Architecture-based selection of modeling type for system of systems analysis
MetadataShow full item record
A methodology for selecting computer modeling methods for system of systems problems was proposed. Two hypotheses were stated and supported by subsequent experimentation: "system architectures are very closely related to conceptual models" and "depending on the architecture views deemed to be essential to describe a system of systems, there are a number of modeling techniques required to adequately model it". The experiments were conducted in a systematic fashion using "element maps" that connect system of systems architecture elements to computer modeling elements. These element maps were developed to provide a repeatable scaffold in the translation of architectures into executable models. Using the element maps, eleven tests were performed on four different architectures varying in size and purpose. A process flow is designed and detailed that helps system of systems engineers with selecting computer modeling types and translating architectures into conceptual models that can be implemented in any computer language.
