During requirements analysis and system design, our close attention to mission performance metrics (reliability, maintainability, availability, throughput, UI form and function, etc.) results in risk and cost reduction. With our deep expertise in IA and cybersecurity, we incorporate security and privacy principles at each stage of analysis, design, and testing to ensure resulting systems are “secure by design” rather than bolted-on security mechanisms. Our mission emphasis during design ensures the resulting systems will enhance the mission when deployed. We employ users in iterative User Interface (UI) design to ensure easy navigation and intuitiveness are included in the design, which reduces training overhead later. During every stage of systems analysis and design, we provide detailed system documentation to reduce maintenance and training overhead for fielded systems. We compile requirements into a development support tool such as IBM DOORS or Rational Rose so that business requirements can be traced through to technical requirements and eventually to test scenarios.
