The system survivability KPP is applicable to manned systems and may be applicable to robotic and autonomous systems.
The materiel availability KPP was added to the JCIDS process in May 2007.
A KPP describes the minimum essential requirements for the capability for which the document is written.
The post-AoA review should establish mutual understanding of the operational capability needs in the ICD; the proposed KPPs in the draft CDD; and the maturity, feasibility, and risks of the preferred materiel solution.
These QRC systems will be modified to meet ARL KPPs and other requirements, with delivery beginning in FY17.
It also depends on transformational approaches, incentivized by FBCF and potentially required by energy KPPs but unfamiliar to most DOD contractors, that use integrative design to achieve expanding, not diminishing, returns to investments in energy efficiency--yielding major energy savings at lower capital cost without trading off nonenergy KPPs.
The specification of holistic, performance-based network requirements, coupled with three of the five KPPs involving NetOps directly or indirectly, requires a NetOps materiel solution that is integrated.
* Alignment of Soldier equipment to KPPs and attributes within each CDD and thereby establishing a proponent lead and consolidation of Soldier equipment; and

Once the requirements managers develop the operational requirements for a proposed new system, the managers triage those requirements into three priority levels: Key Performance Parameters (KPPs), Key System Attributes (KSAs) and Additional Performance Attributes (APAs).
There is no stated requirement that HSI be a "key performance parameter" or "key system attribute." KPPs and KSAs are defined by the Defense Acquisition University as "metrics, which contain those attributes or characteristics of a system that are considered critical or essential to the development of an effective military capability."
In this case, we used established KPPs and KSAs, or Performance Metrics, as a baseline.
