welcome back to CyberRays is. Of course, I'm your instructor, Brad Roads.
Let's jump into implementation and integration.
So in this video, we're gonna cover implementation. We're gonna define it and talk a little bit about it, give you a good analogy to remember it. We're gonna talk about integration again. We're going to use that same analogy, but talk about integration, and then we're gonna look at the system of interest diagram again, and hopefully that will make a little bit more sense to you.
So what is implementation? Implementation is transforming
the requirements that we've created. The architecture, the design, all of those pieces departs into system elements that will eventually be put together to make an entire system. So I like to think of a puzzle here as an analogy. When you have a puzzle, let's say you go out and get 1000 piece puzzle.
In that puzzle, you get 1000 pieces you have to put together.
Those pieces have been transformed. They have been the raw material of the cardboard and the paper and the drawing that was put on it. Those have been transformed into the pieces of the puzzle that will then be integrated into the puzzle, which we'll talk about integration next.
So integration is where we take all of the modules, the pieces and parts, the elements of everything that we built from a pieces perspective, and we put it together. So now, in integration, we're putting the puzzle together. We're integrating everything. I really kind of, you know, like the idea of the image on the left hand side of the screen. Here.
It's an Arduino. If you've never played with an Arduino
from a maker perspective, I totally recommend it because it's really interesting. You learn all about both implementation and integration with an Arduino. So, for example, when you look at the picture there, you see all the wires that air sticking out of the Arduino. Well, those wires
are the are the elements, if you will, of, say, the security system. If they are doing nowhere to represent that, and then when you put that all together, you have integrated it
to do whatever that function is likely. Turn on the light, do some sort of alarm, whatever it is that you're doing with yard, we know. And so it's another way to look at integration it's taking the pieces and parts the elements and putting it together to make something happen. So that's what integration is. So
let's talk about that in the case of this system of interest. So what is the system of interest? What we talked about that already.
That is all of these system elements and all the enabling systems and other systems that are put together to create a system from a systems engineering perspective, in our case, from an information systems security engineering perspective, where we have all of these pieces that are finally working together into a single system of interest
in the environment that they were designed to operate in.
So what do we cover in this lesson? We looked at implementation. We defined it. We defined integration. We talked about the system of interest and the analogy that we used to remember. This was the puzzle. The puzzle pieces are the elements, and the finished puzzle is the integrated system. So hopefully that helps you remember the difference between implementation and integration.
We'll see you next time
