1 National Defense Industrial Association - Program Management Systems Committee (NDIA PMSC). All rights reserved.. PM Tool Vendor Panel Discussion Bill Altman January 30, 2013

2 National Defense Industrial Association - Program Management Systems Committee (NDIA PMSC). All rights reserved.. How this panel started  Suggested as a topic by PM Outreach Working Group  Initial list of vendors came from list provided by PARCA  Added some vendors from other sources  This list is not inclusive – other vendors exist but including ALL vendors would make this panel unwieldy (we probably would leave someone out)  My apologies for those who felt excluded

3 National Defense Industrial Association - Program Management Systems Committee (NDIA PMSC). All rights reserved.. Candidate questions provided to vendors When DCMA started utilizing cost and schedule metrics a few years ago, we (industry) all generated “home grown” tools to track same data. What is being done to collaborate with the government so that COTS tools for these standard measurements can quickly be developed in advance and distributed so that we can eliminate the need for each company to have to develop their own tools. What do you see on the horizon for tools that will help us with DCMA compliance/surveillance audits? What types of software products/tools are available to track Program change management for cost/schedule/technical (such as power and weight) and once authorized would generate an automated work authorization form? Is there a COTs tool for tracking Program Action Items? Cost and Schedule has always needed to be linked; however, this has always been difficult. Is anything being developed to simplify this process? Will anyone be offering a “suite” of PM tools (for example: cost/schedule/risk management/change management/metrics/dashboards) that all tie and work together? What is shaping the decisions in application development – e.g. features? In light of the economic conditions, there is concern whether new features/release – how are economic conditions impacting? What features do you have to provide useful information for CAMs, PMs, non-Financial Managers? 3
