Using ACVIP: JMR MSAD Capstone Use Case

This presentation by Stephanie Burns and Andrew Muxen was given virtually at AADL/ACVIP User Day 2022.

Software Engineering Institute



Collins use of Architecture Analysis Design Language (AADL)-based architecture analyses during Joint Multi-Role Mission System Architecture Definition (JMR MSAD) Capstone provided us an opportunity to analyze the implementation before we integrated reusable software components. Our brief provides an overview of our JMR MSAD Capstone effort, the Architecture Centric Virtual Integration Process (ACVIP) tools used, and how AADL analysis facilitated integration. We have since incorporated those lessons learned into our future digital engineering initiatives.

Stephanie Burns is a Technical Fellow with Collins Aerospace.
