ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_191:  Information Object Modeling Example for Air Traffic Control 
     Information Object Modeling is a technique for developing
specification models for systems.  The techniques for building
Information Object Models  were adapted from techniques of real-time
structured analysis and the Foxboro  company's experience in specifying
and developing real-time process control  systems.
     An Information Object Model (IOM) is organized to provide levels of
information for different audiences, so that one document can meet the
needs  of different people.  A mission statement is provided which
describes the  scope of the system.  An overview of the system describes
the major functional  objects.  Finally, each functional object is
discussed in detail.
     The modeling techniques for an IOM use the graphical techniques
real-time structured analysis, including transformation diagrams (data
flow plus control  flow), state transition diagrams, and entity
relationship diagrams.  Transformation diagrams, however, are applied in
a different manner,  representing the communication of objects organized
hierarchically rather than  a functional decomposition of processes.
     This document is a specification model for an air traffic control
system  prepared using Real Time Structured Analysis.  It shows
Foxboro's concept of  specification packaging and can serve as an
alternative to MIL-STD-2167A.
