Abstract:

K.C. King presents the BoeingNavySTARS demonstration of the Consortiums Synthesis methodology for software reuse on Navy Flight Training Systems. Synthesis is the foundation for an approach being used by Boeing and a U.S. NavySTARS team to develop software for the Navys T-34C flight simulator trainer. A major reuse strategy of the program is the use of a two life-cycle model, requiring that the traditional application development life cycle be front-ended with a separate, but coordinated, life cycle that creates process- driven software assets for a defined product line or family of systems. The mastering of variations in requirements between similar systems is at the heart of Synthesis. Mr. King describes how they have used Synthesis in a comprehensive, leveraged mode, fully deploying the Synthesis methodology throughout the program.
