Abstract:

This document reports on the feasibility of developing a decision support tool that could aid decision makers in formulating policies for the use of software standards and strategies for technology insertion. During the first phase (1983-1984) a white paper was completed which provided a conceptual framework for examining the role of standards in the MCCR acquisition process. During the second phase (1985-1986), this conceptual framework was translated into a prototype decision support tool. This tool provided the ability to simulate the effect of selected standardization policies on related technology and Mission Critical Computer Resources (MCCR) costs, thus demonstrating the feasibility of modeling the linkages among DoD, standards policies, industry, technology and MCCR costs. The first scenario simulated the role of the current policy for the use of Ada as the only higher order language for the development of MCCR software. The other two scenarios examined cost effective strategies for inserting Ada and its related software engineering environments into the MCCR software production and maintenance process. The findings from these simulations indicate that certain strategies/policies concerning the utilization of Ada have a powerful influence on MCCR software costs.
