Complexity is a feature of modern life and NOT just because of the smart products that we  have become so reliant upon yet, so readily, take for granted…until they stop working! This is really a lesson FROM the field of (vertical) engineering that has numerous horizontal applications for the rest of us

The complexity of modern products is increasing rapidly. But high complexity is a prelude to vulnerability. It is a fact that excessive complexity leads to inherently fragile situations. But can complexity be taken into account in the design of products?
