    Speaker: Dr. Garrett Thurston

    Description:  DoD MOSA is an integrated business and technical strategy to achieve competitive and affordable acquisition and sustainment of a new or legacy system or component over the system life cycle. This approach allows the Department to acquire warfighting capabilities, including systems, subsystems, software components, and services, with more flexibility and competition.

    Structuring a goal for acquisition success includes affordability, acquisition tradecraft, capability evolution, and overmatch. These holistic MOSA considerations require the use of methods, processes, and tools specific to each project. This webinar will include a demonstration of Dassault Systemes MOSA enabling infrastructure, application, and tools to show that it is possible to program the MOSA goals and structured objectives that are incremental, timebound, business operating model targeted, quantitative, and interdependent aspects into an enterprise phased roadmap.

    Please join us for a discussion with Dr. Garrett Thurston. There will be a Q&A portion to the webinar.
