Abstract:

THE INTEGRATED SYSTEMS ANALYSIS (ISA) METHODOLOGY IS INTRODUCED AS A TOOL TO ASSIST THE WARFARE SYSTEMS ARCHITECT AND ENGINEER (WSA&E) IN DEVELOPING AND EVALUATING ASW WARFARE SYSTEMS ARCHITECTURES (ASW/WSAS). THE METHODOLOGY USES "SMART" FUNCTIONAL FLOW DIAGRAMS, TO MODEL THE FUNCTIONAL INTERRELATIONSHIPS AND INTERDEPENDENCIES BETWEEN THE KEY ELEMENTS IN THE ASW/WSA. SPECIAL SOFTWARE WILL BE USED TO ASSIST IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND ANALYSIS OF THE ASW/WSA MODEL. WITH THESE TOOLS, THE ISA METHODOLOGY PROVIDES A RIGOROUS, DYNAMIC AND LOGICALLY STRAIGHTFORWARD ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE THAT ENABLES UNRESTRICTED MANIPULATION OF THE ASW/WSA MODEL, ALLOWING THE WSA&E TO EXPLORE IN DETAIL THE FEATURES, VARIATIONS AND IMPLICATIONS OF ASW/WSAS. THE GOAL OF THE PROPOSED EFFORT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE APPLICABILITY AND UTILITY OF THE ISA METHODOLOGY TO THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF ASW/WSAS. TO ACHIEVE THIS AN EXAMPLE ASW/WSA MODEL OF SUFFICIENT DETAIL WILL BE DEVELOPED TO: I) ENABLE THE IDENTIFICATION, ANALYSIS AND PRIORITIZATION OF CRITICAL ACQUISITIONS, FORCE STRUCTURES AND REQUIRED OPERATIONAL FUNCTIONS NECESSARY FOR FULFILLMENT OF THE TOP LEVEL WARFARE REQUIREMENTS (TLWRS); AND II) ASSESS THE IMPACT OF MODIFYING ANY OF THE ASW/WSA ELEMENTS ON THE WSA AS A WHOLE IN TERMS OF MAINTAINING AN ASW FORCE STRUCTURE THAT IS CONSISTENT WITH TLWR FULFILLMENT.
