Ensuring and demonstrating diverse quality attributes of complex systems: problems of models and cultures

Strigini, L. ORCID: 0000-0002-4246-2866 (2019). Ensuring and demonstrating diverse quality attributes of complex systems: problems of models and cultures. Keynote Paper presented at the GAUSS 2019, 28-31 Oct 2019, Berlin, Germany.

Abstract

We live among very complex systems that work efficiently and safely, apparently justifying our trust in them. Yet justifying that trust and preserving it, while the systems, their environment, and the threats against them, change, is difficult enough to motivate this workshop. This talk focuses on the variety, emphasized in the workshop's program, of "quality attributes that SoSs must satisfy such as reliability, security, resilience": it discusses the need for addressing these diverse attributes together, and the difficulties in doing so, even for "planned" engineered systems, for reasons both technical and cultural; and speculates on how the methods in use can scale towards better assurance for less planned and more complex socio-technical systems.
