Dynamic Utility in Systems Architecting
Jason Barolomei, PhD Student, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Engineering systems exist to meet the needs of stakeholders. The determination of stakeholder needs and subsequent translation of these needs into requirements drives the system architecting process. Often stakeholders’ needs and value for system capabilities change during system development. These changes in utility can significantly influence the system architecture and architecting process. This research seeks to understand the causes and effects of changing stakeholder utility in the context of weapon system acquisitions. My hypothesis is that insight into dynamic utility will lead to improved program planning strategies and system flexibility.
