there are still significant engineering and/or design changes in the system itself; manufacturing processes that have not been defined or that may change as the design matures should be identified, Preliminary design, producibility assessments, and trade studies of key technologies and components should have been completed, Prototype manufacturing processes and technologies, materials, tooling and test equipment, as well as personnel skills have been demonstrated on systems and/or subsystems in a production-relevant environment, Cost, yield and rate analyses have been performed to assess how prototype data compare with target objectives, and the program has in place appropriate risk reduction to achieve cost requirements or establish a new baseline, which should include design trades, Producibility considerations should have shaped system development plans, and the Industrial Base Capabilities assessment (in the AS for Milestone B) has confirmed the viability of the supplier base, The detailed system design is complete and stable to support low-rate initial production (LRIP), Technologies are mature and proven in a production environment, and manufacturing and quality processes are capable, in control and ready for low-rate production, All materials, manpower, tooling, test equipment, and facilities have been proven on pilot lines and are available to meet the planned low-rate production schedule, Cost and yield and rate analyses are updated with pilot line results, Known producibility risks pose no significant challenges for low-rate production, Supplier qualification testing and first article inspections have been completed, Industrial base capabilities assessment for Milestone C has been completed and shows that the supply chain is adequate to support LRIP, LRIP learning curves that include tested and applied continuous improvements, Meeting all systems engineering and design requirements, Evidence of a stable system design demonstrated through successful test and evaluation, Evidence that materials, parts, manpower, tooling, test equipment and facilities are available to meet planned production rates, Evidence that manufacturing processes are capable, in control, and have achieved planned FRP objectives, Plans are in place for mitigating and monitoring production risks, LRIP cost targets data have been met; learning curves have been analyzed and used to develop the FRP cost model. A modular open systems approach (MOSA) is defined as an acquisition and design strategy consisting of a technical architecture that adopts open standards and supports a modular, loosely coupled and highly cohesive system structure. Such glue code should be handled in as rigorous a manner as any developed software: i.e., kept under configuration management, reviewed, and inspected; updates should be properly regression-tested and progressively integrated/tested. The SEP documents key technical risks, processes, resources, metrics, SE products, organizations, design considerations and completed and scheduled SE activities. Configuration management and regression testing should be used to ensure system coherence. The identification and mitigation of technical risks leading up to reviews and audits facilitates achieving entrance criteria at each of these points (see the DoD Risk, Issue, and Opportunity Management Guide for Defense Acquisition Programs.) A framework for accurate assessment of system performance throughout the life cycle. Attributes of the functional baseline include: Assessed to be achievable within cost and schedule constraints, Documentation of established interfaces between functional segments, Documented performance requirements traced to (draft) Capability Development Document (CDD) requirements, Reflects design considerations and clear linkage in the systems of systems (SoS) context. The program organization with roles and responsibilities, authority, accountability and staffing resources. The product baseline prescribes all necessary physical (form, fit and function) characteristics and selected functional characteristics designated for production acceptance testing and production test requirements. The results of the supportability analysis activities including the servicing, calibration, corrective and preventive maintenance requirements are also summarized in the LCSP. Influence design trades and choices when analyzing and setting contract/production execution targets, Manage all costs throughout the product’s life cycle, Manage the product’s final unit and sustainment cost, Provide incentives for both of the parties (Government and industry) to execute efficiently: Government managers, who seek more value for the warfighter and taxpayer; and industry managers, who develop, build and sustain the systems and provide needed services. Information necessary to understand and evaluate system designs throughout the life cycle. As illustrated in the figure, there are four attributes of a good metric: To achieve an accurate status, TPM reporting should account for uncertainties such as measurement error and the immaturity of the item being measured. The Systems Engineer and ESOH SMEs also provide input to other program documentation such as the: Acquisition Strategy (AS), Test and Evaluation Master Plan (TEMP), Life-Cycle Sustainment Plan (LCSP), system performance specifications, solicitations, contracts and capability documents.
