The Government and Defense industries have unique challenges in providing large scale systems (GOTS, COTS, bespoke and C4ISR systems) that have to be easy to use, highly scalable, secure and fault tolerant whilst following statutory methodologies such as DOD 5000 and OMB 300. Inflectra has many customers amongst governments, law enforcement and national security agencies using our products to ensure high quality systems are delivered every time.
All design, development and acquisition of new systems (hardware, software, platforms, communications, etc.) within the United States Department of Defense (DoD) follows the DOD 5000 acquisition lifecycle process:
The DoD 5000 process provides a set of best practices and associated documentation that needs to be used for companies that are designing information systems that will be used within the DoD or any of the armed services (e.g. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps).
The DoD 5000 documents the processes that needs to be followed by each of these activities:
Inflectra provides its customers in the Defense community with powerful tools to perform each of these activities with complete traceability across the entire acquisition lifecycle:
The Systems Engineering (SE) Process controls the total system development effort for the purpose of achieving an optimum balance of all system elements. It is designed to translate operational need and/or requirements into a system.
SpiraTeam provides a complete requirements and system engineering platform to capture and analyze your requirements and plan the development and testing activities that will need to take place to translate the requirements into components and ultimately a functioning system:
Test and Evaluation (T&E) is the process by which a system or components are compared against requirements and specifications through testing. The results are evaluated to assess progress of design, performance, and supportability.
SpiraTest from Inflectra is the only system commercially available that provides both test coverage of components at the test case and test step level:
Specifically, traceability of requirements to the individual test steps is required for mission systems where the individual actions performed need to be tied back to the original specifications and requirements:
Within the DoD methodology, cost, schedule, performance, and risk define the basic dimensions of program management that need to be managed. SpiraTeam provides a complete project and program management capability, fully integrated into the systems engineering lifecycle that lets you manage your schedule, objectives, performance and risk:
Within the US Government, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Exhibit 300 defines the way in which Government agencies need to plan, budget and acquire and manage all of their IT assets.
Each year, Government agencies submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a Capital Asset Plan and Business Case—the exhibit 300—to justify each request for a major information technology (IT) investment. The exhibit’s content reflects controls that agencies have established to ensure good project management, as well as showing that they have defined cost, schedule, and performance goals. It is thus a tool to help OMB and agencies identify and correct poorly planned or performing investments.
Inflectra provides Government customers with the best tools to more easily manage their portfolio of projects and ensure that sound project management practices are in place
Specifically, SpiraTeam provides real-time project dashboards that let all stakeholders have an up to the minute view into the cost, schedule and performance of the project as well as have insight into the key project issues and risks that have been identified.
Furthermore, the program portfolio views in SpiraTeam let the executive leadership of the agencies have a single unified dashboard of all their projects in one integrated view.
