Abstract:

Distributed or collaborative system architectures present a fundamental strategic tradeoff in the design of engineering systems in large-scale domains such as defense and critical infrastructure. Effective collaboration among multiple design actors can lead to improved emergent capabilities and opportunities for cost sharing to field systems impossible to achieve through independent action. However, collaboration also requires a non-reversible commitment of effort that presents a fundamental source of uncertainty and can lead to coordination failures with significant cost penalties. Thus, interdependencies among design actors contributes both an upside potential and a downside risk associated with collaboration.
