Coupling quantitative vulnerability assessment and complex system governance for systems of systems

Coupling quantitative vulnerability assessment and complex system governance for systems of systems Complex systems of systems and their problems continue to confound our best and most noble approaches in design, execution, and development. The aim of this paper is to establish the need for coupling quantitative vulnerability assessment (QVA) and complex system governance (CSG) to better inform governance of vulnerability in complex systems of systems. First, a perspective of the situation facing modern system practitioners is provided. Second, QVA is introduced as an approach to understand potential weaknesses in complex systems of systems. Third, a framework for understanding impediments to complex system performance, CSG, is suggested. Fourth, the intersection of QVA and CSG is presented as a new and novel approach to more effectively respond to challenges facing complex systems of systems. Two scenarios (i.e., navigating challenges of the New Arctic and Critical Space Infrastructure) are used to demonstrate the utility of the QVA/CSG coupling.

Abstract

Complex systems of systems and their problems continue to confound our best and most noble approaches in design, execution, and development. The aim of this paper is to establish the need for coupling quantitative vulnerability assessment (QVA) and complex system governance (CSG) to better inform governance of vulnerability in complex systems of systems. First, a perspective of the situation facing modern system practitioners is provided. Second, QVA is introduced as an approach to understand potential weaknesses in complex systems of systems. Third, a framework for understanding impediments to complex system performance, CSG, is suggested. Fourth, the intersection of QVA and CSG is presented as a new and novel approach to more effectively respond to challenges facing complex systems of systems. Two scenarios (i.e., navigating challenges of the New Arctic and Critical Space Infrastructure) are used to demonstrate the utility of the QVA/CSG coupling. Further research is suggested.
