Model-Based System Development for Managing the Evolution of a Common Submarine Combat System
Source: George Mason University
Managing the evolution of a complex product family that is deployed and maintained in multiple variants on various platforms using traditional systems engineering tools and processes is a significant challenge. An example is managing the evolution of a common combat system across a fleet of submarines. Due to the realities of budgets and operational scheduling, multiple versions of the product must be managed for each ship: the currently deployed version, the upcoming tech refresh version, and future versions in planning and development.
