Effective software and systems integration methods provide an understanding and importance of critical factors such as planning, systems design, requirements, software design, configuration management, integration, testing, subcontractors, and quality. The Military and Aerospace Defense that design, build, and test software work products effectively, provide the framework of disciplines during software design/development life-cycles. These methods support the building of software baselines inside integration environments to prepare for delivery of effective software and systems to customers. Opportunities to work in the technology field of software provided me the perspective and understanding of day to day engineering integration and test activities. It is critical that integration schedules are addressed and coordinated daily with software teams and outside organizations. The software design/development life-cycle must be completed and configured before baselines are released for test, integration, and functional checkouts. Effective software and systems integration deliver quality work products to ensure a commitment to planned schedules that will benefit current and future software industries and defense programs.
