Presentation Transcript


1. Estimation of System Complexity Michael Ernstoff Raytheon Systems El Segundo, CA 90245 [email protected]

2. Overview Motivation and Factors Contributing to Complexity Quantifying and Entering Complexity Factors Algorithms for Computing Complexity Results, Conclusions and Recommendations

3. Motivation Ultimate Objective Required New Approach Existing tools (PRICE and SEER) deficient. They are not configured to reflect the statement-of-work tailoring often necessary to match scope to budget. (Risk is a separate issue for program management.) Tools based on regression analysis of history inappropriate. Relevant historical data is too sparse and often contaminated.

4. Motivation Quantifying Complexity is Essential Product Line - Known… that of baseline program. System Complexity Requirements Volatility Schedule Aggressiveness Platform Staffing etc.

5. Resource Estimation Process Overview

6. Quantifying Complexity Factor Requires evaluating interfaces What does a system engineer do? Coordinates negotiation of interfaces between subsystems Formally specifies and tests subsystem interfaces Assembles subsystems and verify performance at interfaces.

7. Quantifying Complexity Factors Impact of system decomposition

8. Quantifying Complexity Factors Identifying & Rating Interfaces

9. Quantifying Complexity Factors Rating individual sub-to-sub system interactions

10. Quantifying Complexity Factors Indicating Repeats, Re-use and Learning

11. Quantifying Complexity Factors Impact of Repeats On j-k Interactions
