Systems engineering plays a critical role in delivering a unified technical environment that eliminates inefficiencies, improves control over system boundaries, and enables seamless integration across multiple domains. In addition to technology expertise, Criterion’s systems engineering teams also bring a variety of boundary-crossing competencies, including Strategy and Planning (informed by the Technology Business Management (TBM) framework), Program Management Office (PMO), Capital Planning and Investment Control (CPIC), and Policy and Governance.
To deliver holistic systems engineering support, Criterion leverages its comprehensive methodology V-Model Methodology that integrates industry best practices from CMMI for Development Level 3 for process standardization and maturation, ISO 27001 to build security controls and continuous monitoring capabilities into systems from concept to O&M, and ISO 20000 to drive high quality service delivery and continuous improvement over the life of the system. The V-model provides a structured approach to systems engineering activities that can be applied to both integration efforts to create a common set of IT services and systems across the enterprise, as well as infrastructure modernization projects to implement a modern, flexible, secure, and scalable computing environment. This approach provides structured processes encompassing both the technical and non-technical aspects of solving business problems and defining solutions, to include business process reengineering to provide continual alignment and realignment of processes with customer priorities and goals.
