Abstract
In order to improve the operational assessments process of Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) in U.S. Southern Command, this thesis provides a system of systems analysis of the GPOI program. Using systems of systems engineering concepts described by the U.S. Department of Defense and following a systems of systems engineering and integration process model, an operational architecture of GPOI as a system of systems is developed from an analysis of stakeholders, an exploration of the operational concept, an examination of capabilities, a creation of event and interaction models, and an evaluation of governance. The architecture is used to identify friction points and recommend improvements in both process and organization of GPOI. This thesis serves as a foundation for providing appropriate metrics for an effective operational assessment of the GPOI program to a decision maker.
