The benefits of engineering systems using open standards and architectures have been apparent for some time. Government agencies seek the increased interoperability and reduced costs of open systems. Realizing the potential of open systems engineering requires an experienced, multi-disciplined staff that has a deep understanding of the environment in which a system will operate and the dedication to change organizational tendencies to develop stove-piped systems. SBG has the real-world experience, technical expertise and management capability to ensure the success of a transition to open systems engineering.

SBG has been on the forefront of open systems engineering, providing support to the highest levels of the Navy since early 2005. SBG’s support includes efforts to determine software reuse with the Navy and industry vendors, developing a Navy enterprise software repository, changing business practices, and educating acquisition personnel using strategic communications and change management practices on the benefits of open architecture. One goal of open architecture is to develop a software repository to promote software reuse, which will reduce program costs and schedules while improving software quality. SBG researched, outlined, developed and reviewed major elements of the Concept of Operations and Requirements document for the U.S. government’s Open Architecture Enterprise Repository.

SBG’s experience in applying open systems principles to software development efforts is invaluable to many programs. SBG can give your program significant insight into the Department of Defense and Navy’s vision of future software and systems development. SBG’s leadership in open systems engineering will ensure the success of your system development efforts.
