Abstract

The invention consists of a process that aligns the architectures of subsystems to cultivate the emergent capabilities of the resultant overall system. Although the process is applied to a product development system comprised of a product development organization, the product it produces, and the product development process (PDP), it can be applied to any set of subsystems. This is through the application of system engineering principles and heuristics throughout the alignment process. In addition, this process may be modeled via software algorithms if necessary due to system complexity
