|Title:||Boundary Discovery in Complex Systems|
|Published:||September 05, 2012|
|Abstract:||Many of today‰s extremely complex meta-systems are cross-domain, they require development by multiple stakeholder groups with different goals each implementing a sub-set of the functionality required for the entire meta-system to operate. As these systems become more complex it becomes more difficult to understand how the sub-systems fit together into the whole. This paper investigates leveraging stakeholder use cases by quantifying the similarities between the use case documents and using clustering algorithms to help understand sub system boundaries.|
