system-of-interest

Definition(s):

  System whose life cycle is under consideration in the context of International Standard ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288. Note 1: The system-of-interest is the system that is the focus of the systems engineering effort. The system-of-interest contains system elements, system element interconnections, and the environment in which they are placed. Note 2: The boundary of the system-of-interest is typically determined relative to the authorization boundary. However, it can also be determined by other “boundaries” established by programmatic, operational, or jurisdictional control.
