Software Sustainment Performance Measures – A Tutorial on Identifying and Implementing Effective Measures for Today's Weapons Systems
Provide insight into the state of the practice for measuring software sustainment and maintenance across the DoD, and how to identify, define and implement performance measures to support decision making at the Project, Organizational and Enterprise levels.
Is your software sustainment organization effective? As software plays an ever-increasing role in enabling weapon systems and consuming precious resources, the need for objective management and insight is essential. This tutorial will provide an overview of the measures used in practice across the DoD software sustainment enterprise. It will highlight common information needs and decisions related to software sustainment and provide candidate measures that can be tailored and refined locally. Participants are encouraged to investigate what measures are used within their domain to enable an active discussion. Participants will gain an understanding of the data, processes, resources and tools required to implement an effective software sustainment measurement capability.
