By applying a lean enterprise lens to studies of the evolving field of system of systems engineering (SoSE), it has been observed that many SoSE teams are developing processes that are consistent with many lean enterprise principles. These SoSE processes are designed to efficiently evolve the group of systems to meet new needs using limited resources. This paper provides further insights and recommendations for the evolution of system of systems processes using lean concepts. We conclude with a discussion of the potential conflicts between SoSE and lean paradigms and provide thirteen SoS case studies to illustrate the emphasis on lean thinking.

Revisiting the Question: Are Systems of Systems just (traditional) Systems or are they a new class of Systems? Mekdeci, Brian; Shah, Nirav; Ross, Adam Michael; Rhodes, Donna H.; Hastings, Daniel E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2014-03)This paper revisits a question asked and debated widely over the past decade: are Systems of Systems (SoS) just traditional systems or are they a new class of systems? Many have argued that SoS are a new class of systems, ...
