System Engineering

“The system engineering process is the engine that drives the balanced development of system products and processes applied to each level of development, one level at a time”.

GP Strategies has over 30 years of system engineering support to various military systems in support of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Newport, RI and other Government activities. GP Strategies has provided support in the development and execution of documentation of all system engineering elements listed in the table below:

System Engineering Process Element Element Description
Process Inputs Consists primarily of the customer’s needs, objectives, requirements, and project constraints.
Requirements Analysis The part of the process used to develop functional and performance requirements clarifying and defining the functional requirements and design constraints. Functional requirements define quantity, quality, coverage, time lines, and availability. Design constraints define those factors that limit design flexibility.
Functional Analysis/ Allocation The part of the process where functions are analyzed by decomposing higher-level functions identified by the requirements analysis into lower-level functions. The performance requirements associated with the higher-level are allocated to the lower functions. This is the functional architecture of the product. Key tools: Functional Flow Block Diagrams; Time Line Analysis; and the Requirements Allocation Sheet.
Design Synthesis The part of the process of defining the product in terms of the physical and software elements resulting in the physical architecture. This is the basic structure for generating specifications and product baselines.
Verification The part of the process where the solution is compared with the requirements to validate, through an established test method.
System Analysis and Control The part of the process where technical management activities are used to measure progress, evaluate and select alternatives, and document data and decisions. Tools used to provide analysis include modeling, simulation, experimentation, and testing. Control activities include risk management, configuration management, data management, performance-based metrics, and technical reviews.
System Engineering Process Output Encompasses the decision database, the system or configuration item architecture and the baselines/specifications.
