Abstract

The first part of this paper explored the identification of various methodological challenges which have to be addressed when designing complex multi-system integration associated with titanium metalworking and manufacture, while in this second part of the paper, we explore the evolution of System of Systems (SoS) design and development of complex multi-system integration. Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) is employed to address identified system incongruity. The utilization of the SoS design approach coupled with the TRIZ innovation technique proved effective at addressing the system constraints for the titanium manufacturing supply chain. The utilization of the two-part process prescribed by the SoS design approach proved effective at addressing requirements and broadly stated industry needs. Through this unique system, design net-shaped structural beam from common aerospace grade titanium (Ti-6Al-4V) was successfully manufactured.
