SE&A's updated IMP/IMS guide and SEP Outline have been posted to SE&A's "Policy and Guidance" site at [https://www.cto.mil/sea/pg/]. Also, SE&A just posted the updated RIO Guide (Sep 2023)
The PM, Systems Engineer, and Lead Software Engineer should address and document design considerations, including all statutory and regulatory requirements in order to:
- Translate the end-user desired capabilities into a structured system of interrelated design specifications that support delivery of required operational capability.
- Enable trade-offs among the design considerations in support of achieving desired mission effectiveness within cost and schedule constraints.
- Incorporate design considerations into the set of system requirements, as some are mandated by laws, regulations, or treaties, while others are mandated by the domain or DoD Component or Agency; these mandates should be incorporated during the Requirements Analysis process to achieve balance across all system requirements.
The DoD has put additional emphasis on the four Specialty Engineering design considerations as well as Value Engineering identified in the tiles below resulting in development of additional policy (DoDI 5000.88) and additional guidance. Select the tiles below and please refer to Section 5 of the Systems Engineering Guidebook for more information.
