The fourth article ("Understanding Supply Networks from Complex Adaptive Systems", by Jamur Marchi, Rolf Erdmann and Carlos Rodriguez) provides a theoretical rationale for the application of complex adaptive systems (CAS) to the study of supply networks, by integrating system and complexity as well as dynamic and holistic elements.
Testing dynamically adaptive systems is extremely challenging because both the structure and behavior of the system may change during its execution.
