This comprehensive course addresses the FAC-P/PM Senior Level competencies of “Requirements Development and Management Processes,” “Systems Engineering,” “Test and Evaluation,” and “Life Cycle Logistics” and all of FAI’s performance outcomes for those competencies. Due to the broad scale of this competency area as defined by FAI, this course serves as an overview to the entire Senior Level curriculum and Senior Level certification process. As a Senior Level course it reviews, but goes considerably beyond, the basic concepts presented in earlier levels of the same course to ensure all participants are knowledgeable of the fundamentals and are able to manage/supervise the overall process. Additional emphasis on the fundamentals will be provided as needed.
Specific topics addressed include managing/supervising the following processes: Requirements development; Concept selection; Technology development; Core management skills of project management; Total ownership cost; Market research; Risk and Opportunity management; Communications management; and Working groups/teams. Additional topics addressed by this course include: the technical processes and technical management processes of systems engineering; creation of an integrated T&E strategy, including operational test and evaluation; and life cycle logistics management, product support, and interoperability.
Exercises are included to allow the students to practice the skills that they are developing throughout the course. This course will also provide the participants with an assessment tool which they will use to evaluate their organization’s overall acquisition system performance in accordance with OMB A-123. An additional assessment tool is being provided to assist the students in tracking and determining their achievement of attaining the new performance outcomes defined by FAI for Senior-level certification. Finally, students will make a presentation describing the actions they intend to take when they return to work to implement the lessons they learned during the class. Along with other course deliverables, this Action Plan will be evaluated to determine course credit.
