Abstract:

This report documents the Mission Area Analysis MAA conducted to identify mission and system characteristics that impact software quality. Characteristics were used to develop a set of rules that link characteristics to quality factors or characteristics to characteristics. This analysis did not determine what the actual software quality requirements are for the systems reviewed. This determination is made during a consultation with the Assistant for Specifying Quality Software ASQS. The main objectives of the MAA were to 1 develop mission profiles for the five Air Communications C3 and Force- Mission Management 2 determine what software quality factors are impacted by the respective missions and 3 create rules and questions for use in ASQS. The MAA tried, with limited success, to move the Software Quality Framework from the theoretical to general practice by creating processes for determining software quality goals and placing them into an expert system.
