Abstract
Systems Development (SD) processes demonstrate a need for improvement, particularly to increase the frequency with which systems succeed in real world settings. Cognitive Systems Engineering (CSE) offers numerous principles, methods, and tools that are well-suited to addressing areas in which SD is currently most weak (e.g., handling complexity and supporting the design phase). In response to this opportunity, CHI Systems, Inc. proposes to develop CogLink, an SD model that integrates strengths of existing SD models with relevant CSE practices. The proposed Phase I effort will focus on the development of Command and Control, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C2ISR) technologies. To derive the CogLink model, we propose to conduct a documentation analysis and case-based interviews with SD and acquisitions professionals to identify obstacles and affordances associated with current SD models; assess CSE methods as they address the obstacles and the identified opportunities; and develop a structured representation of C2ISR systems acquisition processes. The resulting Phase I products will include the CogLink model for an integrated SD process, recommendations for developing and adapting methods and tools contained within CogLink, and a structured plan for developing CogLink during the Phase II effort
