Abstract : Integrated digital system design and development of the hardware, software, and interfaces that integrate the avionic flight control, fire control, and man-machine display and control must emphasize the man-rated weapon system's availability and survivability. The scope of tasks including detailed trade studies such as CMOS/SOS versus ECL semiconductor use, and parallel pipelining versus multi-microprocessor architecture usually requires an engineering team with backgrounds from requirements and integration, electronics hardware, packaging, and software. System attributes of fault tolerance, fail safe, and fail soft operation requires total team adherence to a set of design, documentation, implementation, and test standards of which few have complete familiarity. Since use of these standards has prevented costly errors and overruns in procurement, and decreased maintenance costs over the life cycle, this paper shows how to make each effective contributor on the team understand the standards controlling performance and product specifications, change and configuration control, test planning, and test procedure generation for the other areas of expertise.
