Summit on the Role of Test & Evaluation in the Systems Engineering Process
August 17-18, 2004
Hyatt Regency Crystal City, Arlington, VA
| Presentations |
Over the past decade the importance of systems engineering on Department of Defense programs has been applied in a manner that has often resulted in less than optimum program performance. Having realized the highly negative effect of this lack of emphasis on Systems Engineering, the Department and the Services are now working hard to reverse this trend by actions on multiple fronts, such as the new OSD Policy requiring a Systems Engineering Plan on all DoD programs [Hon. Michael Wynne, OUSD(AT&L), 20 February 2004], the Interim Guidance from OUSD(AT&L) Defense Systems (Dr Glenn Lamartin, 30 March 2004), the USAF Center for Systems Engineering (establish early 2003), and the USAF Systems Engineering Incentivization Memo (Dr Marvin Sambur, 13 January 2004), the National Security Space (NSS) Acquisition Policy 03-01 (Hon Peter B Teets, 6 Oct 2003).
One critical ingredient in the systems engineering process, especially during the initial program planning, is involvement by the Test & Evaluation community. Effective involvement by members of this community during the early phases of a program can be a critical program success factor.
