SoSECIE: A Conceptual Model for Analyzing Information Quality in System-of-Systems
Tuesday, February 6, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
The System of Systems Engineering Collaborators Information Exchange (SoSECIE) is a web-based seminar series organized by the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (SE) in association with the National Defense Industrial Associations’s SoS Engineering committee. The goal of this series is to provide guidance, education and training for SoS and dissemination of engineering best practices within the government, military, contractors, academia and International partners.
The webinar will be held on Tuesday, February 6th from 11 am-12 pm ET.
Speaker: Dr. Mohamad Gharib, University of Florence – DiMaI
Title: A Conceptual Model for Analyzing Information Quality in System-of-Systems
Abstract: A System-of-Systems (SoS) is an integration of a finite number of Constituent Systems (CSs), which are networked together for achieving a certain higher goal. Therefore, integration is the key viability of any SoS. Although the integration of CSs can be achieved by the exchange of information, no existing work has considered the quality of such information. Without considering Information Quality (IQ), a CS may depend on inaccurate, incomplete, inconsistent, invalid, and/or untrustworthy information, which might lead to its failure, and in turn to catastrophic incidents in the case of critical SoS. The main objective of the brief is proposing a novel conceptual model that provides the required concepts for analyzing for SoS. We illustrate the utility of the model with an example concerning the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) domain.
Bio: Dr. Mohamad Gharb is currently a postdoctoral researcher under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Bondavalli at the University of Florence. He is conducting research in modeling and analyzing Cyber-Physical System of Systems, with special emphasis on three main areas: 1 – Information Quality, 2 – Functional Safety Requirements and 3 – Privacy Requirements. He was a postdoctoral researcher under the supervision of Prof. John Mylopoulos at the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, University of Trento, Italy. He has obtained a Ph.D. in April 2015, from the same University, under the supervision of Prof. Paolo Giorgini. His Ph.D. work mainly focused on Modeling and Reasoning about Information Quality Requirements for Socio-technical Systems.
