Abstract

Complex systems exhibit emergent behaviour. The explanations for this explicit emergent behaviour are often difficult to identify, and usually require understanding of significant parts of system structure and component behaviour to interpret. We present ongoing work on a set of techniques, based on Model-Driven Engineering principles and practices, for helping to reveal explanations for system complexity. We outline the techniques abstractly, and then illustrate parts of them with three examples from the health care, system security and Through-Life Capability Management domains.
