Integration and Interoperability Models for Systems of Systems

April 2004 Presentation
David J. Carney, Tricia Oberndorf

David J. Carney and Tricia Oberndorf propose and discuss a unified model of interoperability for the integration of system of systems (SoSs) in this 2004 presentation.


Software Engineering Institute


Appropriate models have proven to be of considerable value in many engineering
domains. The SEI is in need of such models for integrating collections of software systems. Efforts have produced several interesting and useful models, butmuch more work is needed.

The trend toward ever-increasing interconnection between systems will continue. The nature and quality of these interconnections will be governed by decisions already being made and the effects of these decisions may be long-lasting.
