## CPS: Large: Science of Integration for Cyber-Physical Systems

System integration today relies on ad-hoc methods: After all the components have been designed and manufactured, existing integration methods simply aim at 'making it work somehow'. As the complexity of engineered systems continues to increase, our lack of a systematic theory for systems integration creates more and more problems. Finding a solution is difficult because system integration is the phase where essential design concerns - usually separated into physical systems, software and platform engineering - come together and the hidden, poorly understood interactions and conflicts suddenly surface. This makes system integration particularly challenging in CPS where fundamentally different physical and computational design concerns intersect.

In this project, the Institute of Software Integrated Systems (ISIS) of Vanderbilt University, the Institute for Systems Research (ISR) of University of Notre Dame, University of Maryland and General Motors Research teamed up to create a new scientific foundation for system integration.
