Complexity of Systems: Object Oriented Instruments for Critical Infrastructure Protection



The research of complex systems is transforming to an important issue in the natural and social global sciences. It is frequently implied the existence of a complex system transversely all the disciplines. For the Critical Infrastructure Protection context, there is need to illustrate a complex system, and study a fundamental set of features that are generally related with complex systems. The notion of complexity is defined to exist as a part of a new unifying framework for science, in a revolutionary way - our comprehension of systems and their behavior. It is quite difficult to forecast and control the economy of the world or the human mind, but the procedure of object-oriented technology offers us solutions that can be implemented in software architectures with easy possibilities of extension, maintenance and testing. This paper studies the complexity of systems in regional areas defined as Critical Infrastructures and the approach of protecting them by using object-oriented instruments, metrics and programming. To validate the efficacy of an object-oriented instrument solution, the methodology is merged with the TopEase® - Decision Support System, developed by Action 4 Value, a Swiss-German company, as a distinct example.
