First steps towards a mereo-operandi theory for a system feature-based architecting of cyber-physical systems
Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) are characterized by a high-level synergy among hardware, software and cyberware constituents. Though there has been intense research in various fields of complex engineering systems, still no advanced and comprehensive system design methodologies are available that would facilitate design and development of CPSs in various contexts and applications. This paper reports on the first steps and results of developing a comprehensive trans-disciplinary theory for conceptualization, modeling and realization of system architectures through a unified epistemological platform. The essence of the proposed theory is the fusion of mereotopological, modus operandi and CPS knowledge.
