Abstract: During this meeting Beth Wilson will kick off a project to develop a SoS Guide that tailors the RWG products including the Needs and Requirements Manual, Guide to Needs and Requirements, and Guide to Verification and Validation to address the unique challenges for an SoS. Last month’s RWG Exchange Café began with a summary of the SoS challenges when it comes to defining needs and requirements and verifying the SoS meets the requirements and validating that the SoS meets the needs. After the presentation, the session was opened up for a general discussion concerning SoS. What is common to systems and SoS? What is unique for SoS?
