Systems-of-Systems (SoS) is a set or arrangement of component systems that results when independent and useful systems are interoperated into a larger system that delivers unique capabilities. This system comprises many component systems and when combined together as one they tend to produce far more advanced results than they did individually. Although Systems Engineering has long established its base and has acquired multiple feathers to its cap, System-of-Systems Engineering (SOSE) is still at an infant stage and yet constantly gaining value and attention. As the current theories and methodologies are very diversified and un-organized, this thesis is an attempt to provide a basic classification in the form of a literature review, developed based on extensive research of these varied opinions. Proposed approaches are suggested for future research to pursue the understanding of SOSE fundamentals
