Abstract:

This paper describes a number of key milestones and techniques that should be accomplished in order to produce cost effective, embedded computing systems. It stresses the necessity of improved project management to effect an integrated hardwaresoftware system. Improved project management requires a thorough understanding and implementation of the DoDMIL standards and specifications. If Program Project Managers from both the government and contractor are knowledgeable in, and motivated to follow, the approved standards specifications, embedded computer resources, i.e., equipment, computer programs, personnel, facilities, and logistics, will be provisioned at lower costs and per the requirements allocated to each resource. The paper will emphasize the need for systems engineering, work breakdown structures, the systems development process, documentation milestones, DTE for hardwaresoftware, and integration leading to system stones, DTE for hardwaresoftware, and integration leading to system certification. This can only be effective via standards compliance. Author
