Discover the emerging science and engineering of System ofSystems
Many challenges of the twenty-first century, such as fossil fuelenergy resources, require a new approach. The emergence of Systemof Systems (SoS) and System of Systems Engineering (SoSE) presentsengineers and professionals with the potential for solving many ofthe challenges facing our world today. This groundbreaking bookbrings together the viewpoints of key global players in the fieldto not only define these challenges, but to provide possiblesolutions.
Each chapter has been contributed by an international expert,and topics covered include modeling, simulation, architecture, theemergence of SoS and SoSE, net-centricity, standards, management,and optimization, with various applications to defense,transportation, energy, the environment, healthcare, serviceindustry, aerospace, robotics, infrastructure, and informationtechnology.
The book has been complemented with several casestudies--Space Exploration, Future Energy Resources,Commercial Airlines Maintenance, Manufacturing Sector, ServiceSector, Intelligent Transportation, Future Combat Missions, GlobalEarth Observation System of Systems project, and many more--togive readers an understanding of the real-world applications ofthis relatively new technology. System of SystemsEngineering is an indispensable resource for aerospace anddefense engineers and professionals in related fields.
