In this discussion paper we demonstrate the catastrophic failure property of complex system of systems by simulation and an uncertainty propagation technique. Complex uncertainty cannot manifest in complicated systems that structurally lack significant circular causal dependencies. The applicability of flexibility engineering as a technique of not only harnessing but also exploiting uncertainty in system of systems is questioned and discussed for systems under complex uncertainties. Given the… CONTINUE READING
