Abstract:

This document summarizes the best practices and lessons learned in several decades of acquiring Non-Developmental Item NDI systems. These processes have been codified into a tailorable process and several subprocesses. This process has been reconciled with the Centers systems engineering processes and practices to ensure its practical applications. The process also introduces the concept of a system life-cycle management agent responsible for emerging the process application throughout the system life cycle. The heavy application of NDI to system acquisitions raises a variety of very significant issues that must be resolved across traditional organizational boundaries and that require the coordination of a variety of engineering expertise the system life-cycle management concept provides for this technical coordination and ensures the appropriate expertise is applied to the resolution of these issues.
