Quality software engineering is crucial for the Department of Defense. The ability to engineer software that meets cost, schedule, and technical goals is a continuous challenge for both the commercial and government sector. This thesis presents an engineering model based on lean principles. The lean principles provide a foundation for a system that is based on value, communication, teamwork, efficient use of resources, elimination of waste and continuous process improvement. This system is flexible and can be tailored to meet the needs of projects of varying size and complexity. The model is intended to serve as a template for organizations to evolve their software engineering system to meet the needs of their customers.
