Large-scale behavior emerges—and may be desirable—but this type of SoS must rely upon relatively invisible mechanisms to maintain, Collaborative–SoS where component systems interact voluntarily to fulfill agreed upon central purposes. The full text of this source is available through the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) website. The US Department of Defense Systems Engineering Guide for Systems of Systems defines an SoS as “a set or arrangement of systems that results when independent 10/27/09 Page-2. Component systems can operate independently, but normally work as an SoS. This office will develop periodic updates as required, based on growing experience and new developments. DoD Systems Engineering Guide for System of Systems, https://www.acq.osd.mil/se/docs/SE-Guide-for-SoS.pdf, Virtual–SoS that lack a central management authority and a centrally agreed upon purpose for the system-of-systems. The US Department of Defense - Defense Acquisition Guide(DAG) introduced the need for joint programs to ensure coordination between independently developed systems that will interface with external systems in its 2004 release.

Annotation The full text of this source is available through the Defense … Office of the Director, Defense Research and Engineering. This source is considered a primary reference for the Systems of Systems (SoS) article. 2008. Example: Satellite and ground station tasking, collection, communication, and processing activities. Consider Sharing your Knowledge, The Art and Science of Solution Effectiveness. NDIA SE Conference Luncheon Address. The central players collectively decide how to provide or deny service, thereby providing a means for maintaining and enforcing standards. This document provides four generally accepted SoS types based on the level of governance and control associated with a given SoS. The document also provides some insight into how to use systems engineering activities within the DAG for a system of systems. Washington, DC, USA: US Department of Defense (DoD). Systems Engineering Guide for Systems of Systems The office of primary responsibility for this publication is the Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Technology, Systems and Software Engineering. Available: http://www.acq.osd.mil/se/docs/SE-Guide-for-SoS.pdf. The below definitions are drawn from Undersecretary of Defense [AT&L] (2008). The factors that make an SoS more challenging is the scope, complexity and lack of centralized configuration control of systems within the SoS (INCOSE 2015; Undersecretary of Defense [AT&L] 2008). UNCLASSIFIED. However, the constituent systems retain independent ownership, objectives, funding, development, and sustainment. Unlike the evolution of DOD systems engineering the team that created this document relied heavily on industry expertise from within and external to DOD projects to guide the SoS lexicon (Undersecretary of Defense [AT&L] 2008). (Example: Navy carrier strike group consisting of various ships and aircraft linked together through voice and data communication networks), Directed–SoS designed, built, and managed to fulfill a central purpose, usually over a long period. Systems Engineering Plan Preparation Guide “Technical Planning for Mission Success” October 18, 2007 Version 2.0 Department of Defense Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Technology Systems and Software Engineering Enterprise Development. Calling all SMEs: Systems Engineering Guide for Systems of Systems, Version 1.0. This page was last edited on 13 October 2020, at 23:32. DoD. Engineering across systems of systems to achieve a broader capability can be challenging, especially given the independence of the constituent systems and the fact that these constituent systems are on their own schedules for development and evolution. In 2006, the Office of Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics (USD AT&L) initiated a project to define the aspects and considerations that program managers and systems engineers should address to improve the effectiveness of systems within the br… Published October 2007 This publication is intended for use by program managers and systems engineers. Systems Engineering Guide for Systems of Systems, version 1.0. This … Washington, DC: Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Technology, Systems and Software Engineering. System of Systems (SoS) Engineering deals with the planning, analyzing, organizing, and integrating multiple system capabilities into existing and new systems which will provide more capability. The resulting definition of a system of system is consistent with industry publications, including those by INCOSE 2015 and ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288:2015. AT&L (2008) defines an SoS as “a set or arrangement of systems that results when independent and useful systems are integrated into a larger system that delivers unique capabilities” (4). October 27, 2009. It may deliver capabilities by combining multiple collaborative and autonomous-yet-interacting systems. (2). DoD Systems Engineering Guide for System of Systems A systems engineer in the DoD will develop, design, allocate, and manage user and system level requirements (see Requirements Development), lead the development of the system architecture, evaluate design tradeoffs, balance technical risk between systems, define and assess interfaces, provide oversight of
