Mastering complex engineered systems is a fundamental strategic challenge. Complex Systems Design & Management (CSD&M) conference is a widely open meeting event dedicated to academic researchers, industrial and governmental actors who are interested in complex industrial systems engineering. The event is not limited to the existing specialists of the subject!
The 2-day conference allows since 2010 to discover and share about theories, methods and tools that have been developed to allow to manage the increasing complexity of the technical systems you must design and implement.
Thanks to its past 9 editions, CSD&M has become the conference of reference in the field of complex industrial systems architecture & engineering.
An Excel-based Systems-Engineering Tool for Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration across the Enterprise
MapleMBSE is an Excel-based tool that makes it easy for every stakeholder to engage with the Systems Engineering project without requiring them to be an expert in your primary SE tools. MapleMBSE makes broad engagement possible with Excel-based, task-specific interfaces for each activity in the systems design process. By giving all stakeholders access to the process through a live, two-way connection to systems model, you can ensure that all stakeholders can collaborate through the “single source of truth”, allowing them to work faster, avoid errors, and reduce unbudgeted costs.
This presentation will include case studies from NASA JPL in the US and Nissan in Japan. It will highlight the advantages of allowing all stakeholders in the project to collaborate with others, directly through the systems model, served through Magic Draw Teamwork Cloud or IBM’s Rhapsody.
MAESTRIA: A New Tool to Support Collaborative Building and Sharing of an IVVQ Strategy
A recurring issue in bids and projects is the definition of an optimized integration, verification, validation, and qualification (IVVQ) strategy which can be easily communicated and shared between all the stakeholders. No existing tool has been identified so far in order to ensure continuity and consistency of the data engineered from the Product Breakdown Structure (PBS) up to the integration and test sequence and schedule of a solution (PERT diagram). After a de-risking phase, the tool MAESTRIA has been developed under Eclipse, based on a specific meta-model and implementing the major steps of this value chain. Subsequently, the graphical representation of the IVVQ strategy, once it is defined, can efficiently be exploited for visual management.
Verification of BPMN models
Models of complex systems and systems of systems are described with NAF (NATO Architecture Framework) or DoDAF (DoD Architecture Framework). Business Process Model Notation (BPMN) is part of NAF and allows describing the behavior of the different participants in the model. This notation is used by the French Army as well as its main suppliers to describe the interactions between participants involved in a mission. It is therefore important the models are correct. The VeriMoB project is a research project financed by the DGA (Direction Générale de l’Armement) in collaboration with Eurocontrol and Airbus DS who provided some real use cases. The project aims at developing a tool that will help users to verify their BPMN models. This tool covers three main aspects: a static verification, an interactive execution, an automatic exploration of the possible scenarios. This paper will present the results from this project.

Safety demonstration of Autonomous vehicles: a review and future research questions
The safety demonstration and validation of Autonomous vehicles (AVs) remains a challenging activity. In this paper, we firstly review what those challenges are and how they affect the safety validation of the AV. Then, we particularly focus on the simulation-based validation process, which seems to be inevitable among the recommended safety validation approaches. We show what is actually done and required in terms of scenarios generation, their assessment taking into account uncertainty and the simulation architecture to test and validate them. Finally, we end our review by summarizing key research questions that need to be addressed to help with this safety validation issue.
An Analysis of Bike Share Systems in Urban Areas
In a city, one of the most important systems needed to ensure urban flow is a transportation system. Within that system is a bike share system, which is a newer addition to cities compared to the already existing transportation options. To ensure it satisfies the main goal of the system, to provide an additional method of getting around a crowded city, it will be analyzed through perspective breakdown, value added analysis, shaping forces, causal loops, and the conceptagon. These thinking tools help to change the way we look at this complex problem and its solutions within the bigger picture. This analysis demonstrates how a bike share system fits into an urban society.
School Shootings in the U.S. – Where to Begin
This paper focuses on a four-phase approach for describing the process whereby a school shooter realizes the activities leading up to the attack Desire to Act, Authority to Act, Means to Act, and Opportunity to Act. Greater emphasis is given to the first two phases, and the concept of ‘Authority to Act” is examined closely. Confronted with the awful reality of a school shooting, one of the most difficult questions in everyone’s mind is, “How could they do such a thing”? The answer lies in the belief that they have the authority to act and a better understanding of this component may one day provide enhanced tools for prevention. A systems thinking approach is used to discover key relationships within the problem set that lead to new insights into the true nature of the problem. This paper will use this modern set of tools to investigate the causal factors which influence school shooters.
Identifying Focal Points in IT Project Governance using a Synthetic and Systems Thinking Approach
An effective project governance framework enables the project stakeholders to take the right actions to guide a project to success, and an efficient governance framework does so elegantly by a minimum number of actions necessary for the project success. Project governance provides direction in identifying the critical elements for project success and with techniques to measure its progress. There are several standards and tools available for the management of IT projects, yet there is an increase in the number of projects failing to attain the objective, deadline and budget. Complexities and uncertainties have increased in IT projects with the need to achieve innovation and the need for using emergent technologies. This situation makes it difficult for project proponents to assure project governance approaches for success. This article first analyses IT project life cycle activities and various reported IT project successes and failures. Then the systems thinking approach is applied to synthesise factors that can lead to failure at each stage of a project lifecycle. This information is then mapped to a complex system governance model to identify the order in which activities should be performed to obtain optimal results irrespective of the nature of the project.
Implementing Organizational Cybernetics for the Next Generation of Digital Business Models
ETSI identified that “future work will take into consideration heterogeneous networks using LTE, 5G fixed and WiFi technologies that will include developer friendly and standard APIs, standard based interface among multi-access hosts and an alignment with NFV architecture”. However, the term added value requires disruptive technology that can provide value from a customer perspective which leads to characterizing the value stream for the products service(s). The main synthesis of this paper is to investigate disruptive IoT technology opportunities and user needs for securing interoperable connections of the next generation of digital business models. The following objectives will be analysed and presented; i) the customer objectives (identifying the system requirements and system design) for wireless communications; ii) IoT System dynamics and its value chain; iii) protocols, open API economy, and market analytics; iv) electronic transactions within the finance sector; and v) security. The outcome of this paper will inform the reader of the operational requirements assessments needed to provide Seamless Mobility through the management process of organizational cybernetics.
Managing Margins under Uncertainties
Engineers account for uncertainties by using Design Margins, typically by introducing them implicitly. Although methods for quantifying uncertainty are well established at discipline level, they are not applied systematically. A hierarchy of assumed independent design margins makes it difficult to deduce architect level margins. Further, the implicit application of margins and reserve factors also obfuscates the mutualisation of the margins. Therefore, uncertainty aggregation is difficult, in the quantitative sense, leading to potential over design. Quantifying these uncertainties, making them explicit and aggregating them correctly enable the discovery of appropriate margins to manage the identified risks and opportunities. We show how uncertainties, arising at different levels in a design process, may be aggregated to provide variations in the performance metrics of a complex system. The approach is illustrated through a case study based on a notional aircraft; the performances metric chosen for this example is the cruise fuel consumption.
Simulation architecture definition for complex systems design: A tooled methodology
For the design of complex systems like in the automotive industry, the use of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is being considered as a promising solution in order to formalize and communicate information. Numerical simulation is also routinely used as a tool to answer potential design questions that arise. However the link between MBSE and simulation still needs further improvement. In this work, a tooled methodology is proposed in order to enhance the link between system architecture and numerical simulation. In a first step, a solicitation package is formalized and implemented in a SysML-based tool to define the simulation needs. In a second step, a tool that allows to define the simulation architecture and to pilot the execution of the simulation is developed. We show that thanks to the proposed process and exchange format between the system and simulation architects, model reuse and agility is improved in a complex systems design.
Synchronization of system architecture, multi-physics and safety models
To face the growing complexity of technical systems, engineers have to design models in order to perform simulations. To avoid
inconsistencies, the integration of different models coming from various engineering disciplines is one of nowadays main industrial challenges. In this article we present model synchronization, a framework to ensure consistency between models coming from different engineering domains, based on S2ML (System Structure Modeling Language). We show how the introduced framework can be used to handle consistency between system architecture models (using SysML language), safety models (using AltaRica 3.0 language) and multi-physics simulation models (using Modelica language).
Towards a Cross-Domain Modeling Approach in System-of-Systems Architectures
Modeling a System is a challenging task, especially if more than one domain has to be considered. The scenario of Cross-Domain Modeling arises more and more in the future concerning Smart Cities, as the Electric Vehicle (EV) needs to be integrated into the Smart Grid (SG) and accordingly the Grid faces an emerging behaviour, regarding the energy-management. State of the art Frameworks like Smart Grid Architecture Model (SGAM), Automotive Reference Architecture Model (ARAM), or Reference Architecture Model Industrie 4.0 (RAMI 4.0) consider all these aspects and are used to model such systems, but the combination of these domains is still an issue. The Software Platform Embedded Systems (SPES) Framework provides a base for the modeling of systems belonging to certain domains and with proven modeling-theories a new approach towards the modeling of System of Systems (SoS)-Architectures is needed. Therefore, this paper concerns the problems of modeling SoS-Architectures and investigates the possibility to combine domains and to map them to the SPES-Framework.
A Multiobjective Systems Architecture Model for Sensor Selection in Autonomous Vehicle Navigation
Understanding and quantifying the performance of sensing architectures on autonomous vehicles is a necessary step towards certification. However, once this evaluation can be performed, the combinatorial number of potential sensors on the vehicle limits the efficiency of a design tradespace exploration. Several figures of merit emerge when choosing a sensor suite; its performance for a specific autonomy task, its monetary cost, energy consumption, and contribution to the latency of the entire system. In this paper, we present formulations to evaluate a sensor combination across these dimensions for the localization and mapping task, as well as a method to enumerate architectures around the Pareto Front efficiently. We find that, on a benchmarked environment for this task, combinations with LiDARs are situated on the Pareto Front.
Gas Turbine Design at Rolls-Royce – Exploring the Limitations of a Systems Engineering Approach
The development of a civil aerospace gas turbine engine within the required timescale and resource constraints presents a considerable challenge. How does a team of hundreds of engineers organize itself, not just to design the thousands of high technology components required, but to manage their interactions in order to ensure that the engine operates according to customer expectations and continues to function safely even in the event of a malfunction? In organizing the work, some elements map onto established systems principles, fitting well the model of a functional system. Other elements map less well and present a challenge to current thinking, which this paper explores.

From self-driving cars to e-scooters, new and established players are scrambling to enter the mobility market. Time is of the essence, but safety is a key requirement, because customers expect it and regulation requires it.
Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) focuses on creating domain models as the primary means for managing and exploiting the system description, rather than documents. MBSE promises better management of complexity, reduced testing effort, and improved management of change by taking advantage of the formal relationships between the model elements. But this comes at the price of large overhead and the exclusion of a many stakeholders who are unable or unwilling to understand and interpret the models.
But between documents and formal system models, there is a third option: lightweight requirements modeling. Rather than using a modeling language like SysML, we instead work with entities and relationships. This approach has been used quite successfully for the last 20 years. But a new generation of tools leverages the requirements models even more effectively for crucial activities, like collaboration, change management, progress tracking, coverage, risk management trade-offs, and consistency checks.
Crucially, requirements modeling provides three capabilities necessary for new mobility: First, properly used, it supports compliance with IEC 61508 in general, and ISO 26262 in particular. These are two standards for functional safety development, which are often required in new mobility. Second, requirements modeling supports continuous engineering, which is crucial for agility and responsiveness to change, without sacrificing quality and compliance. Third, if done right, requirements models are useful for and accepted by all stakeholders — including management, marketing, engineering, and quality assurance.
Requirements modeling and MBSE are not mutually exclusive: If some stakeholders need the formality of systems modeling, integration allows alignment and cross-model traceability.
In this talk, we’ll illustrate these concepts by pulling examples from customers of Jama Software, from industries like autonomous driving, e-bikes, automotive semiconductors, and more.
