Project Description

DART

Developmental Automated Relationship Tracking Tool

SimVentions created the Developmental Automated Relationship Tracking (DART) tool to expand automated test capabilities to all phases of development, including the requirements, system design, code, and implementation stages.

“DART leads to improved productivity, a higher quality design; and ultimately, a better product.”

Engineering Discipline with Traceability

SimVentions created the Developmental Automated Relationship Tracking (DART) tool to expand automated test capabilities to all phases of development, including the requirements, system design, code, and implementation stages. DART introduces automation within the engineering process for the discovery of incongruent data between requirements, design, software, and test communities as early as possible. It utilizes built-in visual cues and automated metrics along with automated traceability, facilitates decisionmaking, and enables roll-up analysis of program status.

PowerPoint

Automated Tracking and Mapping

Dart automates the tracking and mapping of system development from requirements through design, code, and testing to provide integrated, diagnostic, and predictive decision-making.

PowerPoint

Builds Visual Models

Builds a visual model of objects and interactions within the systems engineering process, building continuity between the beginning and end of product development.

PowerPoint

Progress Assurance

Dart provides software architects a sense of correctness moving forward to preliminary design.

PowerPoint

NMCI Compatible

Dart is fully compatible with the Navy Marine Corps Intranet system.

WHAT THE PM GAINS

  • An immediate assessment of technical risk and quality evaluation throughout lifecycle
  • Assurance that there are no unknown orphan requirements or rogue code present
  • An easy way of capturing the program metadata in a Common Source Library for reuse

WHAT THE DEVELOPER GAINS

  • A clear way to visualize requirements mapped to design, and ultimately to their code and test cases
  • A way to introduce a “pre-test” smoke test focusing on code complexity and completeness, rather than on functionality
  • A clear way to present status of SW for peer reviews and PDR/CDR

WHAT THE TESTER GAINS

  • A clear way to recognize what requirements are satisfied by that test
  • A clear way to identify what portions of the computer program are affected when requirements change
  • A way to trace an error in a component under test to its specification to verify its function
