Abstract:

This paper presents a high-level modeling and simulation MS approach that is intended to be used early in the systems engineering lifecycle. The approach leverages behavior modeling techniques for designing executable function flows i.e. functional simulation. It is built on system architecture products such as DoD Architecture Framework DoDAF products and is referred to as Executable Architecture EA. EA is designed to provide a higher-level view or abstraction of certain definable processes. Besides being an effective way of disseminating architecture visions to a wide range of stakeholders, EA provides the following benefits Validation of the system architecture based on operational processes Insight into the military usefulness of the system Generation of first order, end-to-end performance metrics Discovery of hidden or overlooked requirements A way to document, validate, refine and communicate strategic objectives An early construct for trade analyses in the systems engineering space
