Abstract : CSESAW '94 is exploring system level design synthesis and assessment capabilities for large, complex systems. These capabilities will facilitate the development of such systems from informal system requirements, through the design phase prototyping, and into implementation and post deployment. Component products produced by these capabilities are specifications that subenvironments will receive. The focus of the workshop is the development and integration of these multiple technologies and the exploration of the creation of a system level engineering discipline with support technologies to provide potential high payoff solutions to the difficult problems encountered by designers, developers, and maintainers of real-time systems. Further emphasis is on resolving system level technology issues that cut across component boundaries, such as those associated with system behavior requirements of real-time, fault tolerance, cost, and security. Specifically, the theme of this year's workshop is system engineering synthesis for evolutionary systems. Issues addressed within the workshop include requirements specification, requirements traceability, design capture, design evaluation, design optimization, security engineering, and dependability engineering. Panel discussions will emphasize essential domain models for long-life evolutionary systems, new paradigms in system engineering, and early evaluation metrics of system developments.
