Abstract

Engaging relevant stakeholders helps you define their needs and priorities, and develop a system of systems (SoS) based on their input. A Mission Thread Workshop (MTW) conducted by the SEI is an effective way of understanding stakeholder needs and reducing the risks associated with software architectures.

SEI MTWs are facilitated, stakeholder-centric workshops that elicit and refine end-to-end quality attributes, capabilities, and engineering considerations for SoS mission threads. This fact sheet explains the phases of the MTW and the benefits that an organization can expect from conducting one.
