Paper Title
An Integrated, Modular Research Architecture for the Transformation of Systems Engineering


Conference Paper Brief

As systems continue to grow in size and complexity, it has become clear that existing Systems Engineering (SE) methods, processes and tools are becoming increasingly inadequate.   Addressing these challenges will require the development of a new paradigm for Systems Engineering that incorporates systems science advances in the areas of Enterprises and Trusted Systems.  Also, advances need to be made in the area of Human Capital Development to educate and train a workforce capable of supporting the new paradigm.  This paper focuses on the transformation of Systems Engineering and describes a research framework necessary for its implementation.
