Abstract:

This report discusses the application of system engineering principles to the development of computer programs and associated elements of large systems. Using the road map approach and basic concepts established by the Air Force, it describes step-by-step events during the conceptual, definition, acquisition, and operational phases of a system life cycle. Technical milestones in system computer program analysis, design and developments are identified and related to associated activities and requirements in the areas of test and evaluation, configuration management, data management, and human factors. Procedures outlined in the guide are based on experience with a number of large electronic systems developed for the Air Force. Emphasis in the description is placed on aspects of the technical process which have significant implications for system program planning and management.
