Engineering software for interoperability through use of enterprise architecture techniques
Parenti, Jennifer L.
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis proposes a new structured methodology for incorporating the use of enterprise architecture techniques into the DoD software acquisition process, to provide a means by which interoperability requirements can be captured, defined, and levied at the appropriate time in a system's development. It discusses the necessary components of these architectural models, how these models capture our interoperability needs, and how these interoperability needs form the basis for meaningful dialogue between the DoD's acquisition and planning communities. While this methodology is applicable to many domains and functional areas, for the purposes of this thesis, the focus will be solely on software systems (including systems with embedded software) within the DoD.
