UNISA presents From Complexity to Clarity: The Art of Architecting
Thursday, October 1, 2020 from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This event is based in South Australia and organised by the University of South Australia, it will be available to SESA members across the country online.
Join us with Dave Hawken who will be exploring the complexities of designing military systems using the concept of capabilities. A capability is not an individual piece of equipment, like a tank, ship or aircraft, but describes the effect the military seeks to achieve and requires dynamically integrated solutions of those pieces of equipment. This presentation will show how taking an architectural approach is essential to designing capabilities and through military examples will illustrate how this is not as straightforward as it seems!
