Research Institution
The Disturbance-Optics-Controls-Structures (DOCS) suite is an Integrated Development Environment for assembly of multidisciplinary analyses into an accurate dynamic integrated model for analysis of performance and margins and identification of resource-optimal redesign. The suite is innovative because it combines validated design tools, or modules, for detailed system analysis with an automation layer that drives the analysis tools, permitting rapid evaluation of the trade space between many highly coupled design variables. The analysis modules are general enough to be applicable for the complete program life cycle, from conceptual design to operational analysis. The automation layer handles the translation of high-level systems requirements into module-level design space constraints, and buffers the detailed analysis results. The suite encompasses an archiving function, which enables the time evolution of the design to be explicitly tracked, facilitating the systems designer?s understanding of the design space, and providing a formal means to manage risk. The combination of detailed modeling accuracy with the automation necessary for trading a large design space provides analysis depth and breadth, leading to an optimal systems design.
