Distributed Resource Management in Systems of Systems: An Architecture Perspective

  title={Distributed Resource Management in Systems of Systems: An Architecture Perspective},
  author={Mohsen Mosleh and Peter Ludlow and Babak Heydari},
  journal={Syst. Eng.},
This paper introduces a framework for studying the interactions of autonomous system components and the design of the connectivity structure in Systems of Systems SoSs. This framework, which uses complex network models, is also used to study the connectivity structure's impact on resource management. We discuss resource sharing as a mechanism that adds a level of flexibility to distributed systems and describe the connectivity structures that enhance components' access to the resources… Expand
Multistakeholder Dynamic Optimization for Acknowledged System-of-Systems Architecture Selection
A multistakeholder dynamic optimization method that combines approximate dynamic programming and a transfer contract coordination mechanism through a value function approximation solves a multistage architecture selection problem with an embedded formal, but simple, transfercontract coordination mechanism addressing the resource conflict among the stakeholders.

Distributed or Monolithic? A Computational Architecture Decision Framework
This paper uses a conceptual decision framework that unifies modularity and distributed architecture on a five-stage systems architecture spectrum and adds an extensive computational layer to the framework and explains how this can enhance decision making about the level of modularity of the architecture. Expand
From Modular to Distributed Open Architectures: A Unified Decision Framework
It is argued that the fundamental systemic driving forces and trade-offs of moving from monolithic to distributed architecture are essentially similar to those for moving from integral to modular architectures. Expand
Emergence of Modularity in System of Systems: Complex Networks in Heterogeneous Environments
A formal framework that links various classes of systems modularity to distributed decision complexities is presented by formulating modularity as an emergent phenomenon arising from environmental heterogeneity. Expand
Issues in Multiagent Resource Allocation
A survey of some of the most salient issues in Multiagent Resource Allocation, including various languages to represent the pref-erences of agents over alternative allocations of resources as well as different measures of social welfare to assess the overall quality of an allocation. Expand
Computer network development to achieve resource sharing
An overview of the need for a computer network, the requirements of a computer communication system, a description of the properties of the communication system chosen, and the potential uses of such a network are described. Expand
Optimal Modularity for Fractionated Spacecraft: The Case of System F6
The net value that is gained or lost by moving from a monolithic to a fractionated architecture is calculated and how the sign and magnitude of this value change as a function of uncertainties in the environment and various system parameters is shown. Expand

  • 1994
A new, general strategy of sharing multiple, discrete resources with predetermined capacities under the model of distributed robotic systems (DRS), based upon a media access protocol, CSMA/CD-W (Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection for Wireless), which supports wireless inter-robot communication among multiple autonomous mobile robots without using any centralized mechanism.

A System of Systems Focused Enterprise Architecture Framework and an Associated Architecture Development Process
The identification of an enterprise architectural framework for a complex system of systems is led to, which identifies an enterprise architecture framework and an Architecture Development Process (ADP) to engineer an effective, flexible enterprise architecture. Expand
A Noncooperative Model of Network Formation
An approach to network formation based on the notion that social networks are formed by individual decisions that trade off the costs of forming and maintaining links against the potential rewards from doing so to formulate the network formation process as a noncooperative game. Expand
