Trans-Atlantic Modelling and Simulation For Cyber-Physical Systems


Stakeholder Analysis Report

This report will mainly comprise the framework for stakeholder classification. The list of stakeholders will be maintained separately by the project team, but will not be included in this report.

Test cases for M&S validation

The test cases will be published as five chapters, individually downloadable in pdf format. It is intended to maintain the website for at least five years after completion of the project, but this format is chosen so that the freely available test cases can be retained by researchers for future use. It is recognised that this makes openness a pre-requisite on any test cases that are offered, however, the organisation of material will be foreground work by TAMS4CPS project and no restrictions will be placed on its use.

Definitional Framework

Providing the concept base (common vocabulary and M&S classification) that underpins agenda-generating workshops. The deliverable will take the form of a glossary and a classification framework for M&S, as applicable to CPS. It is also noted that CPS cannot realistically be considered to be all alike (see for example (Dahmann & Baldwin, 2008), and so obvious classifications of CPS will be included, although it is recognised that these may be updated subsequently. Although focused on supporting the later work of TAMS4CPS, this deliverable will also be helpful for other projects seeking to clarify and define CPS activities. It will be published online and freely available to others for use in projects with M&S aspects (i.e. most projects in CPS). Dahmann, J. & Baldwin, K., 2008. Understanding the Current State of US Defense Systems of Systems and the Implications for Systems Engineering. Montreal, IEEE.

Impact Assessment Report

This will be a comparatively short report that provides information about likely impacts of successful research in M&S according to pursuit of the strategic agenda. It will also identify potential barriers to impact. The purpose is to provide researchers with information that will be useful for planning collaborative projects in M&S for CPS.

Website and Brochure

The website and brochure will provide information about the project and the website will be a resource through which the M&S for CPS constituency can access project deliverables. The website will be maintained for five years beyond the end of the project.

Research and Collaboration Strategic Agenda (final)

The final SRAC will be updated to reflect peer review and include endorsements from researchers who will be the community which implement it.

State of the Art report on M&S for CPS

Because of the anticipated breadth of material that must be included, this deliverable will be provided as a web resource allowing users to navigate around it easily. The State of the Art report is essential to provide the context in which the strategic agenda must be understood. For a period of time, it will be the baseline from which collaborative research can build. The workshop presentations will be available from month 6, but the final deliverable is the navigable report.

Research and Collaboration Strategic Agenda (draft 1)

The purpose of D3.1 is to provide the completed strategic agenda in a form suitable for review and consideration by the community that it serves. Although there is a staged approach to its generation, researchers will wish to consider the integrated and completed agenda to take an holistic view prior to endorsement. Thus, D3.1 will be structured according to the final form of the SRAC and be complete in terms of content. It will be published as a document for review.
