I.4 Unique Commodity Applications. Many of the commodity
classes apply common elements in a way that is unique to their programs.
I.4.1 Space Systems. The Space community must report, at a
minimum, the common elements of systems engineering, integration and test and
program management (SEIT/PM).
Systems engineering (SE) refers to the resources associated with all
engineering including functional specialists who provide technical planning,
technical management, analysis, and support efforts for development and
production activities. It includes: systems engineering, safety,
quality assurance, reliability, availability, maintainability, and human
engineering. SE is responsible for the analysis, derivation, allocation,
and traceability of requirements and interfaces. This effort includes:
establishing requirement, interfaces, analysis, models and simulations,
quality, configuration control, performance assessments, and managing design,
development, production and integration.
Integration and test (IT) includes the resources necessary to: integrate,
perform integration and test management; requirements definitions, planning
and scheduling, development of test plans and procedures, test preparations
and conduct, development of software for supporting integration and test and
review, analysis and documentation of test results.
Program management (PM) includes the resources necessary to manage, direct
and control all effort contributing to the development, production of custom
and commercial off-theshelf (COTS) procurements and integration. It
includes administration, project controls, product effectiveness, data and
configuration management, subcontract management and security
