Align Requirements with Program Definition
Key to establishing any program one must understand the customer’s needs and translate those needs into a series of cost, schedule, and performance requirements. These requirements must support the goals and expectations the customer has for delivering the most effective solution to the field. To achieve these requirements, MCR considers not only the resources required, but also the technology applications and functional capabilities to ensure an effective program definition.
MCR takes into consideration all aspects of the program to achieve the desired results. Using business and IT strategies, investment planning, enterprise architecture, operational effectiveness, life cycle management, and change management, MCR determines through analysis of alternatives the best solution within the cost, schedule and performance constraints.
MCR begins the requirements definition by taking into consideration what solutions already exist in terms of capabilities and functionality and determine what needs to be accomplished to meet the strategic goals of the program. By following an iterative capabilities and architectural analysis process, MCR is better able to translate the user’s needs into technology opportunities and resources. Key to this success is a clear understanding of the technical aspects of the program. It is for this reason MCR provides a full functioning engineering, financial, and program assessment team. We are able to not only determine the technology readiness of a program but also its acquisition readiness.
Throughout this process, MCR takes into consideration the organizational and processes changes needed to better manage and maintain program effectiveness. MCR defines, analyzes, and evaluates a framework to establish program baselines, objectives, and strategies. We then examine all processes to identify more effective and efficient alternatives to the process, data, and organizational baselines and develop a preliminary economic analysis to select a preferred course of action. Ultimately MCR is able to execute the approved process and organizational change to provide the customer with the proper oversight of any associated changes.
Finally by identifying the associated risk and opportunity costs, MCR can determine the preferred solution that not only meets the customer’s need in terms of system characteristics, cost, schedule and performance, but also the most effective processes or organizational structures necessary to support this solution.
