Abstract
PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A NEW METHODOLOGY BY WHICH NAVY C2 SUPPORT SYSTEMS REQUIREMENTS CAN BE PRECISELY DESCRIBED AND QUANTIFIED. THE METHOD WILL USE DATA FROM OPERATIONAL FLOW DIAGRAMS AND SIMILAR SOURCES. IT WILL DESCRIBE OPERATIONAL SEQUENCES AND DERIVATIVE INFORMATION FLOWS AND INFORMATION HANDLING ACTIVITIES. THE METHOD WILL ANALYZE THESE SEQUENCES USING NEWLY DEVELOPED TOOLS THAT WILL INCLUDE AN OPERATIONAL TRANSACTION TAXONOMY, AN INFORMATION LEXICON AND SYNTAX, TRANSLATION PROCEDURES BETWEEN THE TWO, QUANTIFYING PARAMETERS AND QUALITATIVE SPECIFICATIONS, AND A NODAL AND FUNCTIONAL DECOMPOSITION SCHEME. THE RESULT, WHEN APPLIED TO WARFARE AND SUPPORT AREAS (DURING PHASE II), WILL BRIDGE THE CURRENT GAP BETWEEN HIGH-LEVEL, END-TO-END, TLWR-BASED OUTPUT ORIENTED REQUIREMENTS GENERATED BY THE OFD METHODOLOGY, AND THE DETAILED SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS NEEDED FOR SYSTEM ENGINEERING.
