Raytheon Missile Systems Receives Perfect Score In Audit

Passes All Guidelines In DCMA Earned Value Management Systems Review

On the heels of its second successful test of its SM-6 interceptor missile, Raytheon announced its Missile Systems business recently completed an Earned Value Management Systems compliance review by the Defense Contract Management Agency. DCMA auditors found that Missile Systems passed all 32 guidelines.

"Missile Systems is the first defense contractor of its size to achieve such success and is now a benchmark for the industry," said Dr. Taylor W. Lawrence, president of Raytheon Missile Systems. "Earning this award validates the thoroughness and integrity of our processes and reinforces our promise to always meet our customer commitments with the best possible program management and performance."

During the past several months, Missile Systems achieved the following Earned Value milestones:

Deployed an EV training and certification program - more than 900 Missile Systems employees are now EV certified

Developed and deployed an integrated automated tool suite for all programs, which ensures data integrity

Deployed an internal surveillance approach to assess and improve program schedules, which parallels DCMA criteria

Licensed an automated scheduling tool to subcontractors, resulting in integrated Raytheon and subcontractor EV data

Partnered with the DCMA and other customers to ensure EV is being used to help bring timely and affordable capabilities to the warfighter

After the compliance review, the DCMA audit team congratulated Missile Systems on the substantial investment the company has made in processes, tools and training.

"Missile Systems is now focused on deploying additional automated tools and new processes to make it easier and faster for program teams to manage their activities," said Lil Vayhinger, Raytheon Missile Systems vice president of Program Management Excellence.
