Abstract
OUR OVERALL GOAL IS TO COMMERCIALIZE THE DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING DESIGN SYSTEM (DCDS) METHODOLOGY (PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED BY TRW FOR THE US.S. ARMY BMDATC). DCDS SUPERSEDES CURRENT METHODS WITH REQUIREMENTS-TO-CODE SUPPORT FOR REAL TIME DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS. THE SYSTEM DESCRIPTION DATABASE (SDD) IMPLEMENTS AN UNDERLYING REPRESENTATION BASED ON ELEMENT RELATIONSHIP ATTRIBUTE AND GRAPH MODEL OF COMPUTATION PRINCIPLES. OUR PHASE I OBJECTIVES FOCUS ON THE PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT OF A SDD DATABASE WHICH CONTAINS THE COMPOSITION OF SYSTEM AND SOFTWARE ELEMENTS, THEIR RELATIONSHPS, AND ATTRIBUTES (SUCH AS UDF COVERSHEET, SOFTWARE MODULE METRICS, INPUT/OUTPUT DEFINITIONS, TRACEABILITY POINTERS, ETC.). INTERNAL DATA STRUCTURES PROVIDE REPRESENTATIONS THAT PERMIT GENERATION OF GANE & SARSON, YOURDON, STATE TRANSITION, N-SQUARED, AND HIERARCHY CHART DIAGRAMS. SDD SUPPORT SYSTEMS AND SOFTWARE ENGINEERING BY PROVIDING: COMPUTER SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION ITEM (CSCI) DOCUMENTATION, CHANGE TRACKING MECHANISMS EMBEDDED IN THE DATA STRUCTURES, MAINTENANCE OF SOURCE REQUIREMENTS, AND SUPPORT FOR THE FIVE INTERLOCKING SPECIFICATION LANGUAGES COMPRISING THE DCDS METHODOLOGY.
