Chapter α Engineering Complex Systems

  title={Chapter α Engineering Complex Systems},
  author={D. Norman and M. L. Kuras},
Using the current instantiation of the Air and Space Operations Center (AOC), and the desired evolution of it, the AOC is shown to be best thought of as a complex system. Complex Systems are alive and constantly changing. They respond and interact with their environments – each causing impact on (and inspiring change in) the other. We make the case that a traditional systems engineering (TSE) approach does not scale to the AOC; consequently, we don’t believe TSE scales to the “enterprise.”
