Development of an evolutionary computing tool for requirements analysis and optimization of component-based systems is described. The tool assesses scenarios that represent potential designs and their operational behavior, as well as how the designs perform in a range of environmental conditions. Designs are optimized for three objective functions: 1) reliability; 2) performance time; and 3) costs. Use of the tool is illustrated in a systems engineering case study to derive optimal design for a naval command and control system that includes human operator roles as well as technology components. © 2007 IEEE.
