This section identifies the needed activities that support the systems engineering process steps identified in the previous sections. Each of these cross-cutting activities support one or more of the process steps and in most cases are shown as Enablers and/or Controls. These cross-cutting activities are processes that support each other as well as the systems engineering process steps.
The following is the list of cross-cutting activities that have been identified as part of this Guidebook.
These activities are critical to successfully developing Intelligent Transportation Systems, and, in the case of configuration management, extend throughout the life of the system. Cross-cutting activities provide a set of industry best practices that support the gathering of information plus provide the checks and balances needed to ensure the quality of the product.
