TradeAnalysis v1.1 technical guide
Church, Joshua Q.
The Engineered Resilient Systems (ERS) program focuses on the acquisition process for the Department of Defense (DoD). Within ERS, the Tradespace Analysis area has developed a web-based application called TradeAnalyzer, which allows users to apply various analysis techniques across their datasets. However, many customers across the DoD faced issues connecting to external sources. To mitigate this issue, ERS developed a local Python edition of the application called TradeAnalysis. TradeAnalysis enables the customer to perform high-fidelity tradespace analysis and generate visualizations in a local environment. This application allows users to quickly generate, export, and share offline, standalone, and custom visualizations to further assist the DoD acquisition process. This report will cover the required dependencies to run the TradeAnalysis application, the recommended software for Python package management, and a breakdown of the underlying code.
