ASSET_A_165: DCDS (Distributed Computing Design System) Data Model Analysis of DCDS Data Model. This paper looks at the DCDS data model and how well it correlates with the current procedural steps taken by Boeing during project development. Information includes a basic life cycle model, a brief history of the development behind DCDS and RDD, the basic DCDS data model, and comparisons between DCDS and Boeing's System Engineering Process WBS, the Boeing Software Standards Online System, and RDD. DCDS is found to cover a broad spectrum of the life cycle development activities. The database schema language is extensive and extendible. An overview of the DCDS data model shows that DCDS is a highly structured approach to distributed design of large software development projects. There is a tremendous amount of information contained in a project database. The wide scope and sheer size of the database for a large project has its problems. There is a need for improved man machine interface (new windowing technology), multi-user capabilities, better word processing capabilities, and more eloquent database interaction.
