Abstract : This report describes the Generic Systems Engineering Process (GSEP). The GSEP purpose is to provide systems engineers with the guidance and structure needed to efficiently develop high-quality, large, complex systems. To accomplish this, the GSEP defines an approach for communicating and coordinating an engineering effort, integrates the management and technical activities incorporates risk management activities, and provides engineering guidance that is detailed enough to be helpful, yet sufficiently flexible to allow for creativity. The GSEP is a generic development process and, as such, it can be applied to a wide variety of systems engineering efforts. The GSEP approach of defining a generic process and explaining how to create a specific process from the generic one, provides all the benefits of more traditional processes that are very specific in nature, but additionally provides the ability to customize the GSEP for specific applications.
