The Contractor shall implement and maintain a SE program using the BMP Systems Engineering Model, EIA-632, and IEEE P1220 as guidance. The objective of the SE Program is to translate operational needs and requirements into system solutions that include the design, manufacturing, Test and Evaluation (T&E), and support processes and products. The SE Program is expected to establish a proper balance among performance, risk, cost and schedule, employing a top down iterative process of requirements analysis, functional analysis and allocation, synthesis of design and verification, and system analysis and control.
The SE program is expected to be implemented through
use of Integrated Product Teams (IPTs), with customer participation. IPT
decisions, risks, trades, documents, etc. shall be documented in the Decision
