Abstract:

The Specification Technology Guidebook provides guidelines for the selection of requirements and design specification methodologies appropriate to various software development environments and various types of software. The guidelines cover the requirements analysis architectural and detailed design phases. These guidelines are incorporated in a table-driven format that define increasingly thorough and formal levels of specification based on a software projects significance level. Significance level measures the relative importance of an individual project based on considerations of quality, software, and project. The guidebook provides summary descriptions of specification methodologies. It includes a method for selecting automated tools to support the selected methodologies. It includes typical paragraphs that can be included in Air Force software development statements-of-work to specify the use of specification methodologies by the contractor during the requirements analysis and design phases of a contracted development. Three example problems for C3I software development projects are included. A primary consideration imposed on each example is compatibility with the Ada programming language. The other considerations used for system requirements and design of the C3I problems were derived from actual requirements set forth in C3I RFPs,, and working knowledge of the requirements for C3I software and system projects gained by Boeing Aerospace engineers during the last decade.
