Communicating risks, addressing the laws of complexity and satisfying the five roles of system science with ORE. Indeed It has been stated that “50% of the problems with communication arise from individuals using the same words with different meanings. In fact the remaining 50% come from individuals using different words with the same meanings” (Appleby, Forlin et al. 2003). In fact, ORE solves the communication problem by using consistently a well defined glossary.
Riskope can include Business Intelligence and Internet of Things in the deployment of ORE at client’s request
ORE satisfies all five roles of system science (Warfield 2003)
- describes the physical world and portrays the results of interactions among a few of its components;
- proposes a generic design;
- is a constituent of “science of complexity”. In other words it enlarges the domain of demonstrable results in the service of humanity; and finally
- is actionable, as it has linguistic clarity and a model that suggests clear direction of actions essential to resolve emergency.
Moreover, ORE addresses several of Warfield’s Twenty Laws of Complexity (Warfield 2002) as it:
- does not require humans to process more that three components at a time (triadic constraint).
- renders a parsimonious description of any risk scenario and finally
- addresses the challenge of vertical incoherence. In other words it can show the right aggregated level to decision makers at different organizational levels.
