This paper presents a method of applying the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Network Management Model to the Boardman-Sauser Distinguishing Characteristics of System of Systems (SoS). The ISO model defines five conceptual areas for managing networks: Performance, Configuration, Accounting, Fault, and Security. This model is both a(More)
This paper focuses on a method of developing a framework for effective System of Systems Engineering (SoSE) management. While developing the management process in dealing with SoSE, we are searching for ways to engineer multiple integrated complex systems, which can be concurrently, highly emergent and effectively governable. The authors propose to utilize(More)
—This paper proposes a socio-physical approach that considers jointly the interaction and integration of the social and physical views of a system to improve emergency response and preparedness. Using network analysis, it is shown that the explicit socio-physical approach yields meaningful qualitative and quantitative differences when compared with(More)
The process of modelling and simulation (M&S) plays a critical role in system of systems (SoS) engineering, given its ability to capture and visualize the dynamic nature embedded within SoS complexity. While there are multiple M&S paradigms, currently there is limited guidance for selecting the most appropriate one(s) based on the intention of the SoS(More)
