quality to meet the needs of the eventual users of the products. There was a time when the Government routinely required that various contractor processes be conducted in accordance with standards that were called out in the contract. Today, the more common approach is for the Governmen t to require that contractors perform at high levels of quality, and to ask that the contractors include in their proposals the specific standards with which their processes will be compliant. Then, with Government concurrence, those become the standards that are used to evaluate the processes for compliance and completeness. Contractors may propose that corporate standards be used, which the Government encourages when the company's internal standards describe processes that are complete and will deliver the produc ts at the levels o f quality required.

ACQlOl Fundamentals of System Acquisition Management Lesson 10.9 · Role of Standards and Specifications in Sy stems Engineering RESOURCES 1 PRINT 1 HELP Using Specifications Once a product has been designed, d ev eloped, and produced, it can be and often is documented with a group of specifications that d escribe the details of the product. Design usually starts with a system spec tha t calls out the function, performance, and interface requiremen ts of the sys tem itself. As a design is further elaborated, requirements are flowed down from sy stem level to the major i tems below system level ( the maj or subsystems) , and finally to detailed physical descriptions of the components selected (or designed) t o perform the functions required at the specified levels of performance. The item detail specification, in combination with associated drawings, parts lists, process specs, and material specs, are together often re ferred to as the Technical Data Package (TOP). This is the detailed information that enables a complex system to be manu fac tured . 101111111111111 Pilge 4 of 10 I _.....Back Next
ACQlOl Fundamentals of System Acquisition Management Lesson 10.9-Role of Standards and Specifications in Systems Engineering RESOURCES 1 PRINT 1 HELP Interface Specifications In addition to specifications that describe the product itself, in DoD we commonly use Interface Specs to describe in detail the nature of the interfaces ( system to system or internal interfaces) . In an environment where commercial items are often used in the system architecture, it becomes ever more important that the nature of the interfaces be carefully documented to ensure proper function and interoperabili ty.
