The DAU lead MOSA Cyber-Physical Workshop will deliver a fire hose of MOSA knowledge over the four-hour session and exercises. Initially developed for PEO-IEW&S to train their implementation guidance to cross-functional program teams (WSE027 MOSA Workshop), the MOSA Live all day version has brought cross-continuum awareness of MOSA not only to individual PEO's but cross-organizational System of Systems integration / interoperability partners as well. These guest presenters will share their organizational experiences of what is working and what could use some work following and implementing the statutory and regulatory MOSA requirements.
