Stateful requirements monitoring for self-repairing socio-technical systems

Lingxiao Fu, Xin Peng, Yijun Yu, John Mylopoulos, Wenyun Zhao
2012 2012 20th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference (RE)  
Self-repair is complicated by the multi-agent nature of socio-technical systems, which demands that requirements monitoring and self-repair be done in a decentralized fashion.  ...  Results from our experiments suggest effective and precise support for a wide range of self-repairing decisions in a socio-technical setting.  ...  Also, existing proposals generally do not support decentralized requirements monitoring and self-repairing for socio-technical systems.  ...

Finite State Machine Modelling to Facilitate the Resilience of Infrastructures: Reflections

Evelin Engler, Michael Baldauf, Frank Sill Torres, Stephan Brusch
2020 Infrastructures  
Usually, infrastructures are engineered socio-technical systems or systems-of-systems.  ...  However, special attention is paid to monitoring because, on the one hand, monitoring is one of the cornerstones of resilience and, on the other hand, Scott and Ferris define a state that is emphasized  ...  For the sake of generality, each function is depicted in Figure 3 as a socio-technical function.  ...
