Abstract:

The objective of this research project is to develop better methods of conducting system trades involving aspects of the system that are difficult to quantify, such as resilience and safety, the cost, schedule and performance impacts of such trades. This technical report summarizes the work done in phase 2 of RT46. The focus of Phase 2 is to apply the methods and tools developed in Phase 1 on problems relevant to DoD, ideally using the information available from development of a large weapon system, or a large automated information system, Ideally, the SERC will work with the system developer to gain a deep understanding of the strengths and limitations of the tradespace tools methods developed under phase 1. Phase 2 activities will expand the set of ilities represented in the tradespace. The information learned from Phase 2 will be used to improve the frameworks and tools developed in the phase activities.
