Building A Business Case for Systems Engineering: the 2012 SE Effectiveness Study

This briefing provides the results of the NDIA-IEEE/AES “Systems Engineering Effectiveness Study”, conducted in the 2011-2012 time frame.
The data were collected via an extensive survey of defense and commercial companies, both US and international, concernng their systems engineering involvement in programs and projects.
The survey questions were based on the widely-adopted CMMI, or Capability maturity Model Integration, with focus on the systems engineering aspects thereof.
The study was conducted to determine if there were a definitive correlation between systems engineering work performed on projects/programs, and the overall success of the project/program.
