An Advanced Computational Approach to System of Systems Analysis & Architecting Using Agent-Based Behavioral Model: Phase 2
Final technical rept.
SYSTEMS ENGINEERING RESEARCH CENTER HOBOKEN NJ
Pagination or Media Count:
The goal of this research is to model the evolution of the architecture of an acknowledged Systems of Systems SoS that accounts for the ability and willingness of constituent systems to support the SoS capability development. Since DoD SoS development efforts do not typically follow the program of record acquisition process described in DoDI 5000.02, the Wave Model proposed by Dahmann and Rebovich is used as the basis for this research on SoS capability evolution. The Wave Process Model provides a framework for an agent-based modeling methodology, which is used to abstract the non-utopian behavioral aspects of the constituent systems and their interactions with the SoS. In particular, the research focuses on the impact of individual system behavior on the SoS capability and architecture evolution processes.
