Abstract. Interoperability is a key concern in systems-of-systems (SoS). Numerous frameworks have been proposed to deal with this, but they are generally on a high level and do not provide specific guidance for technical implementation. However, in the context of simulation, the Levels of Conceptual Interoperability Model (LCIM) has been proposed. Also, the semantic web initiative has been introduced to provide description logic information to web pages. This presentation investigates how these two concepts can be combined into a general approach for SoS interoperability. It also expands on the LCIM model by providing more details about the world models of a system and its content on the higher levels of interoperability, and discusses experiences from applications.

Jakob Axelsson received an MSc in computer science in 1993, followed by a PhD in computer systems in 1997, both from Linköping University, Sweden. He was in the automotive industry with Volvo Group and Volvo Cars 1997-2010. He is now a full professor of computer science at Mälardalen University, Sweden and a senior research leader in systems-of-systems at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. His research interests are focused on all aspects of systems-of-systems engineering, and in particular system architecture. Prof. Axelsson is a member of INCOSE and has served as chairman of the Swedish chapter.

Connect to your community of practice. Mix with people who have the same professional interests as you do, but with a diversity of perspective beyond daily workmates. It comes in handy when you need help or answers to questions outside your accumulated experience, need a connection at another organization, or simply want some mind stretching thought.

Meeting announcements, event notices, and GlobalMeet links routinely go to all INCOSE members within the Chapter’s geographic territory; as well as to names on an information list open to one and all. Sign up for the Chapter Info List by emailing the Chapter Secretary.
