  • Abstract

    Raytheon began an "architecture journey" several years ago to institutionalize architecture as a formal practice throughout the company. Corporate Engineering's senior leadership defined a vision to address a set of software, systems, and enterprise architecture needs across Raytheon's multiple business areas.

    Since then, Raytheon has enhanced its architecture competencies through a variety of corporate initiatives including:

    • Establishing a corporate Architecture Review Board (ARB)
    • Establishing a company-wide, standardized architecting process
    • Definition and deployment of an architecture training program
    • Definition and deployment of an internal Raytheon Certified Architect Program (RCAP)
    • Participation in external architect certification programs
    • Development of reference architectures
    • In-depth analyses of the latest architecture tools
    • Establishing a corporately accessible architecture repository
    • Establishing company-wide, architecture-centric Technical Interest Groups (TIGs)
    • Collaborations with academic, industry and government organizations
