According to the INCOSE Systems Engineering Vision 2025, better understanding of complex systems is one of the main value driven practices to be developed in Systems Engineering. Particularly, decision support methods to enable more rapid analysis of multiple alternative designs and optimization of complex systems with multiple variables and uncertainty has been identified as one of the top needs of the systems engineering practice. After requirements analysis, one of the major Systems Engineering activities in the product life cycle is the definition of the logical architecture. At this phase, the logical elements, system configuration, and complexity of the overall system architecture are defined. Generating trade spaces having the desired characteristics to analyse multiple alternative designs of the complex system is at the core of this activity. However, as systems get more complex as more functionality is added and more subsystems or modules are included, visualizing and assessing an ever-increasing complexity of the system is not an easy task during this phase. In this work, a framework is presented to quantify complexity, analyse the allocation of system structural complexity among subsystems, and generate effective trade spaces to facilitate trade space analysis.
