1.2 The Complexity Threshold

Chapter 1 – Why Architecting Systems?
At this stage, it is now time to explain more precisely what “systems complexity” is and how it is connected with systems architecting. An element of answer is provided by the Constructive Systems Engineering Cost Model. This cost model – which extends to general industrial systems a classical model well known for information systems since the 1980’s – is based on an integration complexity measure of a product system that recursively measures the number of external & internal product interfaces within a given industrial system...
