Abstract:

Under Phase 1 SBIR funding we have outlined an Open Architecture for Testability and Maintainability related tools. We have developed a strawman neutral format for dependency models - the most important and most difficult component of the proposed open architecture, and we have formalized that model using EXPRESS. We have shown in detail how our proposed standards fit synergistically into the framework being developed by the IEEE SCC20 committee, and we have received their provisional approval to proceed under the formal sponsorship of SCC20 which is an ANSI approved standards developer. Most importantly, we have coordinated with a large group of vendors and users of testability and maintainability related tools both inside and outside of DOD, and have proven that there is considerable support for such standards.
