Technology life cycles are becoming shorter as is the time for those technologies to become ubiquitous in the society. The Industrial Revolution took about 150 years; but the computer revolution took only 50 years. Cell phones, which hit the market in the early 1980s took only 25 years to become a global phenomenon. Computers and cell phones are two examples of a growing number of products that marry hardware, software, communications, and physical components into what are called cyber physical… 
The operad of wiring diagrams: formalizing a graphical language for databases, recursion, and plug-and-play circuits
TLDR
It is shown that wiring diagrams form the morphisms of an operad $\mcT$, capturing this self-similarity, and is moved on to show how plug-and-play devices and also recursion can be formulated in the operadic framework as well.

TLDR
It is argued and shown that full integration is not the preferred way to go and the emerging discipline should strive to facilitate the use of both perspectives alongside each other in a sensible way and, thereby, not discard the strengths of either perspective.
Soft Systems Methodology : A Thirty Year
Although the history of thought reveals a number of holistic thinkers — Aristotle, Marx, Husserl among them — it was only in the 1950s that any version of holistic thinking became institutionalized.

Concurrent design happens at the interfaces
TLDR
This paper argues that concurrent engineering requires both technical and organizational solutions, and calls the result concurrent design, and sees the interactions among design research, practice, and education as essential to understanding concurrent design.
Value-Based Software Engineering: A Case Study
TLDR
The value-based approach to software development integrates value considerations into current and emerging software engineering principles and practices, while developing an overall framework in which these techniques compatibly reinforce each other.
Software Failures, Security, and Cyberattacks
TLDR
It is argued that the greater threat for catastrophic events are managerial strategies, as large, dominant companies favor integrated, rather than modular software-system architectures.

TLDR
This eagerly anticipated revision of the best-selling and definitive guide to the use of the UML is provided, providing a tutorial to its core aspects in a two-color format designed to facilitate learning.
The Technology Imperative
The convergence of technology-based competitive capabilities among the world’s economies has drastically altered the required economic growth strategies in industrialized nations. Based on a
The meltdown was not an accident
This volume includes two major explanations of the meltdown that I critically discuss. The first is a “normal accident theory” arguing that the complexity and coupling of the financial system caused
