Combat Mission Effectiveness

OEE– Overall Equipment Effectiveness, is a quantifying term which has been evolved from production lines effectiveness measurements. The term depicts in simple words to do the right function (Performance), in the right way (Quality) at the right time (Availability). The mathematical equation is: OEE= P x Q x A Using this idea, which is well…

How Complex is the World – An Update

From “Governing a Liquid Society”, by J. Marczyk, 2019. It is said that the World is complex and that it is becoming more complex every year. This statement appears to be true, but just how complex is that? Complexity is certainly the hallmark of our time. Systems which grow or evolve tend spontaneously to states…

Complexity – A Short Introduction

From “Governing a Liquid Society”, by J. Marczyk, 2019. Complexity, apart from being a characteristic of all systems – it is as important as energy – is what most of us think it to be: a measure of how something is intricate, involved, difficult. More intricate systems require more information to describe the way they…

QCM is Artificial Intuition.

The Quantitative Complexity Theory (QCT) has been conceived around a complexity metric discovered in the early 2000s by J. Marczyk and his team. Based on the theory, a technology has been built – Quantitative Complexity Management (QCM). Both software and hardware solutions have been developed. QCM is a new form of Artificial Intelligence that reaches…

Complexity and the Importance of Structure

The evolution of man, ever since the first hominids appeared, has been driven and characterized by numerous factors of diverse nature, such as geography, climate, ethnicity, superstitions and, with time, religion, art, science and philosophy, just to name a few.  However, the common thread that may be observed throughout history is the formation of structures…

Multimorbidity – The AFFIRMO Project

AFFIRMO is a recently funded Horizon 2020 five-year research project. Multimorbidity is a common condition in older age, and can substantially influence individuals’ health and quality of life, making management more difficult. A single-disease approach with fragmented care is still prevalent in current healthcare systems despite multimorbidity representing a heterogeneous spectrum of disease combination(s). On…

Complexity and Complexity Bounds

A fundamental property of the complexity metric developed by Ontonix is that it has bounds – a lower and an upper bound. This means that it cannot assume infinite values (both negative and positive). If it could it wouldn’t be a good metric. All good metrics satisfy the laws of physics For example, a temperature…
