Systems of Systems/Complex Systems

2018/2019

Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module builds on knowledge within the areas of systems and control theory, network theory, distributed systems and embedded systems

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The students will be introduced to methodologies for design of a system of systems in terms of designing the properties of the individual systems as well as their interconnecting behavior, establishing the system of systems. A systematic approach to the design of network architectures and local behavior rules, which together constitute systems of systems that are optimal with respect to objectives formulated at a macroscopic level, will be presented.

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • The formalized concept of systems of systems
  • A systematic approach to the design of network architectures and local behavior rules, which together constitute systems of systems that are optimal with respect to objectives formulated at a macroscopic level.

Skills

  • To combine the areas of systems and control theory, network theory, distributed systems and embedded systems into design principles for systems of systems

Competences

  • The ability to design of the properties of the individual systems, as well as their interconnecting behavior, establishing the system of systems
  • Identify systems as being complex and/or to fit the Systems of systems paradigm
  • Identify appropriate tools for the analysis of complex systems/ Systems of systems
  • Predict how overall design decisions impact behavior and performance of complex systems /system of systems

Type of instruction

As described in the introduction to Chapter 3.
