Modes, Features, and State-Based Modeling for Clarity and Flexibility

The behavior of a complex system is frequently defined in terms of operational modes—mutually exclusive sets of the system behaviors. Within the operational modes, collections of features define the behavior of the system.

Modeling and Requirements on the Physical Side of Cyber-Physical Systems

In a cyber-physical system (a system where the physical world interacts extensively with—often networked— software), the physical portion of the system resides in the continuous and continual domain. Thus, on the physical side of cyber-physical systems we will have to contend with not only real time requirements but also the continuous and continual nature of the system.

Using Models to Address Challenges in Specifying Requirements for Medical Cyber-Physical Systems

Gathering and analyzing Cyber-Physical System (CPS) requirements pose some challenges to the requirements engineering community warranting a fresh perspective on requirement engineering methods; a perspective that is sensitive to the interplay between the cyber and physical aspects of the system. In this paper we share our experiences and lessons learned in the process of formulating requirements for a generic version of an infusion pump, a commonly used piece of medical equipment.
