SEM Express offers guidance for small and straight-forward systems development projects. The intent of SEM Express is to provide an abbreviated methodology that ensures all necessary processes are performed and documented.
In general, the definition of “straight-forward” includes projects that:
Continue to operate in the existing infrastructure environment and do not involve procurement of additional infrastructure components;
Utilize existing resources and do not procure services (except when contractors are utilized as part of a multi-project initiative);
Testing activities focus on interfaces between and among components of the product, such as functional correctness, system stability, overall system operability, system security, privacy and sensitive information control, and system performance requirements.
Integrate components and conduct Integration Testing to determine whether the product meets predetermined functionality, performance, quality, interface, and security requirements.
Once the product is fully integrated, conduct System Testing to validate that the product will operate in its intended environment, satisfies all user requirements, and is supported with complete and accurate operating documentation.
After successful System Testing, conduct User Acceptance Testing (UAT) to identify any final product adjustments before implementation.
The intent of SEM tailoring guidelines, found in SEM Chapter 2 , is to provide flexibility in utilizing SEM components in the systems development process. The focus here is to ensure that adequate processes are used for each of the various types of systems engineering initiatives – “using the right tool for the job.”
