Unformatted text preview: coordination of the efforts of the specialty engineering disciplines into the systems engineering process during each iteration of that process. Where there is potential for overlap of specialty efforts, the SEMP should define the relative responsibilities and authorities of each. This section should contain, as needed, the project's approach to: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • 4.2.3 Concurrent engineering The activity phasing of specialty disciplines The participation of specialty disciplines The involvement of specialty disciplines The role and responsibility of specialty disciplines The participation of specialty disciplines in system decomposition and definition The role of specialty disciplines in verification and validation Reliability Maintainability Quality assurance Integrated logistics Human engineering Safety Producibility Survivability/vulnerability Environmental assessment Launch approval. Development of the SEMP The SEMP must be developed concurrently with the Project Plan. In developing the SEMP, the technical approach to the project, and hence the technical aspect of the project life cycle, are developed. This becomes the keel of the project that ultimately determines the project's length and cost. The development of the programmatic and technical management approaches requires that the key project personnel develop an understanding of the work to be performed and the relationships among the various parts of that work. (See Sections 4.3 and 4.4 on Work Breakdown Structures and network schedules, respectively.) The SEMP's development requires contributions from knowledgeable programmatic and technical experts from all areas of the project that can significantly influence the project's outcome. The involvement of recognized experts is needed to establish a SEMP that is credible to the project manager and to secure the full commitment of the project team.
