An instructional design reference mission Tactical Disc Clearance System
MetadataShow full item record
This instructional guide provides learners with an example operational context for use in the specification, design, testing and analysis of a Tactical Disc Clearance System (TDCS), a fictitious system concept to address the problem of identifying and clearing hazardous objects from a designated area. A notional customer has provided expectations for the TDCS in the form of a Design Reference Mission (DRM). A DRM establishes an operational context, descriptions of the environment and situations in which solution concepts are expected to operate, an operational narrative of expected behavior including a sequence of operational activities and interactions between systems in an environment, and sample measures for establishing goals for mission success. This instructional DRM also provides an example of how to separate short and long term goals for prototype and production ready systems, respectively. This DRM is intended to serve as an underpinning for lessons in decision making using Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) analyses, including behavioral logic testing with simulation, resource utilization analysis, cost analysis, and analysis of alternative candidate operational and solution architectures to satisfy high level mission success requirements.
