The elephant in the mist: What we don't know about the design, development, test and management of complex systems


The authors survey the literature on complex systems to develop a fundamental critique of the systems engineering methods that value-driven design will attempt to replace. The current approach to systems engineering applies industrial revolution methods to information revolution problems. Not only the flowdown of requirements, but also the ability to verify and validate large engineered systems is brought into question.
