Press Release

STS Team Members presented a technical paper for “Improved Systems Engineering Technical Review Events with Modeling Maturity Metrics” at the IEEE International Symposium on Systems Engineering in Edinburgh, Scotland.  The symposium seeks to create an interactive forum for the advancement of the practice of systems engineering across the multiple disciplines and specialty areas associated with the engineering of complex systems. The paper coved the development of “self-assessing” metrics within a model that allowed it to provide an assessment of its maturity and completeness to represent a given system and how those metrics can be used to better plan the appropriate times for an event based technical review of a project.

The web-based tool will allow HHS’ 11 operational divisions to capture forecasted opportunities in a consolidated, customizable repository and facilitate vendor’s access to potential procurements. The PFDR is consistent with HHS’s strategic Enterprise Architecture (EA) policies, guidelines and IT infrastructure.
