The systems engineering case studies will assist in discussion of both successful and unsuccessful methodologies, processes, principles, tools, and decision material to assess the outcome of alternatives at the program/system level. In addition, the importance of using skills from multiple professions and engineering disciplines and collecting, assessing, and integrating varied functional data will be emphasized. When they are taken together, the student is provided real-world, detailed examples of how the process attempts to balance cost, schedule and performance. ... read more

The International Space Station (ISS) traces its heritage back to early plans for the United States Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL) program to the US Skylab, the Shuttle’s Space Lab and then through the multiple Soviet space stations culminating in the Mir. With the successful development and launch of the Space Shuttle, the United States was ready to take on a much larger space station concept. In the fall of 1985, NASA put together a plan for a dual-keel design with multiple US, European and Japanese research modules along with Canada’s planned Mobile Servicing System. ... read more

The systems engineering process changes as the program progresses from one phase to the next, as do tools and procedures. The process also changes over the decades, maturing, growing, and evolving from the base established during the conduct of past programs. Systems engineering has a long history. Examples can be found demonstrating application of effective engineering and engineering management, as well as poorly applied, but well-defined processes. ... read more

Use of approved joint doctrine during contingency and crisis action
planning facilitates both planning for and the execution of operations.
Planning for joint operations is continuous across the full range of military
operations using two closely related, integrated, collaborative, and adaptive
processes -- the Joint Operation Planning and Execution System (JOPES) and
the joint operation planning process (JOPP). JOPES and JOPP share the same
basic approach and problem-solving elements, such as mission analysis and
COA development. ... read more

The Department of Defense (DoD) continues to develop and acquire joint systems and to deliver needed capabilities to the warfighters. With a constant objective to improve and mature the acquisition process, it continues to pursue new and creative methodologies to purchase these technically complex systems. A sound systems engineering (SE) process, focused explicitly on delivering and sustaining robust, high-quality, affordable products that meet the needs of customers and stakeholders must continue to evolve and mature. ... read more

As in the case of discrete transistors, manufacturers do not agree on power supply labeling for
ICs. Some manufacturers use V+ to indicate the positive voltage and V- to indicate the negative
voltage, whereas another manufacturer might use the symbols VEE and VCC to represent negative
and positive respectively. Thus, the IC data sheet must be studied carefully before connecting
any power source. Typically, digital IC power supplies must be kept within + 5 to + 10 percent,
whereas linear ICs will generally operate satisfactorily with power sources of + 20 percent. ... read more

The following main points provide amplification of this issue:

 Acquisition and development processes must be more responsive to urgent mission needs to deliver
capabilities to the field more quickly. The current DoD acquisition environment is not well-suited to address
these needs, and agility can be encumbered by mismatches in processes, terminology, milestones, and
management methods.
 Prioritization of capabilities within an aggressive deployment schedule requires cooperative engagement
between the acquirer, developer, and warfighter. ... read more

The clear difference between Level 2 and Level 1 is that is possible to infer the approximate locations of the systems that transmit on the different frequencies. Knowing that certain types of equipment tend to use certain frequency ranges, and that certain types of equipment are favoured for different military
application, it is possible to further infer what is going on in the various areas of the map. None of this is beyond the wit of even the poorest funded intelligence agency to infer, so it is clearly information that needs to be protected. ... read more

The lessons learned from TBMCS can be directly applied to other software-intensive programs that require the integration of vast numbers of third-party products with government-furnished equipment (GFE), such as hardware and communications. The key lesson is that there is no substitute for a well-defined systems engineering process. In the case of TBMCS, external influences drove a relaxation of discipline and rigor in the systems engineering process. ... read more
