 All of the nearly 80 active TEAS task orders are engaged in engineering activities, and emphasize Systems Engineering (SE) best practices at all stages of research, development, acquisition, fielding, and sustainment.  Most of our technical staff provides systems engineering support in addition to and augmenting their engineering specialty areas.  To list every effort would require more space than could be reasonably allocated here.  However, systems engineering and process engineering support is such a foundational element critical to the success of our TEAS work that we created three Communities of Practice (CoPs) led by a nationally recognized Subject Matter Expert (SME) Technical Fellow which address SE concerns.  First and foremost, the Systems Engineering CoP is chartered to continue to grow our vibrant SE culture, sustain and improve our SE-knowledgeable workforce, and use effective SE tools and processes in support of our customers.  The Chief Systems Engineer leads the SE CoP and reviews every task quarterly to ensure SE best practices are instilled in our work.  The System Performance Analysis CoP complements the SE CoP by serving as the DoD and Jacobs authority on System Performance Analysis as it pertains to weapons acquisition programs.  It is the vehicle we use to educate the TEAS Team on when and how to use System Performance Analysis during the weapons acquisition life-cycle and to elevate and recognize TEAS Team members’ expertise in the various elements of Systems Performance Analysis.  Finally, the Manufacturing CoP provides technical expertise in the areas of mechanical and electronic manufacturing and advances our basic and state-of-the-art knowledge in manufacturing and related areas such as quality, reliability and maintainability, design for manufacturability and assembly, and in-process testing and testability.  The manufacturing CoP and its members provide expertise in lean manufacturing, factory planning and layout, factory simulation, factory automation and robotics, microelectronics, printed wiring board processes, factory flow analysis, product testing, direct numerical control, machining and machining centers, flexible manufacturing, work cells, process capability analysis, statistical process control, variation reduction, and acquisition reform.

For the initial deployment of the Ground Based Mid-Course Defense (GMD) segment of the MDA Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), as well as for the expansions and upgrades through April 2011, Shearer & Associates provided secretariat support to the facilities Configuration Management Program. In this role, we wrote and executed the GMD Facilities Configuration Management Plan for GMD facilities, and later as a result of organizational changes reworked the GMD plan into the MDA Facilities Configuration Management Plan for the MDA. This action included writing and administering the program office and later the agency level program, assisting lower level elements in developing their programs to support the agency requirements, and actually administering all the proposed facility changes which were developed throughout the period. This required extensive coordination with all levels of MDA as well as other stakeholders such as Space and Missile Defense Command, Navy Facilities Engineering Command, US Army Corps of Engineers, and various other commands and installations. The plan was noted for being highly effective, for accommodating changing organizational requirements, and for recognizing the need to gather pertinent information from a wide variety of sources. It allowed the MDA to maintain configuration control over a wide variety of complex facilities throughout deployment, maintenance, and upgrade phases of the various elements of the BMDS.
