Advanced Systems Engineering - The systems of the future

Many systems – both existing and still-to-be-developed – are primarily cyber-physical systems with high-performance functionality that are connected via digital networks with users, as well as with other systems.

Typical for these systems is that the high proportion of software enables the implementation of high-performance functions that go well beyond what has been possible to date. This creates major potential for innovations in various areas ranging from artificial intelligence, human-centric interaction and automation, to autonomous systems.

When designing software-intensive systems, advanced systems engineering requires a clean, scientific foundation and resolute integration of software development methods. Key to advanced systems engineering is utilizing digital technologies during the product development process, as well as exploiting the synergies in between.

In the current whitepaper titled “Advanced systems engineering – the systems of the future”, fortiss founder Prof. Manfred Broy, in concert with Dr. Wolfgang Böhm and Prof. Bernhard Rumpe, describes in comprehensive terms the paradigm change from mechanical machine engineering, to the engineering of connected, information-centric systems.
