Systems Engineering Integration and Safety
Call for Papers
For all industry sectors safety is one of the main focal points. Organisations and companies have recognised that safety improvements contribute to the achievement of broader business goals. However, as today’s systems are growing in size and complexity, traditional/conventional approaches and tools seem not to be adequate to explain the system’s emergent behaviour. Moreover, systems have a dual identity, which is both social and technical, they are coupled and hence they form Systems-of-Systems.
Academia is feeding industry with new achievements and industry offers a prosperous ground for applied research. Systems Engineering is an engineering discipline, which offers a more holistic approach to dealing with safety of complex systems. This special issue is a unique opportunity to bring together the various industry sectors and academia and present approaches, techniques and tools founded on the principles of Systems Engineering to deal with future safety challenges.
Deadline: 30th April 2019
