Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited This thesis demonstrates the process by which the concepts of open systems architecture (OSA) might be applied within the context of an existing systems engineering methodology to result in a flexible system. This is accomplished by combining an existing systems engineering process model with OSA management and business principles to execute a successful asset-repurposing program. To demonstrate utility of this OSA approach to systems engineering management, this thesis analyzes an atypical asset-repurposing program: the conversion of a 1610 Class Landing Craft Utility to an unmanned surface vehicle. This th...
