Abstract:

To help the Office of the Director Test, Systems Engineering and Evaluation ODTSEE in its efforts to conduct Integrated Product and Process Development IPPD case studies, the Institute for Defense Analyses IDA searched the open literature and the World Wide Web for examples of IPPD implementation. This document summarizes these examples of IPPD implementation within the Department of Defense DoD program offices and defense and commercial industry. These examples show numerous successes with various facets of IPPD implementation. Different examples use different terms to describe the basic IPPD principles, but the message is still the same, involving the customer and the right stakeholders early, focusing on the life cycle, and developing products concurrently with their related processes all contribute to producing products faster, better, and cheaper. These examples are presented here for ODTSEE to consider as candidates to expand into case studies.
