As a member of the systems architecture team at TARDEC, I am responsible for leading and supporting architecture developments for small and large programs & projects across the organization. I am also involved in efforts to integrate and develop best practices in systems architecture in order to enhance the TARDEC system architecture capability as a unified front. This involves coordinating and participating in TARDEC architecture working group and contributing to the development of a common library of reusable model elements to streamline and standardize system models across TARDEC. As a system architecture lead on a project, I am responsible for creating & maintaining an integrated system model that describes the entire system structure and behaviors as well as perform analysis on the system model to generate meaningful metrics to key stakeholders. In order to maintain a well-integrated and comprehensive model that is useful to the project, I interact daily with subject matter experts, military operations specialists, requirements engineers, and program management.
