Direct Support

An SEI engagement can consist of direct support for some activities, tools, and methods.

Acquisition Process Improvement

Whether you’re using Lean, Six Sigma, Theory of Constraints, AFSO 21, or other process improvement methods, the SEI can help. The SEI works directly with acquisition programs and organizations to help define a set of measurable improvement objectives, analyze for improvement, and implement changes and control mechanisms for long-term improvement.

Support for Software Acquisition and Systems Engineering Activities

The SEI works directly with program managers and their staffs to help them achieve their objectives. Teams of SEI technical experts work in acquisition environments in the Army, Navy, and Air Force, as well as with other DoD and civil agencies, applying SEI products and services as well as other industry best practices. The SEI supports a wide range of activities that include identifying and mitigating risk, benchmarking and improving acquisition processes, implementing software and systems engineering best practices, and more.
