This report describes the data collection and analysis process used to support the assessment of project performance for the systems engineering (SE) effectiveness study being conducted by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Systems Engineering Division, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society. This study seeks to identify relationships between the application of specific systems engineering practices on development projects, and the performance of those projects, as measured by their satisfaction of budget, schedule, and technical requirements.
