Abstract:

THE SOFTWARE SYSTEM ENGINEERING PROCESS OF CONVERTING CONCEPTS INTO REQUIREMENTS, AND THEN REQUIREMENTS INTO AN IMPLEMENTED SYSTEM IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY COMPLEX. CURRENT METHODS FALL SHORT OF THEIR OBJECTIVES IN HANDLING THIS COMPLEXITY. STRUCTURED FUNCTIONAL ANALYSIS (SFA) LACKS LINKAGE TO DELIVERABLE PRODUCTS - AN END ITEM MUST BE BUILT. ON THE OTHER HAND, THE NEWER OBJECT ORIENTED REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS (OORA) AND DESIGN (OOD) DO NOT PROVIDE A SUFFICIENT DEFINITION OF PERFORMANCE - BESIDES WELL DEFINED COMMUNICATIONS, THE OBJECT MUST DO SOMETHING. AND NEITHER METHOD ADDRESSES THE STANDARD LEVELS OF SPECIFICATION - REAL WORLD SYSTEMS ARE AUTHORIZEED AND DEVELOPED IN DISCRETE STEPS OR STAGES. TO SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS, SCI-SO IS COUPLING MIL-STD DOCUMENTATION CONCEPTS WITH SFA AND OORA/OOD, ALONG WITH SCI-SO'S SYSTEM EVENT TAXONOMY (SET) INTO A UNIFIED REQUIREMENTS TOOLSET CALLED SERAT (SYSTEM ENGINEERING REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS TECHNIQUE). SERAT IS AN INNOVATIVE PROCEDURE AND TOOLSET WHICH WILL PERMIT CONTROL AND QUALITY MANAGEMENT OF THE SOFTWARE SYSTEM ENGINEERING PROCESS.
