Systems Engineering Planning
Systems Engineering planning, as documented in the Systems Engineering Plan (SEP), formulates the approach to conduct, manage and control all the technical activities to deliver a desired capability. SE Planning begins with the identification and decomposition of user needs and concepts, and progresses through development, delivery and sustainment of the final product. The Systems Engineering Guidebook provides overarching guidance on the systems engineering discipline, its activities and processes, and its practice in defense acquisition programs. This topical area contains information on SE Planning for DoD acquisitions.
