MIL-STD-499B - Systems Engineering

Body
The cover of the defining standards document states:

Superseding MIL-STD-499A 1 May 1974

However, as this standard was never officially approved and released it did not ever officially supersede: MIL-STD-499A - Engineering Management.

ISO 9000

Body

From ISO 9000 essentials:

The ISO 9000 family of standards represents an international consensus on good quality management practices. It consists of standards and guidelines relating to quality management systems and related supporting standards.

ISO 9001:2008 is the standard that provides a set of standardized requirements for a quality management system, regardless of what the user organization does, its size, or whether it is in the private, or public sector. It is the only standard in the family against which organizations can be certified – although certification is not a compulsory requirement of the standard.

The other standards in the family cover specific aspects such as fundamentals and vocabulary, performance improvements, documentation, training, and financial and economic aspects.

From Wikipedia: ISO 9000:

ISO 9000 is a family of standards for quality management systems. ISO 9000 is maintained by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization and is administered by accreditation and certification bodies. The rules are updated, as the requirements motivate changes over time.

Some of the requirements in ISO 9001:2008 (which is one of the standards in the ISO 9000 family) include

* a set of procedures that cover all key processes in the business;
* monitoring processes to ensure they are effective;
* keeping adequate records;
* checking output for defects, with appropriate and corrective action where necessary;
* regularly reviewing individual processes and the quality system itself for effectiveness; and
* facilitating continual improvement

A company or organization that has been independently audited and certified to be in conformance with ISO 9001 may publicly state that it is "ISO 9001 certified" or "ISO 9001 registered". Certification to an ISO 9001 standard does not guarantee any quality of end products and services; rather, it certifies that formalized business processes are being applied.

Although the standards originated in manufacturing, they are now employed across several types of organizations. A "product", in ISO vocabulary, can mean a physical object, services, or software.

Lockheed Martin Federal Systems

Body

From Wikipedia: Lockheed Martin Systems Integration - Owego:

Lockheed Martin Systems Integration - Owego (LMSI) is a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin, in the Electronic Systems sector, located in Owego, New York, with approximately 4,000 employees. It was formerly known as Lockheed Martin Federal Systems. Originally founded as IBM Federal Systems in 1957, it was sold to Loral Corporation in 1994. Subsequently, Lockheed Martin acquired Loral's electronic systems and systems integration business in 1996.

Integration Definition (IDEF)

From the Wikipedia:

IDEF (Integration DEFinition) is a family of modeling languages in the field of systems and software engineering. They cover a wide range of uses, from functional modeling to data, simulation, object-oriented analysis/design and knowledge acquisition. These "definition languages" were developed under funding from U.S. Air Force and although still most commonly used by them, as well as other military and Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, are in the public domain.

EIA/IS 731 - Systems Engineering Capability

The EIA G-47 Committee initiated an effort to merge the INCOSE System Engineering Capability Assessment Model (SECAM) and the EPIC SE-CMM in 1996. EIA Interim Standard (IS) 731, Version 1.0 was released on January 20, 1998. It contained two parts: Part 1 was the Systems Engineering Capability Model (SECM) and Part 2 was the SECM Appraisal Method. The purpose of this standard is to support the development and improvement of system engineering. Attention to this standard has become overcome by events (OBE) because of the Integrated Capability Maturity Model (CMMI) initiative, being driven by the U.S. DoD, and being worked by the NDIA by representatives of the EIA and the SEI.
