Systems engineering leading indicators for assessing program and technical effectiveness

  title={Systems engineering leading indicators for assessing program and technical effectiveness},
  author={Donna H. Rhodes and Ricardo Valerdi and Garry J. Roedler},
  journal={Systems Engineering},
This paper discusses a three year initiative to transform classical systems engineering (SE) measures into leading indicators, including the resulting guidance information that has been developed and future research directions. Systems engineering leading indicators are measures for evaluating the effectiveness of the systems engineering activities on a program in a manner that provides information about impacts that are likely to affect the system or program performance objectives. A leading… CONTINUE READING
