Abstract: System reconfiguration is essential in management of complex systems because it allows companies better flexibility and adaptability. System evolutions have to be managed in order to ensure system effectivity and efficiency through its whole lifecycle, in particular when it comes to complex systems that have decades of development and up to hundreds of years of usage. System reconfiguration can be considered and deployed in different lifecycle phases. Two significant phases are considered in configuration management and System reconfiguration: development –allowing system performances by modifying the architecture early in the conceptual phase– and operations – allowing optimization of performances
during the in-service phase. This paper gives an overview of a field research been initiated and currently undergoing to capture the strengths and the shortages in the current industrial landscape. It also discusses possible future management strategies with regard to identified issues and challenges.
