Abstract : Physical description: 1 VHS video; 1/2 in.; col.; sd.; mono.; 59 mins.; standard playback sp. The Consortium's Synthesis methodology for software reuse on Navy Flight Training Systems is the foundation for an approach being used by Boeing and a U.S. Navy/STARS team to develop software for the Navy's T-35C flight simulator trainer. A major reuse strategy of the program is the use of a two life-cycle model, requiring that the traditional application development life cycle by front-ended with a separate, but coordinated, life cycle that created process-driven software assets for a defined product line(or family) of systems. The mastering of variations in requirements between similar systems is at the heart of Synthesis. The Synthesis is used in a comprehensive, leveraged mode, fully deploying the Synthesis methodology throughout the program. Rockwell's use of Synthesis to creat a domain engineering approach to developing interprocessor communication and message handling systems for commercial clients.
