In the past NAVAIR had a CD with all the SETR Program Event Checklists. Each had an Excel spread sheet that you filled out to determine if you were ready for the Event and a supporting document that describes all the details of the Event, both entry and exit criteria. The picture above has the link to the current spread sheets.
This approach to the Integrated Master Plan spelled out explicitly what "done" looked and there was no way to skip around the check list and call the work "done," without passing all the items with a GREEN. I've requested from NAVAIR the latest, but looks like it has been expanded to be DOD level now.
This paradigm is at the heart of describing what "done" looks like in units of measure for both the buyer and the seller. Measures of Effectiveness for the buyer and Measures of Performance for the seller.
