Abstract:

An electronic physical security system will often fail to meet users expectations. This thesis explores the process for developing, implementing, and testing an electronic security solution. This was accomplished by asking the following question What is a simple and repeatable systems engineering process that promotes an effective electronic physical security system An effective solution was not identified within the literature. The Requirements, Alternative, Design, Implementation, Testing, and Commissioning RADITC process was developed as an alternative solution for the development and validation -- from requirements to testing -- of an effective physical security solution. This new process is based on two existing processes. The first is commercial best practices, as articulated by Thomas J Whittle. The second is the more complex life cycle management process used by the Department of Defense DoD and the Department of Homeland Security DHS. The life cycle management process provides concepts that are missing from the commercial best practices process in use today. The joining of these two processes results in an effective, easy to use, and repeatable process.
