The mission of the working group is to advance and promote the application of Systems Engineering to Systems of Systems (SoS), often referred to as SoS Engineering (SoSE).
SoS and SoSE are topics that interest a significant number of INCOSE members globally, both individuals and organizations.
This working group addresses the application of systems engineering to all kinds of engineered systems of systems, across all relevant application domains.
This includes directed, acknowledged, collaborative and virtual SoS (as defined in ISO/IEC/IEEE 21841) and our membership and work covers application domains including (not exhaustive): defence, aerospace, power and energy, transportation, automotive, infrastructure, healthcare.
Anyone with an application area or challenge that might benefit from SoS thinking is always welcome.
Since its formation the working group has created a substantial body of work, as well as motivating a significant number of conference papers, panels, and interactive sessions.
The working group held its business meeting on Sunday 29th January 2023 at the IW in Torrance involving both in-person and virtual attendees.
The meeting reviewed SoSWG activities in the last year, and plans going forwards. The output of the meeting is the list of planned activities and work products that are listed on this page.
Meeting minutes and draft work products will be shared on the member-only iNET.
These are the planned SoSWG activities for 2023
