CASoS Engineering Design Process


A general CASoS Engineering design process must be wide and deep to cover the many potential opportunities for unexpected, nonlinear, interconnected behavior and to find and make use of similarities across many disciplines. As illustrated below, the design process is comprised of three phases applied primarily in succession but with some overlap, blending and iteration (both between and within) to deliver CASoS engineered solutions.

Actualization will require designing and testing to suggest future steps: adaptations of the system might require us to return to fundamental thinking to understand the adaptations and possibly redefine the CASoS and our aspirations as the system changes. The current structure and state of the CASoS Engineering Design Process are provided in Complex Adaptive Systems of Systems (CASoS) Engineering Framework Version 1.0.
