Solving Reliability and Sustainability Problems in Systems Engineering through Government, Academia and Industry Collaboration
Since its founding in 1993, the RMS Partnership has been at the forefront of encouraging and supporting Government-Industry cooperation. For this reason and others, this RMS Partnership continues to serve as a place where RMS&L professionals and non-professionals alike turn for expert knowledge, direction and networking. The long-standing experience and professional integrity of the RMS Partnership has helped to establish its reputation as an "honest broker" among its partners and colleagues in government, academia and industry.

DoD NEWS ANNOUNCEMENT:
On May 8, 2013, the Department of Defense released a major update to the Defense Acquisition Guidebook (DAG) Chapter 4, Systems Engineering. The DAG Chapter 4 is the primary reference on the use of systems engineering throughout the system life cycle.
With this release, the chapter has been restructured to provide Program Managers and Systems Engineers with life cycle phase and systems engineering technical review expectations, including a knowledge-based, technical-maturity table for key events. The chapter provides details on systems engineering technical and technical management processes and includes links to relevant policy, standards, and detailed guidance on key topics. The Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems Engineering developed Chapter 4 working closely with contributors from 24 different organizations across the Department. The update reflects recent policy changes and Better Buying Power initiatives. It emphasizes the role of systems engineering in providing balanced solutions (managing the system's cost, schedule, performance, and risk) to deliver Warfighter capability needs.
