Abstract: This paper highlights the importance of integration in engineering practices and provides an overview for integration from two perspectives: system hierarchy and system behavior. Furthermore, the paper presents the Safety Cube theory for system of systems integration. Safety Cube simultaneously captures both hierarchical and behavioral perspectives required for integration in system of systems. An example application for the house hold robots has been presented through the paper.
