In implementing a particular type of maintenance practice, consider the probability and consequence of failure, available historical data, risk tolerance and resource availability. Centers are also encouraged to share this information with the office responsible for AF SEAM configuration management and control, which after reviewing the input with other stakeholders across the AF, may elect to include this additional information in future model iterations.

This provides a basis for acquisition process discipline, while balancing the need for flexibility, and tailoring to specific AF user needs.

avi The conceptual set of mission profiles must be refined into a comprehensive set of design mission reference profiles that define the product performance boundaries, intended usage modes and environments in engineering terms.

Page 13 Share Cite. CMG2P4 Track and control changes. Develop verification methods concurrently and iteratively with the product and product-component requirements and designs.


Establish and maintain a documented description of the process. Iteratively as the layers of the 6-501 architecture are defined the product’s required 63501 should be allocated to the components.

Other Considerations Examples of methods for providing training include self-study; self-directed training; self-paced, programmed instruction; formalized on-the-job training; mentoring; and formal and classroom training. Additionally, the committee found throughout the study process that many of these concerns appear to continue to plague Air Force acquisition programs today.


Track corrective actions until subsequent verification activities confirm compliance with requirements.

The acquirer Version September 45 Version September is generally responsible for the higher levels, starting with operational requirements, and the suppliers are generally responsible for lower levels. DG3P4 Conduct, prior to assembly product-component verification Description: MG4P3 Establish and maintain defect control Description: Process Areas PAs Process areas are individually described in terms that define the overarching purpose and concepts associated with the process area.

Ensure that impacts to external environment e. Each practice specific and generic are graded as either satisfied 1 or colored green or not satisfied 0 and colored red. Identify data rights and integrate with support strategy options see LHA reference. Document the interaction of the product-components with the environment, other systems, and end users including modes and operating states for a particular component or set of components.

If the team lead is not available, then the training is provided in person by an individual who is intimately familiar with and experienced in the use of AF SEAM.

Attention to storage and retrieval procedures helps ensure that data are available and accessible for future use.

Validation assessors use this information, personal interviews, and independent research to determine if a practice is being met. Version September 5 Version September AF SEAM is comprised of ten process areas which are presented in alphabetical order with their associated acronym below: This documentation complements the technical data developed during design and manufacturing.

The resulting plans should be reviewed for consistency with the overall acquisition ati.

The following paragraphs summarize what occurs during each phase of the process. Identify the key factors and selection criteria that provide a basis for the solution e. While this model identifies practices that should be implemented it does not prescribe specific implementation Version September 4 Version September approaches.


Respondents should be aware that notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person shall be subject to a penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if it does not display a currently valid OMB control number. The USAF now faces serious challenges in acquiring and maintaining its weapons systems as it strives to maintain its current programs; add new capabilities to counter evolving threats; and reduce its overall program expenditures. Ensure that the resources necessary to perform the process are available when they are needed.

Identify safety critical functions and ensure affected hardware and software components are treated as safety critical. Therefore, this model is intended to be tailored to meet the needs of the user.

Identify criteria that provide clear discrimination and an indication of success in arriving at a balanced solution across the life of the product.

Solutions, designs, and implementations encompass products, product components, and product-related life-cycle 63-01 either singly or in combinations as appropriate. DG3P2 Establish and maintain procedures and criteria for integration of the product-components Description: When actual status deviates significantly from expected values, corrective actions are 663-501, as appropriate.

DG1P2 Establish and maintain interface designs Description:
