This book shows the reader how to write a system engineering management plan (SEMP) that reflects the company's identity and is appropriate to most customers' requirements, e.g., MIL-STD-499, ISO 9001, the U.S. Air Force Integrated Management System, and EIA STD 632.

The first section of this book provides a brief introduction to the process of developing a SEMP. The remainder contains a source model of a SEMP that is generic in nature. A computer disk is included with the book to provide the SEMP in a form (Microsoft Word) that can be used for the reader's own plan.
