Scope: Worldwide        

The Special Item Numbers (SINs) structured below are in a phased format. The phases represent the cycle of an engineering requirement.

 

871-1 Strategic Planning for Technology Programs/Activities

Services required under this SIN involve the definition and interpretation of high-level organizational engineering performance requirements such as projects, systems, missions, etc., and the objectives and approaches to their achievement. Typical associated tasks include, but are not limited to, an analysis of mission, program goals and objectives, requirements analysis, organizational performance assessment, special studies and analysis, training, privatization and outsourcing.

Example: The evaluation and preliminary definition of new and/or improved performance goals for navigation satellites – such as launch procedures and costs, multi-user capability, useful service life, accuracy and resistance to natural and man made electronic interference. Inappropriate use of this SIN is providing professional engineering services not specifically related to strategic planning for technology programs/activities and its associated disciplines.

871-2 Concept Development and Requirements Analysis

Services required under this SIN involve abstract or concept studies and analysis, requirements definition, preliminary planning, the evaluation of alternative technical approaches and associated costs for the development or enhancement of high level general performance specifications of a system, project, mission or activity. Typical associated tasks include, but are not limited to requirements analysis, cost/cost-performance trade-off analysis, feasibility analysis, regulatory compliance support, technology conceptual designs, training, privatization and outsourcing.

Example: The development and analysis of the total mission profile and lifecycle of the improved satellite including examination of performance and cost tradeoffs. Inappropriate use of this SIN is providing professional engineering services not specifically related to concept development and requirements analysis and its associated disciplines.

871-3 System Design, Engineering and Integration

Services required under this SIN involve the translation of a system (or subsystem, program, project, activity) concept into a preliminary and detailed design (engineering plans and specifications), performing risk identification/analysis/mitigation, traceability, and then integrating the various components to produce a working prototype or model of the system. Typical associated tasks include, but are not limited to computer-aided design, design studies and analysis, high level detailed specification preparation, configuration management and document control, fabrication, assembly and simulation, modeling, training, privatization and outsourcing.

Example: The navigation satellite concept produced in the preceding stage will be converted to a detailed engineering design package, performance will be computer simulated and a working model will be built for testing and design verification. Inappropriate use of this SIN is providing professional engineering services not specifically related to concept development and requirements analysis and its associated disciplines.

871-4 Test and Evaluation

Services required under this SIN involves the application of various techniques demonstrating that a prototype system (subsystem, program, project or activity) performs in accordance with the objectives outlined in the original design. Typical associated tasks include, but are not limited testing of a prototype and first article(s) testing, environmental testing, independent verification and validation, reverse engineering, simulation and modeling (to test the feasibility of a concept), system safety, quality assurance, physical testing of the product or system, training, privatization and outsourcing.

Example: The navigation satellite working model will be subjected to a series of tests which may simulate and ultimately duplicate its operational environment.

Inappropriate use of this SIN is providing professional engineering services not specifically related to testing and evaluating and its associated disciplines.

871-5 Integrated Logistics Support

Services required under this SIN involves the analysis, planning and detailed design of all engineering specific logistics support including material goods, personnel, and operational maintenance and repair of systems throughout their lifecycles. Typical associated tasks include, but are not limited to ergonomic/human performance analysis, feasibility analysis, logistics planning, requirements determination, policy standards/procedures development, long-term reliability and maintainability, training, privatization and outsourcing.

Example: The full range of lifecycle logistics support for the navigation satellite will be identified and designed in this stage including training, operation and maintenance requirements, and replacement procedures. Inappropriate use of this SIN is providing professional engineering services not specifically related to integrated logistics support and its associated disciplines.

871-6 Acquisition and Lifecycle Management

Services required under this SIN involve all of the planning, budgetary, contract and systems/program management execution functions required to procure and/or produce, render operational and provide lifecycle support (maintenance, repair, supplies, engineering specific logistics) to technology-based systems, activities, subsystems, projects, etc. Typical associated tasks include, but are not limited to, operation and maintenance, program/project management, technology transfer/insertion, training, privatization and outsourcing.

Example: During this stage the actual manufacturing, launch, and performance monitoring of the navigation satellite will be assisted through project management, configuration management, reliability analysis, engineering retrofit improvements and similar functions. Inappropriate use of this SIN is professional engineering services not specifically related to acquisition and life cycle management and associated disciplines.
