Existing systems for requirements analysis (RA) do not provide a graphically intuitive human-machine interface and are thus not exploiting the visual knowledge that leverages current interactive graphical interfaces. Human-computer symbiosis includes an idea that technology should be designed in a way that amplifies human intelligence instead of attempting to replace it or automating a manual process. Current RA systems fail at this.
Given the above, Navy scientists have created an improved graphical interface for amplifying human analytics work and analysis that lets people interact with a virtualization or visualization of their business problem within a graphical context. This provides an intuitive and immediate set of relationships which aid in making decisions in the context of multi-variable problems by emphasizing graphical correlations that can be assigned meaning and stored in a database, permit rapid collective assessments within a system-of-systems context, and correlate resourcing, human problems/interactions, and cognitive models.
Known as the Task Map Analysis Process (TMAP), the software and process start with the selection of a problem to be solved and a definition of the satisfactory solution in either absolute or relative terms. The system then allows the user to build and define the steps between these beginning and ending points. Several modules support the identification of tasks, assessment, and decisions.
