System of systems engineering and integration process for network transport assessment
Rambo, Matthew B.
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis proposes a system of systems (SoS) engineering and integration (SoSE&I) process and provides a use case for a network transport analysis that is tailored to an information technology (IT) network. The purpose of the process is to identify the capabilities required for the transport and provide a framework for analysis, test, and implementation to ensure that the network IT system supports the user requirements for the overall SoS. The thesis then details a Navy use case through the steps of the proposed process and provides example steps and criteria for the assessment. Prior research on SoS architectures was leveraged in developing the proposed process and tailored to support IT network challenges. The thesis makes recommendations to prioritize capabilities, to implement capability-based quality of service (QoS), to have a detailed understanding of applications for the correlation of application to capability, to continuously monitor IT networks to ensure satisfactory performance with new applications or user behavior, and to ensure governance is applied through the process to ensure oversight of design and tradeoff decisions for network throughput analyses.
