Abstract:

This is one of a series of six engineering handbooks prepared for and used by the engineering staff at Picatinny Arsenal for the STARS technology transfer demonstration. The handbooks define the engineering process and algorithms that will be used in Cleanroom projects. They are designed to provide support to trained engineers using Cleanroom Engineering, not to substitute for training. This handbook, Volume 4, explains the set of specific tasks performed by the Cleanroom Specification Team for each cycle of a project. Specification tasks are described and the relationship among tasks are defined. The Cleanroom specification teams mission is to create the system specification in six specification volumes. Templates are proposed as recommended formats for the presentation of information and tasks results. Techniques for revising the specifications throughout the system life cycle are described. The Cleanroom process model for software system development projects is presented in Volume 1 - Cleanroom Process Overview - of this series of Cleanroom Handbooks. This handbook, Volume 4, describes the activities of the Specification Team for each cycle of project development. The specification activity may include the preparation of both system and software specifications, depending on the needs and status of the project. Specifications define the requirements placed on the system so it can satisfy its mission and the behavior the system must exhibit to fulfill the assigned requirements. A system specification defines requirements and behavior for a solution which integrates some combination of hardware, software, communications, human behavior, etc. Certification, Cleanroom, Cleanroom engineering, Development, Management, Software development, Specification.
