Abstract
Modus Operandi proposes to develop Inception, a collaborative intelligent wiki for searching, gathering, interpreting, validating, capturing and documenting the characterization of stakeholder needs for Modeling and Simulation systems. The first phase or the inception phase of the systems engineering process performed by the MDA Directorate of Engineering, Simulation Architecture (MDA/DESA) is the most elusive and dynamic concept of the system development life cycle. The results of this phase, referred to as"stakeholder needs"or scope"include context, functional objectives, informational objectives, performance objectives, and priority as they are relative to M & S. The scope is then used in the next phase of the systems engineering process to develop"build-to"requirements. The lack of a clear scope often leads to unrealistic life-cycle cost estimates and inadequate scheduling which may result in inefficient planning and execution, limited oversight, and increased cost and performance risks. The Inception tool will increase the quality of documented project scopes and decrease the cost of creating a well written project scope through an innovative combination of wiki and advanced semantic analytics technology.
