-Define the methods, processes, and evaluation criteria by which the systems, subsystems and work products are verified against their requirements in a written plan
-Develop system design solution that satisfies the system requirements and fulfills the functional analysis
-Participate in the development of system engineering documentation, such as System Engineering Plans, Initial Capabilities Documents, Requirements Specifications , and Interface Control Documents
-Participate in interface definition, design, and changes to the configuration between affected groups and individuals throughout the life cycle
-Derive from the system requirements an understanding of stakeholder needs functions that may be logically inferred and implied as essential to system effectiveness
-Derive lower-level requirements from higher-level allocated requirement that describe in detail the functions that a system component must fulfill, and ensure these requirements are complete, correct, unique, unambiguous realizable and verifiable
-Review and/or approve system engineering documentation to ensure that processes and specifications meet system needs and are accurate, comprehensive, and complete
-Capture all interface designs in a common interface control format and store interface data in a commonly accessible repository

-Establish and follow a formal procedure for coordinating system integration activities among multiple teams, ensuring complete coverage of all interfaces
-Conduct and/or approve end-to-end system trade analyses to optimize system operations over its life-cycle through the proper balance of non-functional system performance areas
-Use validated models, simulations, and prototyping to mitigate risk and reduce cost of system development
-Ensure effective, periodic review and control of the evolving configuration of a system, both hardware and software components and associated documentation, during the life of the system
-Develop system design alternatives that consider life cycle cost, reuse, complexity, risk, system expansion and growth
-Develop alternative courses of action, workarounds and fall-back positions with a recommended course of action for each risk, and monitor and re-evaluate risks at appropriate milestones.
