Abstract:

THIS RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP AN EXTENSIVE SET OF QUALITY METRICS FOR THE EVALUATION OF IDEF(O) MODEL QUALITY, IN PARTICULAR, AND FOR THE EVALUATION OF SYSTEMS ANALYSIS MODEL QUALITY, IN GENERAL. THE RESEARCH IS THE CONTINUATION OF INVESTIGATIONS ALREADY PERFORMED BY THE PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR, MR. WILLIAM R. WILLIAMSON, UNDER INTERNAL COMPANY FUNDING AND UNDER CONTRACT F33657-91-C-2148. THE SPECIFIC METHODOLOGY, IDEF(O), WAS CHOSEN FOR THE RESEARCH BECAUSE OF ITS DIRECT APPLICABILITY TO MISSION AREA PLANNING. IDEF(O) IS THE MOST WIDELY USED METHODOLOGY WITHIN THE DOD FOR CONCEPT DEFINITION AND FOR REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS AND SPECIFICATION. THE KEY PRODUCT OF THIS RESEARCH IS A SET OF QUALITY METRICS WHICH GOES FAR BEYOND EDITING CONSIDERATIONS SUCH AS LABELING, DRAFTING, AND COMPLIANCE WITH MODELING RULES. THE METRICS WILL EVALUATE MODEL DECOMPOSITION QUALITY, PRECEDENCE RELATIONSHIPS, CONSTRAINT VS FLOW CONFLICTS, GENERIC VS SPECIFIC CONTENT, AND MODEL COMPLEXITY. THE RESEARCH PRODUCTS WILL BE SPECIFIC AND GENERIC QUALITY METRICS, METHODOLOGY FORMALIZATION ENHANCEMENTS, IDENTIFICATION OF MACHINE-DETECTABLE QUALITY FACTORS, ALGORITHM DEFINITION FOR WHOLE DIAGRAM AND WHOLE MODEL QUALITY EVALUATION, AND TRAINING MATERIALS.
