Addressing Dependability in Multiple Domains of Management

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Panos Periorellis



The purpose of this deliverable is to present our final results from the Travel Agent case study and through that investigate integration issues amongst computer systems that belong to different organizations, are placed behind strong organizational boundaries and handled within multiple domains of management. The conclusions have been drawn mainly from the Travel Agent (TA) case study although some examples have been drawn from the EXaMINE case study which we studied in the later stages of the DSoS project. The document is outlined as follows. We are presenting and discussing a number of results that we received from the case studies in the last few months and since our last deliverable [PCE4]. We will show that in order to address the issues raised by the case studies we need to carefully think about the architecting of a Systems of Systems (SoS). Note here that we are interested not merely in the architecture but in the process of architecting i.e. the rationale behind providing an adequate architecture that addresses the issues surrounding systems of systems i.e. autonomous systems, that are integrated while maintaining their organizational boundaries.
