Integration Process



The Integration Process is the method to systematically assemble lower-level system elements into successively higher-level system elements, in an iterative and verifiable manner until the system itself emerges.  Integration is essential to increasing system maturity, reducing risk, and preparing the system for transition to the warfighter. This sub-topical area contains information on the Integration Process found in the Systems Engineering Guidebook, Section 4.2.5.
