The number of subsystem and system design reviews

This preview shows page 30 - 31 out of 31 pages.

The number of subsystem and system design reviews successfully completed; the percentage of drawings completed; planned corrective actions to hardware/software deficiencies; adequate development testing; an assessment of environment, safety, and occupational health risks; a completed failure modes and effects analysis; the identification of key system characteristics and critical manufacturing processes; an estimate of system reliability based on demonstrated reliability rates; etc, are all areas which may be reviewed. Successful completion of the Design Readiness Review ends System Integration and continues the SDD phase into the System Demonstration effort. APSG Enclosure (14), “Design Readiness Review Decision Review Guidance”, provides the PM the necessary timelines, checklists and procedures to successfullyprepare for a DRR Readiness Review.4.3.2.2Preparing For an Operational Test Readiness Review (OTRR):Following successful developmental testing, the Program Office must turn its focus to Operational Testing (OT). OT&E of programs is structured to determine the operational effectiveness and suitability of a system under realistic conditions, and to determine if the minimum acceptable operational performance requirements as specified in the capabilities documents (ORD/CDD/CPD) and reflected by the Key Performance Parameters (KPPs) have been satisfied. OT&E, properly executed, contains the following characteristics:The test is controlled by an independent agency (i.e. Commander Operational Test and Evaluation Force (COMOPTEVFOR)).Many-on-many tests (Entire System).Realistic/tactical environment with operational scenario(s).No system contractor involvement.Military / Government Users are recently trained with representative (not special) training program.Performance measures of operational effectiveness and suitability.Test to operational requirements.Use production or production representative test article(s).The purpose for conducting an OTRR is to determine the material readiness of a system, support packages, instrumentation, test planning, and test participants to support the OT. It includes the identification of any problem(s) that may impact the start or proper execution of the OT, and provides an opportunity to make required changes to test plans, resources, training, or equipment. To accomplish this, all members of the program development team should meet regularly to assess test status and establish consensus on successful demonstration of programrequirements. For all phases of OT, PEO C4I and Space shall convene a special session of the Test Integration Working Group (TIWG) including the MDA to conduct the OTRR. This group performs detailed test progress assessments to provide a recommendation to the Decision PEO C4I and Space ACQUISITION PROGRAM STRUCTURE GUIDEVersion 3.0Feb 2004The characteristicsof a properlyexecuted OT&E.
