SYST 621: Systems Architecture Design and Evaluation

Course Information from University Catalog

Not Repeatable


Intensive study of relationships between different types of architecture representations and methodologies used to obtain them. Approaches based on systems engineering constructs, such as structured analysis and software engineering constructs, including object orientation, are used to develop architecture representations or views and to derive an executable model of the information architecture. Executable model is then used for behavior analysis and performance evaluation. Roles of systems architect and systems engineer are discussed. Examples from current practice including the C4ISR architectures are used.
