System of Systems Engineering – Systems Analysis and Policy Optimization



The new social/economical/environmental context we are living in necessitates ever-increasing complex and collaborative systems. This has given birth to a new category of systems called System of Systems (SoS). SoS is a collection of interconnected complex systems each of which are independent in structure and governance, occasionally competitors in their activities, but collaborate together, by force or in a volunteer basis, to achieve specific objectives and to look for emergent properties which are not otherwise achievable. Examples of the SoS are System of financial institutions in a country; a regional electrical grid including distributed power generators operating together in an open energy market; or transportation network in provincial, federal, or international level. Treating the previously known complex systems in SoS context implies new modeling, simulation, and analysis engineering tools together with new optimization methodologies. The main benefits, especially for policy makers and authorities, would then be the simplicity of analysis and adjustments of policies which results in costs reduction for both authorities and stakeholders. In this talk we review the concept of SoS, the differences between SoS and previously known complex systems, and the state of the engineering tools for these systems.



Kyarash received his B.Sc. degree in Electronics Engineering in 2000, Masters and PhD in Control Systems Engineering in 2003 and 2007 respectively. He then joint Atkins Rail in London, UK, as Systems Research Engineer to develop system-oriented frameworks for Safety, Security, Sustainability, and Risk Assessment. He was a research fellow at LACM laboratory, Laval University and a research officer at Centre de recherche industrielle du Quebec (CRIQ), Quebec from 2008 to 2013 with a main focus on Complex Dynamic Systems, System of Systems Engineering, Energy Efficiency and Continuous Improvement with the application in energy intensive industrial processes. He is currently with Honeywell Aerospace Toronto, as systems engineer working on Integrated Air conditioning and air Supply Systems for Boeing and Gulfstream aircrafts.

Kyarash is a Senior Member of the IEEE, he was the founder and the chair of Young Professional Affinity Group in Quebec City section and is currently holding Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS) chapter chair in Toronto Section. He is also registered professional engineer in Quebec and in Ontario Provinces.
