The correlation between generic properties of system-of-systems and limits of the human ability to conceptualize is addressed in this paper. The presumption was that the level of complexity necessary for SoS properties to occur is related to the ability or lack of ability of the designers and operators of the system. A concept model of a multi scale framework was developed to clarify both how an observer forms a conceptualization based on the perceived reality, and what this conceptualization is constituted of. The SoS properties were then related to the framework.
