Abstract
This research project evaluates the use of on-demand (pull or kanban) scheduling approaches in systems engineering. In particular, this initial phase focuses on systems engineering where rapid response software development projects incrementally evolve capabilities of existing systems and/or systems of systems. It defines and models a kanban-based scheduling system and a services approach to systems engineering among software projects in such an environment. It then reports on simulation of their performance and those of traditional SE methods to understand if systems engineering functions are accomplished more effectively and efficiently, and whether the overall value of the systems of systems over time is increased.
