About the Presentation:
Dr. Eric Honour, CSEP, INCOSE Fellow, and former INCOSE President will present current ideas and trends about Systems of Systems (SoS) engineering. Drawing from his work with the European DANSE (Designing for Adaptation and evolutioN in Systems of systems Engineering) project and the INCOSE SoS Working Group, this talk will look at the differences between DoD and commercial approaches to SoS, the trends observed in the European Union and other international efforts, and how architecture frameworks and Model-Based SE (MBSE) support the complex needs of working within an SoS. The presentation is filled with examples of real-world SoS and their successes and failures, with lesson learned from those experiences.
