Abstract:

The aim of the work is to examine the possibility of developing a tool to track, monitor and predict large complex system development by enhancing the clarity of how decisions at lower levels impact on the goals of the project. The approach uses Maritime Operations Division s MOD established ability in combat system performance modelling using MBSE and attempts to connect that level to Operational Capabilities and hence Strategy. The paper leverages off MBSE tool capabilities, developments such as the Whole of System Architecture Framework WSAF and research approaches such as the Aligned Process Model APM. The large complex project examined in this experiment is the Future Submarine project due to the authors experience with the project, however any other large complex project would have been equally viable for the experiment.
