The ever-expanding reliance on software to achieve critical system capabilities is driving the necessity for software engineering organizations to adopt more robust analytic techniques to plan and manage their systems and software deliverables. Department of Defense DoD system and software acquisition and development are undergoing a transformation. The Software Acquisition Pathway in the DoD Adaptive Acquisition Framework AAF Figure 1 illustrates how sprints and releases create a rolling wave of software that flows into the operational baseline. This relatively new approach to the development of software for DoD systems typically uses a DevSecOps pipeline.
