This project uses the WinWin system definition paradigm, the WinWin Spiral Model, and Internet-related software technology to develop distributed collaborative negotiation aids and interactive analysis tools for better and faster definition complex evolutionary software-intensive systems. It uses Air Force satellite ground systems as its primary domain for domain exploitation, experimentation, and technology transition. The project also serves as integrator for DARPA-EDCS technology in the Rationale Capture cluster.
The project's model-driven approach integrates models of the domain (satellite ground system), life cycle process (WinWin Spiral Model), system definition products (MIL-STD-498 extended by prototypes, domain models, evolution specifications, and rationale capture), system definition satisfaction criteria (stakeholder win-win), architecture (DARPA ADL's and UML), and architecture-based attributes such as cost, schedule, performance, reliability, and interoperability (COCOMO® and associated parametric models; Architect's Automated Assistant (AAA)).
The project has four major tasks:
