INTEGRATING PROJECT CONTROLS INTO THE SYSTEM ENGINEERING PROCESS|
PRESENTED BY ERIC R. MORRISON, CCC EVP PMP CMIT
The Electronic Industries Alliance, in conjunction with the International Council on Systems Engineering, published the Process for Systems Engineering standard (ANSI/EIA-632) as guidance to developing cost-effective solutions based on an established and evolved set of requirements. This process enables engineers and contractors to satisfy the customer's needs through the system lifecycle, and ultimately deliver the system within the customer's cost, schedule, and risk constraints. The Department of Defense adopted this standard in August of 2002, and it is now a requirement on most major system acquisitions.
The systems engineering process is developmental and iterative in nature, which leads to a host of unique and complex challenges for the project controls team. These challenges range from requirements administration and planning the design development effort, to periodic cost estimating and risk management integration. Utilized correctly, the project controls team can greatly influence and increase the probability of a successful program. This presentation will address the necessary project controls inputs for several of the EIA-632 requirements, and provide a reference framework for engineers and project controls teams operating under this requirement.
Eric Morrison is a consultant working on a five-year environmental remediation project for Rio Tinto in Salt Lake City, Utah. Eric is a CCC, EVP, PMP, and CMIT, and has served on the AACE Seattle Section Board of Directors for the past four years. Recently, Eric worked for Vigor Industrial as a Deputy Program Manager on various State and Federal ship programs, and he has also worked in a project controls capacity on several light rail projects for Parsons Transportation Group and KJM & Associates.
