Abstract

Whereas traditionally systems were addressing a single product or domain, we can now observe the composition of multiple smart systems that are integrated in a coherent way, leading to a system-of-systems (SoSs). One of the important challenges in SoS engineering is the architecture design that needs to take into account not only the scope but also the aspects related to the different engineering disciplines. Each architecture design is the result of a broad set of design decisions and their justifications, that is, the design rationale. To capture and communicate these architecture decisions, proper modeling and documentation of the architecture is needed. In this paper, we explore the design boundaries of an architecture framework dedicated for SoS. Hereby, we will discuss different potential approaches for devising a SoS architecture framework that includes the necessary architecture viewpoints for designing SoS systems.
