Analysis of Integration Architecture in Integrated Environmental Monitoring System - Development of Front-End Prototype for Decision Support for Drilling in Areas with Sensitive Fauna
MetadataVis full innførsel
This master's thesis is a continuation of the specialization project, which focused on the underlying need for better surveillance of sensitive fauna, during drilling operation, and an industry developed software solution designed to meet this need - ELMO. ELMO is an integrated environmental monitoring software solution that consist of several preexisting systems. By adopting an integration architecture ELMO is able to collect data from several different sources and present the user with valuable information about the risk imposed on corals during drilling operations. This master's thesis is divided into a theoretical part and a practical part. The objective of the theoretical part is to develop a framework for analysing integration architectures in systems-of-systems, and then apply the framework to analyse ELMO's integration architecture. The purpose of the practical part, is to acquire relevant skills and develop a prototype for a user interface that is intended to enhance ELMO's value as a decision support tool during drilling operations.
