  • On the engineering of systems of systems: Key challenges for the Requirements Engineering community

    Software intensive systems of the future will be ultra large-scale systems of systems. Systems of Systems Engineering focuses on the interoperation of many independent, self-contained constituent systems to achieve a global need. The scale and complexity of systems of systems posses unique challenges for the Requirements Engineering community. Current requirements engineering techniques are inadequate in addressing these challenges and new concepts, methods, techniques, tools and processes are required. This paper identifies some immediate key challenges for the Requirements Engineering community that need to be scoped and describes some roadmapping activities that aim to address these challenges.

  • Considerations for a requirements engineering process model for the development of systems of systems

    The complexities associated with managing requirements for building systems within systems, interconnected and networked systems, and systems communicating with each other across many distributed types of environments has long since been recognized. However, dealing with the process of requirements engineering for these types of systems is still a serious concern for most complex projects, given the various types of system development paradigms that are carried out today, and the rapid evolution of requirements at various phases of the project. In order to obtain optimal requirements that reflect the characteristics of and constraints imposed by systems of systems, there needs to be an appropriate requirements engineering process in place. In this paper, the authors present several considerations for an ideal, generic requirements engineering process model that would be helpful in guiding the requirements engineering process for the development of systems of systems.

  • Identifying top challenges for international research on requirements engineering for systems of systems engineering

    Due to an increasingly connected society and industry, our modern societal world and all industry sectors now increasingly depend on large-scale complex Systems of Systems (SoS). The emerging interdisciplinary area of SoS and Systems of Systems Engineering (SoSE) is largely driven by societal needs including public services such as health, transport, water, energy, food security, etc. The scale, complexities and challenges presented by SoS require us to go beyond traditional Requirements Engineering (RE) approaches. However, as is evident from publications in major Requirements Engineering conferences and journals, no significant effort has been expedited towards addressing specific RE issues for Systems of Systems Engineering. This panel explores key RE challenges in Systems of Systems Engineering, specifically, the areas in which the international RE community need to focus its research, and the approaches that are most likely to meet these challenges effectively. We first introduce Systems of Systems Engineering and outline key characteristics of SoS. We conclude by arguing that there is an urgent need for the global RE community to develop new ways of thinking, new capabilities and possibly a new science as a key mechanism for addressing requirements complexities posed by Systems of Systems.

  • Formalisation and mapping of terminologies for Systems of Systems Engineering thesaurus

    The emergence of Systems of Systems Engineering (SoSE) poses challenges to the consistent use of terminology within and/or across heterogeneous sectors such as transport, energy and defence. In preparation for Horizon 2020, an €80 billion financial instrument running from 2014 to 2020 to implement the Europe 2020 strategy, the European Commission funded T-AREA-SoS project to formulate a strategic research agenda for SoSE that spans US and Europe activities. As part of T-AREA-SoS, a thesaurus will be created to ensure that SoS concepts and terms are consistently interpreted, and to provide an artefact that will be of significant assistance to planners of future programmes in SoSE. This paper proposes an approach for the formalisation and mapping of terminologies for a SoSE thesaurus development. This paper also discusses the theoretical foundations and exemplars of this applied approach in addition to the user interface specification for a proposed web-based thesaurus development.

  • Refining Missions to Architectures in Software-Intensive Systems-of-Systems

    An important concern in the design of a software-intensive system-of-systems (SoS) is modeling both global and individual missions to be accomplished by the SoS and its cooperating constituent systems. A first step towards the concretization of mission models is their refinement into architecture descriptions in terms of the constituents able to fulfill the established missions through emergent behaviors. In this context, we introduce M2Arch, a model-based process to refine mission models into architecture descriptions. M2Arch is concerned with the automatic generation of architecture descriptions in So-sADL, a formal language to describe SoS software architectures, from mission models in mKAOS, a language to model missions. M2Arch also comes with an associated tool supporting both mission modeling and architecture description as well as validation and simulation of the resulting architectures.

  • ISO/IEC/IEEE Draft International Standard - Systems and Software Engineering - Systems of Systems Considerations in Engineering of Systems

    This International Standard provides a set of critical considerations to be addressed at key points in the life cycle of systems created by humans. These considerations are aligned with ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 and the ISO/IEC/IEEE 24748 framework for system life cycle processes and associated terminology. Selected subsets of these considerations may be applied throughout the life of systems. This is accomplished through the involvement of all interested parties with the ultimate goal of achieving customer satisfaction by ensuring that when delivered, the system will operate effectively in the operational or business environment which will typically be characterized as one or more systems of systems. This International Standard concerns those systems that are man-made and are configured with one or more of the following: hardware, software, humans, procedures and facilities.

  • A security engineering process for systems of systems using security patterns

    The creation of secure systems of systems is a complex process. A large variety of security expertise and knowledge specific for application domains is required. This is even more important if systems of systems span different application domains. Then, security threats specific to different application- domains need to be considered. One example is integrated systems for industrial production processes that interface office domains with supply chain management systems as well as a production environment. Such integrated systems of systems can perform very efficient and economic processes. However, due to the many and different domain-specific security requirements and threats security engineering needs to support requirements specification and architecture design very early in the development process in order to ensure resilience and safety of the complete system. Working with different domains implies that properties and its functionalities are specific and the engineering process used for modeling and designing the complete system has to be able to work in this context, covering all the possibilities and allowing the use of trusted solutions that are compatible with the ones of different domains. We present in this paper a security engineering process for creating secure systems of systems that cover the necessities presented above by using a series of security artifacts that contain the domain-specific security information (in terms of security properties) and provide security solutions in the form of security patterns. These patterns contain the definition of the software/hardware elements used for providing the required solution and the information of related patterns for different domains, which provides a very helpful functionality for creating a system of systems.

  • Search-Based Design of Large Software Systems-of-Systems

    This work in progress paper presents the foundation for an Automatic Designer of large software systems-of-systems. The core formalism for the Automatic Designer is UML. The Automatic Designer extends UML with a fitness function, which uses analysis of non-functional requirements, utility theory, and stakeholder requirements, as the basis for its design suggestions. This extension logic is formalized using an OCL-based Predictive, Probabilistic Architecture Modeling Framework (called P2AMF). A set of manipulation operators is used on the UML model in order to modify it. Then, from a component library (with OTS products), new components will be introduced to the design. Using operators, a search algorithm will look for an optimal solution.

  • Quality Attributes of Systems-of-Systems: A Systematic Literature Review

    System-of-Systems (SoS) have been considered the new trend of software systems for several reasons, such as the advancement of computer technology and the increasing complexity and size of the systems. The concept of SoS has the central idea of a set of operationally independent software systems that collaborate together to compose a larger and more complex system. For SoS, several quality attributes are critical due to its characteristics and domain constraints. However, the existent quality models were not conceived to address SoS. Therefore, the identification of quality models that can address the quality attributes for SoS needs to be investigated. So, the purpose of this work is to identify the most common quality attributes in SoS context and analyze their coverage by the well established ISO/IEC 25010 quality model. As a result, we have identified that the current quality models cannot address the complex interdependencies between SoS quality attributes due its dynamic nature.

  • Systems of Systems Engineering: A research imperative

    Systems of Systems Engineering constitutes a major challenge for the 21st Century and research into this topic has become an imperative. The Support Action, T-AREA-SoS has been initiated by the European Commission to develop a research agenda in Systems of Systems (SoS) that will inform future investment in this area. Through an extensive consultation and review, a number of SoS capability gaps have been identified. Through structuring and subsequent consultation, these have been developed into twelve research themes the detailed areas of which are mapped to the three SoS characteristics of control, evolution, and emergent behaviour. A framework is presented through which researchers can develop a research campaign in SoS.
