Abstract : This Final Report describes the work performed in the area of System Engineering Automation (SEA) for Distributed Systems for Contract No. N00014-91- C-0183. The work focused on researching the exchange of information between design capture and design optimization techniques as part of the DESTINATION project. Design Structuring and Allocation Optimization (DESTINATION) is an ongoing research project at the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) to provide a new methodology for design optimization and trade off analysis of real-time systems. This project produced a version of the enhanced and extended DESTINATION Interface Specification (DIS). The need for DIS arises from the inherent adaptiveness of the DESTINATION system to a wide range of source and target tools. DIS not only allows DESTINATION to coexist with various systems, but also dictates standards for a comprehensive way of capturing design information. The basic structure of DIS reflects a method of extracting/incorporating design information that is otherwise not available across a collection of tools. DIS accommodates the identification of additional design information, allowing for customization of the source and target tools. The focus of the DIS research and development work is currently in the area of system logical modelling and implementation modelling.
