Program Management Support

Program Management Support

Trusted Advisors to Senior Government Officials

Engagement across the management spectrum. Data-driven analysis. Insightful review and recommendations. JHNA consultants help our government customers improve performance and schedule realism through early engagement and assessment.

For more than a decade, the JHNA team has helped plan and organize multi-disciplinary reviews of Major Defense Acquisition Programs, particularly in the Systems Engineering (SE) and Developmental Test and Evaluation (DT&E) domains. At major milestones and oversight decision points for programs, JHNA’s SE experts complete in-depth management and engineering evaluations to identify the most significant information, risks, and issues. The DT&E team conducts these functions as well but also represents the government by coordinating with agencies that conduct tests as well as observing and reporting on test events for major programs.

Not Afraid to Get Our Hands Dirty

We assist with all technical planning and technical management aspects of a program, to include conducting independent assessments of program strengths, issues, and risks with actionable recommendations to mitigate risks. We develop and measure technical performance metrics with a focus on software, reliability, integration, and manufacturing risk and readiness throughout the acquisition life cycle. We assist with documentation, including technical requirements documents, concepts of operations, program technical design and development plans, models, architectures, interfaces, interdependencies, and other systems specification documentation.

The Work Doesn’t End with Problem Identification

JHNA works tirelessly not only to identify challenges and schedule risks but also to develop actionable plans to overcome these hurdles. Our continuous collaboration and engagement with stakeholders gives us early insight to a program at risk of missing schedule or capability goals. Drawing on our collective decades of warfighting and acquisition experience, we develop courses of action to address these issues, harmonize them with stakeholders, and follow through until issue resolution. By taking ownership of the problem in support of our government customers, we help ensure that acquisition programs maximize system capabilities and program performance while minimizing program risk.

Expertise Across Numerous Weapons Systems

JHNA currently supports multiple program areas including rotary wing, unmanned air and ground, land warfare, naval surface and sub-surface warfare, fixed wing aircraft, and tactical and strategic communications.
