Systems Engineering

Using an interdisciplinary, collaborative approach, The Columbia Group delivers systems engineering management support for our customers involved with the development and life cycle management of a system. We employ a logical sequence of activities and decisions to transform operational needs into a description of system performance parameters and preferred system configurations. This includes the assessment of system development processes; employing system analyses and controls; and providing systems planning, organization and management support. The Columbia Group services include requirements management, hardware and software development support, developmental and operational testing support, technical data development and review, program performance metrics tracking, and risk management. These services are part of the overall SE Process.
