Abstract:

A methodology is presented for the development and management of software specifications. The technique is built upon a language RSL readable both by a computer and by man, and a set of tools termed collectively the Requirements Engineering and Validation System REVS. The tools provided for retention of all requirements in a relational data base from which documentation, consistency analyses, and simulations may be constructed automatically. The methodology systematically develops the specification from source documentation at the system level, documenting omissions and errors of the source materials in the process. The produced requirements are provably consistent, and may be validated against system objectives through the generated simulation. The entire process is subject to systematic management through definable and verifiable milestones supported by REVS. Author
