Revised Version of DSoS Conceptual Model

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Cliff JonesORCiD, Professor Brian RandellORCiD, Professor Alexander RomanovskyORCiD, Dr Robert Stroud



The purpose of this deliverable is to present a revised version of the DSoS conceptual model, which was first presented in deliverable BC1. As part of this revision, we have attempted to generalise the model by identifying abstract concepts that are applicable to more than one kind of system of systems. We have also developed a taxonomy in order to explore the range of possible systems of systems, and the different factors that could impact the dependability of such compositions of systems. The deliverable starts by introducing a set of basic concepts including a model of time. It concludes by summarizing the contents of the deliverable and briefly discussing further work.
