Breadth of Scope Developmental Engineering for another armada of Manned Ground Combat Vehicle (HW & SW) Developmental Engineering for another armada of Unmanned Ground and Aerial Vehicles (HW & SW) Developmental Engineering for Distributed System (HW and SW) Networked combination of FCS frameworks Sensors Effectors Maneuver Elements Networked incorporation of existing Army/Joint Systems Networked/Embedded preparing Networked/Embedded prognostics/sustainment Development and Integration of Tactical and Strategic Networks Development of new Army Organizational Structures (Brigade Combat Team) and Tactics, Techniques and Procedures Development of Modeling and Simulation Environment to bolster Simulation Based Acquisition (counting Operational Test) Incremental handling of items to current powers (Spin Outs) Fixed Cost and Schedule

Slide 5

Complexity of Concurrent Engineering Operational Concept Development Force Effectiveness Modeling Operational Architecture Development Technology Maturation Engineering Process Coordination and Alignment SoS Requirements Development Platform Requirements Development Distributed Systems Requirements Development Operational Software Development Platform Simulation Development Other Models and Simulations (landscape, Red Forces) Acquisition and Integration Technical and Operational Test Planning Production arranging All Activities are Currently Ongoing

Slide 6

Critical Success Factors Baseline Management Clarity and Control Agility of Change Organizational Efficiency Within LSI/Army Across One Team Partners (Suppliers) Concurrency Management Anchor Points Check Point Process Feasibility Assessments Compound Risk Integrated Status Demonstrated Performance

Slide 8

What We\'ve Learned Communications necessities are huge Our Organization is a Culture of Cultures Top is extremely spry with thoughts and longings Bottom is more careful and businesslike Outside associations are changing too Testers and Evaluators Certification and Release Authorities Auditors

Slide 9

Summary What is working Check Points for SW Staff conformity to simultaneousness Outside Experts/Oversight Agency Access What can be enhanced Anchor Points for Systems Engineering Flexibility in Criteria for Checkpoints/Anchor Points Go/No-Go versus Risk Assessment Incremental Feasibility Assessment
