engineering management which will satisfy those regulations, directives, and standards which
contain policy for the application of system engineering. System engineering is performed for
projects, systems, or items designated a major program under the provisions of AR 70-1. The
process is consistent with and complementary to DA Pam 11-25, Life Cycle System
Management Model for Army Systems. it may be performed for nonmajor programs, based on
the expected complexity of the program or weapon system interfaces. The manual presents a
means for integrating the efforts of each technical and managerial specialist in the design and
development of a total, balanced system. It contains guidelines for the identification of tasks and
responsibilities for implementing the system engineering process.
