Abstract:

Goals of this research Develop the Demonstration and Analysis Tool for Agile SE Management DATASEMa flexible modeling and simulation capability to 1. Enable realistic experiments to understand how governance models, organizational structures and work flows interact across a system of systems. 2. Provide a framework to calibrate assumptions of performance. 3. Integrated experiment generation tools DATASEM is intended as an initial instantiation of an evolving and expanding set of integrated tools to support research and transition. Results of RT-159 activities 1. The suite of software developed and delivered in December of 2015 was determined to have fundamental defects that caused it to improperly represent the concepts as originally intended. 2. The defects were largely caused by incomplete or ambiguous definitions of several of the model mechanism concepts. 3. A more definitive description of the concepts was created and delivered in a technical report. 4. A data model describing information produced by the simulation was developed to support the new descriptions. 5. There were insufficient resources to complete the development of the suite to align with the refined definitions. 6. An experiment based on data from an aerospace industry source was defined as a MS project by a Stevens graduate student the stand-alone version of the software was modified sufficiently to incorporate mechanisms to support the students experiment. 7. Updated software is available through www.sercuarc.org. 8. One journal article and one conference paper were published. A second conference paper will be produced based on the results of the experiment.
