1 1 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388 Mission Engineering TM - a transformational business analysis and system engineering approach Challenge the Dominant Paradigm

2 2 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388 Mission Engineering (ME) Defined ME is an advanced requirements gathering and analysis method ME is focused on capturing & translating the intent of the customers mission needs into implementable system/software/data requirements ME reduces interpretation of textual requirements by using visually robust products as the central communication device ME provides notational linkage of the implementable requirements to the originating customer mission needs ME is an engineering method that can be used with any system or software engineering processME is a repeatable method where all of the processes and artifacts can be used, or it can be tailored with only a subset of the overall method ME analysis and artifacts support acquisition analysis, BOE costing and portfolio management. ANALYSIS, COMMUNICATION & UNDERSTANDING

3 3 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388 Why Was Mission Engineering Developed? Deliver systems with greater user satisfaction Speed up design and development time Provide analytical defendable traceability from customer need to architecture design Provide a better way to derive/illustrate COTS/GOTS/Technology integration requirements Identify the risk…technical, operational and programmatic Provide a more integrated and holistic view of the enterprise Customers spend millions of dollars…purchase the best hardware, the best software, and the best engineers…and if the users dont like or use the system…the system development was a failure

4 4 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388 Mission Engineering and the DODAF Pyramid Operational View Identifies What Needs to be Accomplished and Who Does It Technical Standards View Prescribes Standards and Conventions Systems View Relates Systems and Characteristics to Operational Needs Specific System Capabilities Required to Satisfy Information exchange Technical standards Criteria Governing Interoperable Implementation/Procurement of the Selected System Capabilities Systems that Support the Activities and Information Exchanges What Needs to Be Done Who Does It Information Exchanges Required to Get It Done Operational Requirements and Capabilities Basic Technology Supportability New Technical Capabilities

6 6 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388 Mission Engineering – What it will do, what it wont do Mission Engineering WILL: –Provide your program with enough functional requirements and preliminary design content to get you to your programs Preliminary Design Review (PDR) gate –Provide your program with a conceptual design of the system/application –Provide your program with high level business process flows that are linked to requirements –Provide data architects with a preliminary first draft data dictionary –Provide software architects with a complete workflow analysis, functional behaviors and interface points for COTS integration –Provide Business Process Analysts with lower level (level 5) process flows and business rules –Provide Test engineers with a first draft of the system test procedures –Provide Test engineers with multiple Mission and Capability functional threads –Provide Trainers with input to both standup and/or computer based training course material development –Provide system engineers and architects with preliminary interface definitions and architectural behaviors –Provide stakeholders (Customers) with an easily understood view of what will be developed and how it will be used –Provide your program high quality, rigorous, analytical business and engineering content…if you have the right team Mission Engineering will NOT: –Provide your program with detailed design; e.g. logical model, physical model, UML –Provide you with system level requirements; e.g. –ilities (maintainability, scaleability, etc), network protocals, etc Provide you with hardware requirements Provide you with network requirements, etc –Be useful to the program if you do not have the right team working on the analysis.

10 10 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388

11 11 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388 Phase 1 Summary of content At this point, we should have developed: –First draft of community model –Beginning of the actor list –Beginning of the tools (COTS/GOTS) list –Supplier list –Customer list –Partner list –Information Transaction table –TIME Elapsed: 1 to 3 weeks Additionally, if the program desires, we should also begin the story board for the concept visualization work

12 12 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388 Core Products Enterprise Activity Roadmap Activity Goals & Descriptions Capability Descriptions Enterprise Activity Function Map Mission Process Models Additional Products Business/Mission Process Analysis Technology Evaluation Matrix Mission Threads/Product Threads Actor and Activity Matrix Requirements Analysis C4ISR Views TEAM Customer Domain Experts Business Analysts Mission Eng Analyst Information Architect System Arch Output To: Community Model Updates ME Phase 3 BPR activities Program Marketing Strategic Acquisition Mission Engineering Phase II – Operations Analysis Process

13 13 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388 Work with stakeholders on the mission of the organization and the product & service value chain scenarios from a task flow perspective. Identify high level Mission or Operational Service Areas Identify functional activities involved within the system workflow…logical groupings Create an inventory illustrating the actor functional activities required in the performance of their mission or in production of a product or service The Enterprise Activity Roadmap is developed in an Integrated Product Team environment

14 14 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388 Increment 1 Increment 2 Increment 3 Operational Services Functional Activities Activity Name: Activity Code: Actor Class; Actor: Pre-: Post-: COTS/GOTS: Arch service: Source: Enterprise Activity Roadmap defined… Commercial Tool A Commercial Tool B Legacy App 1 No Tool ID

15 15 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388 Functional Breakdown of COTS/GOTS tools There are two ways to map tools to the activity roadmap; complete tool or tool function. For instance, in the illustration below, lets assume the yellow icon represents the Microsoft Office Tool. –As the MS Office tool, you can see exactly what activities have been identified that the MS Office tool will be used or integrated. –Or, if you break MS Office into its high level component functions, (e.g. E-Mail, Notes, Tasks, Contacts, Calendar), you would see which activities will use MS Office, but, you could also then see which component of MS office as well. –You would have: OL-C – outlook-calendar OL-E – outlook-e-mail OL-N – outlook-notes Add COTS/GOTS component as an attribute to activity

16 16 Don Schaefer – 703.984.3388 Mission Process Map (MPM) Overview Service Area Identifier A Mission Process Map (MPM) shows the BPR results in the context of a Mission thread. The steps in the MPM are mapped directly to the Activities in the Roadmaps and Service Areas in the Community Model Activities mapped to the Roadmap
