"Today's teams operate in environments where they need a global understanding of the unfolding development effort. This understanding needs to be integrated in real-time to allow planning, control, and execution with a minimum number of people andequipment. The challenge is to provide the right information at the right time, disseminated and displayed in the right way, so that [teams can do] the right things at the right time in the right way. Modus Operandi, Inc., proposes the Collaborative DataAccess (CODA) system, an open network-based environment to integrate legacy systems into a new object-oriented (OO) system. Once software and hardware systems are integrated and a common interface is developed between hardware and software components andsystems, high-level functions supporting multi-contractor activities such as program status and oversight, complex analysis and reporting, acquisition, system development, and collaborative heterogeneous information access can easily be developed. TheCODA approach is to develop a "Wizard-like" tool to take COTS, GOTS, and legacy tools which are used for program management, design, analysis, HLA modeling & simulation, manufacturing, and testing and integrate them into an open environment based on theCommon Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) which supports tool interoperability and geographic distribution. - More productive creation, evaluation, and sharing of designs by geographicall
