Title: DOD-STD, Version: A, Date: Feb, Status: Cancelled, Desc: DEFENSE SYSTEM SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT (29 FEB ) [S/S BY. This handbook provides guidance in tailoring DOD-STDA, “Defense System Software Development: for use in concert with DOD-STDA, “DOD. On December 5th, it was superseded by MIL-STD, which merged DOD -STDA, DOD-STDA, and DOD-STD into a single document.

Figure illustrates the deliverable products and their relationships to reviews, audits, and system baselines. One reason that these mis-matches between specifications and end-user acceptance occur is directly related to the dkd used in developing a major software system.

One of the 2167z software development life cycle models has been named the Multidisciplinary Ddod Systems Engineering life cycle model by Andriole Identify areas of uncertainty which represent risk.

Finally, the evolutionary prototyping life cycle model is also becoming popular with some software developers and researchers. This is followed by an iterative design prototyping effort during preliminary and detailed design. Figure shows Boar’s concept of iteration within a life cycle using rapid prototyping.

Figure shows this model. The spiral model is illustrated in Figure This created problems matching design documents to the actual product. The standard continues at some length to describe those techniques, deliverables, reviews and audits required at each stage of the life cycle.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Often times, software developers fail to recognize the potential impact of documentation requirements which may be invoked for system developments via specifications and standards from other disciplines.

Department of Defense for published standards regarding the current thinking in software development life cycles and methodologies.

Little concern was given to life cycle, style, or anything other than performance. One particularly appropriate example of an associated discipline is that of human factors engineering.

If the Data Item Descriptions DIDs associated with A are flexible enough to allow a liberal interpretation of deliverable documentation, that is to say, allow a rapid prototype, drawing, or model to be submitted as an “interactive” document, then some of the ill effects of document-driven life cycles may be remedied by using Davis’ model.


This similarity warrants the same criticism eod Boehm leveled at the waterfall; that is, that fully elaborated documentation is inadequate completion criteria for early requirements and design phases for many classes of systems.

This page was last edited on 3 Septemberat These activities were implemented very early in the software development lifecycle 217a had a direct impact on the hardware and software architecture, user-system interface design, and operations sod of the system under development.

Concepts and Techniques. One point that Boehm makes is that improved process models and rapid prototyping techniques aid software engineers and developers in eliminating rework during the development life cycle.

Impact of DoD-StdA on Iterative Design Methodologies

During the evolutionary prototyping process, much more attention must be paid to maintainability, reliability and robustness of software. The realization that any life cycle dof be tailored to the application under development is demonstrated by Weitzel and Kerschberg These enhancements were 1 the introduction of feedback loops between adjacent stages onlyand 2 the initiation of prototyping in the form of a parallel step within requirements analysis.

Finally, it is clear that DoD-StdA was 22167a specifically developed with iterative design in mind, even though iteration is specifically mentioned in Paragraph 4. Society for Computer Simulation. One of the very first iterative software development life cycles employing prototyping was built around a set of tools and was described by Wasserman and Shewmake This results in imaginably low software productivity.

Attention to these issues during prototype development necessarily requires more cod and effort, leading to a greater inter-iteration interval.

This paper addresses the compatibility of these techniques with DoD-StdA. Sage and Palmerhowever, state that the disadvantages of the spiral 1267a exactly those features which are most useful in software development: Please click here to complete a registration request form.

The waterfall model is most commonly attributed to Royce and appears as shown in Figure Boehm also states, however, that the waterfall is not particularly good for many types of systems, particularly interactive ones in which end-users participate in design activities. Although the document states “the contractor is responsible for selecting software development methods for example, rapid prototyping “, it also required “formal reviews and audits” that seemed to lock the vendor into designing and documenting the system before any implementation began.


The Control Handbook, Second Edition: Finally, and most importantly for this discussion, Boehm asserts that partial implementations of the spiral are adaptable to most current models and are particularly helpful in reducing project risk.

Andriole suggests that this model is merely a bandaid for A, and that a new requirements-driven, top-down life cycle is needed. To illustrate this point, Boehm developed a hierarchy he refers to as his “software productivity improvement tree”. United States Department of Defense. Many instances can be cited in which complex software and hardware systems were delivered to end-users, and, while meeting the written specifications of the customer, were judged essentially unusable by the end-user community.

This model contains some of the components of Davis’ model, however, rapid prototyping commences much earlier, during system requirements activities. Comparing Figure with Figureit becomes clear that this and many other life cycle models are rooted in the waterfall. According to Boehmthe waterfall was a refinement of an earlier model known as the “stagewise” model and provided at least two major enhancements to earlier models.

As an example of how these additional deliverable documents might be used, Melde, Overmyer, and Trowbridge recently demonstrated how rapid prototyping and system simulation can be used together in the design of a large-scale interactive information system. With this model, the prototyping and iterative requirements activities are initiated by the systems engineering organization acting on behalf of the operational organization for which the system is being procured.

Many of these attempts were oriented toward the goal of building systems which fulfill user’s needs and provide accurate and valid requirements to developers for software design and coding activities.
