A conceptual model of Systems of Systems

Proceedings Second International Workshop on the Swarm at the Edge of the Cloud, CPS Week 2015
We propose a meta - model for systems of systems which is rich enough to model realistic applications and at the same time can be used as a blue print for identifying typical trouble spots in SoS design(and consequently also for IoT, IoE, networked CPS and swarm systems) as well as guiding the development of distributed strategies for the coordination and orchestration of their constituent system.The talk highlights typical pitfalls in SoS design and explains countermeasures based on the underlying conceptual model.
