System of Systems Engineering (SoSE) is an emerging technical discipline that is increasingly referenced in industry, primarily due to the explosion of technology over recent decades. Its meteoric rise, however, has not been followed by a comprehensive study of what truly defines this new methodology. Despite its widespread use, SoSE still lacks a cohesive, agreed-upon definition or standard curriculum.
This thesis defines a common, cross-disciplinary framework for SoSE that can be further developed through collaboration between academics and technical professionals. After establishing key SoSE concepts and their roots in traditional SE, this thesis reviews a wide spectrum of present applications and opportunities for future use of SoSE principles in hopes of encouraging a more unified understanding and development of SoSE as a technical discipline.
