Abstract:

Recent experience at ESD in acquiring complex computer based systems has identified a deficiency in existing systems management techniques in the area of computer programs. The systems management techniques generally in use were designed for equipment systems and need to be expanded to include computer programs. This paper describes an ESD approach to adapting existing AFSC system management techniques to computer programs. Procedures for insuring system compatibility, design integrity and technical control are discussed and a method for achieving design verification and qualification is presented. Particular emphasis is placed on the relationship of these techniques to computer programs as elements of large computer based systems. The application of these techniques is illustrated through selected examples taken from current ESD system procurements.
