DCMA EVMS Compliance Metrics (DECM) v3.3 released

Posted by Michael Breuker on Tuesday, July 2, 2019

At the annual CPM EVM World conference in Ft. Lauderdale, DCMA announced that the DECM (formerly EVAS) v3.3 metrics would be officially released on May 25th. I was able to get a sneak preview. There are 6 new metrics, mostly around making sure planning packages and SLPPs don't have actual start dates, as well as some other minor clarifications in the language. I've since held off on publishing this announcement because the metrics weren't published immediately, but they are available now at this link.

Many people have asked about the configuration control board (CCB) process, and how industry and have input. At this time, DCMA plans to keep the official CCB process internal, but they have promised to gather input and have discussions during the NDIA IPMD quarterly meetings.

This is one of many reasons to attend the IPMD Meetings if you aren't already. Information about the next IPMD quarterly meeting is available here.
