Abstract
Modus Operandi proposes to continue the development of Inception, a collaborative intelligent service for searching, gathering, interpreting, validating, capturing, and documenting the characterization of stakeholder needs for Modeling and Simulation (M&S) systems. The first phase or the inception phase of the systems engineering process performed by the MDA Directorate of Engineering, Simulation Architecture (MDA/DES) 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 results from the inception phase are documented in requirements models or as unstructured or semi structured text as a requirements document. This information is difficult to share and can lead to duplication of effort across multiple MDA efforts. The Inception tool will increase ability to capture the needs, existing capabilities, and identified technologies from the semi-structured documentation and mapping the information into a semantic model. This normalized information will increase the ability to search across the documentation sent for key concepts as well as key words, and provide correlated information that can be leveraged for predictive analysis of needs, capabilities, and technology trends.
