Lecture Topic: Systems Engineering Planning and Management for Collaborative Commercial and Military Product Development Environments

Aerospace and defense companies that share one engineering talent pool to serve both commercial and military customers can benefit by implementing a uniform approach to systems engineering. It is normal to expect that systems engineering processes applied to commercial product development should be far less complicated than for military programs. Yet it can be confusing to engineering resources assigned to both program types if the processes differ significantly. Options are presented for deploying standard systems engineering planning and management regardless of the program type or customer
