Governance through Dynamic Reconfiguration of the Structure in Complex Networks
The existing frameworks for architecting enterprises as well as extended enterprises at best have a static approach. The major limitation of such perspective is inability to capture real time changes in the structure of a complex network, imposed by environmental forces. A dynamic approach to reconfiguration of structure in complex networks should be developed using modeling and simulation tools and methods. The project should propose a dynamic method of architecting systems together with a tool that applies it to a real life case.

- Experienced systems engineer with in depth knowledge of systems architecture and familiar with existing architecting frameworks for extended enterprises. The candidate must be fluent in computer programming Java-based or C++), and familiar with available open source software for enterprise architecture design. Understanding the concept of governance and applications of architecture in governing complex systems is also crucial. Passing Fundamentals of Enterprise Systems (ES-621) and Governing Development (ES-677) is a pre-requisite for this project.
