Abstract : This paper provides an overview of the Systems Engineering Technique (SET), a methodology developed at IBM Federal Systems Division in Owego, New York. SET has been developed to effect improvement in both quality and productivity aspects in the development of avionics systems. The methodology synthesizes the best features of existing development methodologies into a single core procedure which is equally applicable throughout the systems development phases of complex systems. Six key areas emphasized by SET are discussed, and the concept of systems engineering measurements is introduced as the means to evaluate system quality and productivity. SET is being applied to the development of avionics systems at IBM Owego and has proven to be effective in improving specification quality. NATO Furnished. (rh)
