Abstract
As the Air Force (AF) begins the progression of applying systems engineering from the top-level definition of the system architecture down to a granular level of design it is very important to also realize the changes that will be taking place through Technology Insertion initiatives. Continuous system engineering is required to preserve the integrity of a system, facilitate the development of new requirements and implementation of developed solutions in an ever-changing technical environment. The process for adoption of engineering changes is very similar ranging from changes on the supply chain to implementing new technologies for legacy applications. There exists a need for a framework that can provide detailed analysis of the mechanical, electronic, and material properties of aerospace component/parts and technology assets that are currently in place within the Air Force and allow simulation and analysis of potential changes that may be brought about through Technology Insertion initiatives. BENEFIT: Anautics proposes to develop the Engineering Decision Support Framework (EDSF) which will integrate systems thinking with systems engineering and program management processes across the entire supply chain. Every product design has implications for each party which participates in the lifecycle. It is strategically critical to understand these implications and communicate their impact, so stakeholders are able to optimize multiple operational and engineering considerations including the products market appeal, cost effectiveness, manufacturability, safety, disposability and regulatory compliance, ease of use, maintainability and total quality. Just as importantly, system developers need this level of understanding early in the product lifecycle before changes becomes too costly or too late to make a difference in the performance, quality, or functionality of the system.
