Abstract:

The problem with acquiring and destroying Scud Launchers during Desert Storm provided a means for cadets to apply the systems design process learned in SE401 to a real world problem. The Systems Design process is two-staged with a Feasibility Study and the Preliminary Design. The Feasibility Study includes the Needs Analysis, Problem Definition, Synthesis of Solutions, and Feasibility Screening. The result of the Feasibility Study is a list of feasible alternatives that meet the clients needs. The Preliminary Design includes Modeling of the Criteria, Selection of Alternatives, Sensitivity Analysis, Compatibility Analysis, Optimization of Parameters, and Prediction of Performance. The result of the Preliminary Design is the best alternative to meet the clients needs.
