ESI symposium 2017
Managing complexity in embedded systems engineering

ESI symposium 2017 

Complex to complicated

“Why focus on complexity rather than simplicity?”, Verma asks his audience retorically. “Because we tried simplicity ant it proves to be way harder. We therefore quickly went back to complexity again.” Complexity, he says, increases in the entire universe – in nature and in society and not least in systems engineering. It is society's and the system architect's task to deal with complexity, as with the growing fragility that is linked to it. “The system engineer's toolbox for that, mainly dating from the 1940-1970 period, begins to fall short. There is a need for change, but a lot has to be overcome before a new toolbox will become mainstream.”

Océ embraces complexity

As hightech systems almost equal complexity, Océ has decided to embrace this complexity as a way to master it. Two approaches stand out: to apply modeling to quantify uncertainty as much as possible and as a way to move towards virtual prototyping. The second aspects is to create as flat an R&D hierarchy as possible to create maximum flexibility and to make the most of each individual's contribution in development.
