SYSTEM ENGINEERING AND INTEGRATION IN CLCS
System Engineering And Integration

System Design
• System Level Requirements • Hardware Architecture • Software Architecture • Performance Analysis

Strategic Engineering
• Delivery Planning • Thread Definition

System Integration and Test
• System Level Integration • System Level Testing • Delivery Management • System Analysis

Specialty Engineering
• Quality Assurance • Human Factors • Quality Engineering

2

CLCS PROJECT LEVEL REVIEWS
• Architectural Baseline Review - Review Provided at the Discretion of the Project Manager to Capture a “Snapshot” of the System Architecture • Design Panel - Reviews Held Throughout the Development Cycle the Incrementally meet the traditional “MIL-STD-2167” Preliminary and Critical Design Reviews • Hardware Status Reviews - Reviews Provided at Those Times in the Project Development Cycle Which Coincide With Significant Hardware and Software Procurement Activities

SYSTEM ENGINEERING AND INTEGRATION TERMINOLOGY
System Thread A collection of Hardware and Software when combined and integrated as part of a CLCS delivery provides a system wide capability Threads imply :
• • Quality Oversight in the development process User Acceptance Testing where applicable

Gateways

Real Time Critical Network

Command Control Processor

Data Distribution Processor

Archive And Retrieval Display and Control Network

Human Computer Interface

Thread Statement of Work –A conceptual description of a capability that considers the implementation of the System Level and Product Level Requirements

• SLS, SDD

• CSCI/HWCI Requirements and Design Docs

CLCS DESIGN PANEL PROCESS

Process is Managed by The Design Panel Chairman Minutes are kept by Design Panel Secretary

Design Panels Provide the System Engineering and Development Community a Method of Communicating. Allow the User Communities to Gain Significant Insight Throughout the Incrementally Help to Meet the Intent of Preliminary Design Reviews and Critical Design Reviews As Discussed in MILSTD-2167, MIL-STD-498

CLCS DESIGN PANEL PROCESS - THREE STEPS
Concept Design Panel Represents a “Contract” Between System Engineering and the Development Communities
– – – System Engineering Presentation Representing Concept of Thread Statement of Work Implementation Represents Development Community Work Assessment for a Particular System Thread Captures and Documents Development Schedule

Requirement Design Panel
– – – – CSCI and HWCI Based Presentation Equivalent to a ‘mini’ Preliminary Design Review Per CSCI and HWCI Emphasizes Product Level Specifications in Response to all System Thread Impacts and Dependencies Identifies all External Interfaces and Top Level Data Flow Diagrams

Detailed Design Panel
– – – CSCI and HWCI Based Presentation Equivalent to a ‘mini’ Critical Design Review Per CSCI and HWCI Emphasizes the external design of the CSCI and HWCI
