Systems of Systems

Today's operational environments are dominated by complex Systems of Systems. We now create unprecedented scope and complexity. Extended life cycles, legacy systems and ongoing re-architecting add to the difficulty. Success requires sound methods to manage complexity while maintaining the integrity of the design and supporting shifting operational priorities.
When you think your systems should be working together better than they are, this two-day workshop presents detailed, useful techniques to develop effective systems of systems and to manage the engineering activities associated with them. The course is designed for program managers, project managers, systems engineers, technical team leaders, logistic support leaders, and others who take part in developing today's complex systems.
The Collective Emergent Robotics Exercise gives students the opportunity to practice the skills taught in the course while collaboratively developing an evolving system of systems consisting of actual operating robots.
