Abstract

Structural complexity metrics provide information about the structure of technical and socio-technical systems, represented as networks. However, calculating multiple metrics of a network manually requires a lot of time and effort. Thus, to increase the efficiency in structural complexity management, a tool in Soley Studio is proposed that performs analyses of complex networks automatically. This tool analyses socio-technical systems networks using a set of structural metrics and supports the visualization of the results. Here, three of the structural metrics implemented are presented in depth and applied to a case study of an electrical Formula Student racing car.
