A survey on complexity management in systems engineering

  title={A survey on complexity management in systems engineering},
  author={Maik Maurer and Roland Schneller and Mayada Omer},
  journal={2014 IEEE International Systems Conference Proceedings},
In this contribution, we classify approaches towards complexity management in systems engineering. With the aid of an extensive survey of complexity, we identify similarities, differences, overlaps and gaps of complexity definitions and interactions between research areas. The overarching goal of this paper is to support a better understanding of complexity. An extensive literature review revealed seven disciplines that have direct relevance to issues of complexity. These disciplines are… CONTINUE READING
