Macrostructural modelization is paramount to the development of large complex systems (LCS). The paper explores the macrostructural modelization of LCS in terms of a block diagram based model and a grammar based model. Firstly, the macrostructural modelization problem of LCS is formulated. Secondly, a block diagram based model is proposed and established for LCS. Specifically, two general-purpose information-processing modules are proposed and constructed, called perception cube and decision…
