No ITAR data is contained herein Biography: Bill is a senior study lead and analyst in all Operations Analysis (OA) and System Engineering (SE) technical disciplines. His career in Operations Analysis has focused on developing the skills needed to perform requirements development and validation analyses in an integrated manner with the product- design engineering disciplines, a widely understood industry challenge. He has recognized the ongoing need to define the types of questions that must be answered and decisions that need to be made as programs mature through their life cycle. He is currently leading a team that is responsible for defining the Program Milestone Activities as part of the Systems Engineering contribution to the IDS 10X Initiative. Name: William E. Jennings Key Technical Field: Integrated Requirements And Product Development Phone number: (314) Fax number: (314)

3 Integrated Defense Systems Systems Engineering Program Milestone Activities Define Products & Tasks Across Program Life Cycle Process Inputs Customer Inputs –Desired Capabilities/Needs –Constraints Technology Base SE Activities Across Life Cycle Process Outputs Fielded Designs Executable CONOPs Evolving Capabilities –User Feedback –Maturing Technologies Understand Capability Needs Capture Maturing Requirements Hypothesize Solution Concepts & CONOPs Define How To Evaluate Solution Concepts Evaluate Solution Concepts Create Conceptual, Preliminary and Critical Designs New DoD Guidance: Emphasizes Prototypes Competition Through Milestone B Timeframe – Now Includes A Preliminary Design Review-1

Integrated Defense Systems Engineering Systems Engineering PMA Define How To Apply BPIs/BPGs In An Integrated Approach Answers to Questions & Decisions Gate (Stage) Questions to be answered & Decisions to be made BPIs Are Used in Combinations Activity threads appear disconnected from perspective of BPIs BPI X BPI YBPI Z

5 Integrated Defense Systems Systems Engineering What is PMA Technology? Tool for integrated planning for how to get through each formal life cycle phase successfully –Defines the technical content for the life cycle phase (e.g. SRR phase) in the IMP & IMS –Standardizes entry/exit criteria, products that satisfy them, tasks that must be performed A logical workflow of tasks and products throughout each phase Establishes formal definitions of products and data repositories –Defines multiple levels of detail needed across life cycle to mechanize the SE V New DoD Guidance

6 Integrated Defense Systems Systems Engineering PMAs Strategy and Approach Formal GuidanceQuestion-based Construct By Stage IMP Accomplishment Criteria Objectives by stage Entry/exit criteria Process descriptions Apply formal guidance to identify questions Define information needed to meet objectives Identify tasks & data content Align engr. discipline processes & tools Apply questions to define ACs by stage Define IPT ownership Capture closure criteria & exit product IMS Tasks By IPT Tasks & data content definition Resource alignment (skills, tools, & funding) Critical path & process logical flow

7 Integrated Defense Systems Systems Engineering Applies Defense Acquisition Guidebook Knowledge-based Approach Why DAG? –Its very difficult to argue with the questions –Gets to the intellectual content of what should be done –Explicitly focuses attention on answering questions vice just do work DAG questions apply to the government program office Boeing must help the DoD customer answer the questions Boeings Challenge: –Address the ambiguity in the questions –Define specific tasks to address the exit criteria –Tailoring tasks as required for specific programs –Provide individual programs with SME guidance for how to answer the questions and provide documented justification

8 Integrated Defense Systems Systems Engineering What is Unique About The PMA Approach? Defines how to address development activities that are about discovery (e.g., requirements development, functional analysis, trade studies, validation) –Captures an approach that is able to address blind alleys, iterations, and major decision points that are inherent in the discovery process –Planning around processes that are followed from beginning to end works well Discovery and decision making are about answering questions –It is natural to frame the planning and execution process in question framework Information gathering -- Have we collected the right information in preparation for making a decision? Decision making -- Given the alternatives and the available information, which alternative should be selected? Responds to the need for a different paradigm for planning and executing –Not a stove-piped process driven activity The questions framework creates a logical workflow of integrated tasks and products throughout each phase

10 Integrated Defense Systems Systems Engineering Systems Requirements Review-Based Questions

11 Integrated Defense Systems Systems Engineering Logic Flow From Questions To Tasks: Capability Needs Does the program have documented capability needs at the system level (Capability Description Document or equivalent)? –Does the program have documented capability needs at the system level? 1. Identify the inputs that may have capability needs 2. Search the inputs for capability needs 3. Add the capability needs to a consolidated list 4. Identify capabilities being deferred as related to spiral development 5. Produce architecture operational capabilities and concepts view –Have these capability needs been reviewed for understanding by the program? –Have areas of potential misunderstanding or lack of clarity been resolved for consensus within the program and with the customer? Establishing The Foundation The Tasks Approach is repeated for mission scenarios & constraints

12 Integrated Defense Systems Systems Engineering Validation Of PMA Approach On Multiple Programs

13 Integrated Defense Systems Systems Engineering Measures for Success Long Term: –Generating the necessary information at the right time to be more competitive –Proactively addressing problems earlier –More successful proposals –Reduction in traveled work and rework on programs –Reduction in Action Items from major program milestones/reviews –Improvement in CPI/SPI –Improvement in Award Fees Near Term: –Acceptance by internal Boeing Customer Community (programs) –Acceptance/endorsement by external Boeing Customer Community (e.g., NAVAIR) –PMA approach leads to improved Program execution and successful entrance/exit of major program milestone/reviews

14 Integrated Defense Systems Systems Engineering Capabilities Available In CY2009 System-level Program Milestone Activity Threads for ITR, ASR, SRR, SFR, PDR, and CDR LTD Training Module –Overview of the contents and breadth of application of this approach across IDS –Top level tutorial on how to use the Program Milestone Activities (PMA) Planning approach –Detailed guidance for implementation on a program Updated BPG "Integrated Master Plan & Schedule –Work Product Definitions for each major program milestone/review BPG Enhancement & Development to institutionalize PMA approach –Additions to BPG on SEMP Method –Creation of BPGs for each PMA thread Define the integrated tool environment needed to capture engineering technical PMA work-product data artifacts and final products
