  3. Key System Attribute

Performance attribute of a system considered important to achieving a balanced solution/approach to a system, but not critical enough to be designated as a Key Performance Parameter (KPP). KSAs must be measurable, testable, and support efficient and effective Test and Evaluation (T&E). KSAs are expressed in terms of Measures of Performance (MOPs).
