Anatomy of a Complex System

Over the years, Realtime systems have increased in complexity. As the systems get complex they get harder and harder to develop as it needs a completely different mindset and tools to develop complex systems. Most tools and techniques that have served us well for years do not scale very well with increasing complexity of systems.

In the future complexity of man made systems will increase dramatically. How will these systems work and operate? Some of these answers can be found right now by examining biological systems. Current state of biological systems represent system architectures that have evolved over millions of years.

Most biological systems are several order of magnitudes more complex than man made system. Nature has a few billion years of experience in developing complex Realtime systems. In this article we will cover some of the characteristics of biological systems and how they can influence development of complex Realtime systems in the future.
