DoD SE Policy and Guidance
Interim DoD Instruction (DoDI) 5000.02
• Emphasize intent, planning vs. rules
• Acquisition models tailored for
program characteristics and risk
• Added emphasis on early requirements,
RFP, technology maturation, software
• Extensive updates to SE (encl. 3)
Systems Engineering Plan (SEP)
http://www.acq.osd.mil/se/briefs/169512014_10_29_NDIA-SEC-Sedmak-SE-PG-vF.pdf
• Approved at milestone reviews, included
in RFP as guidance or compliance
Defense Standardization
• Developing new DoD-specific standards for: SE, Technical
Reviews/Audits, CM, Manufacturing, Logistics
GFY15 Planned Activities
• SE updates: Defense Acquisition Guidebook (DAG); SEP template;
Risk Management Guide

Keynote: Hon. Wm. LaPlante
Asst Secy Air Force (Acq)
Keys to acquisition:
• Agility, adapt to unknown threats, open architectures
• “Our ability to predict is uncertain – we will be
wrong, so we must adapt and be strategic.”
Air Force priorities:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Get our programs right (size, mission, …)
Transparency – tell it straight
“Read Mr. Kendall’s report on performance of the defense acquisition
system” – contract types, having the right incentives
Own the technical baseline – system models, performance, data rights
Implement “Better Buying Power” – “should cost”, affordability, sustainment
Build systems for adversaries, mission threats – don’t wait (e.g., cyber)
What is systems engineering?
•
•
•
•
•
“To be a true SE, you must be an expert in something – then build on that”
Know the fundamentals of the domain for your system
Be empirical – follow the data vs. opinions
Be close to a warfighter expert, e.g., C2, validation, sustainment
“We would have systems engineers be PMs on all programs”
