9780470405482: Systems Engineering Principles and Practice

The Bestselling Guide to the Engineering of Complex Systems, Now Thoroughly Updated

The first edition of this unique interdisciplinary guide has become the foundational systems engineering textbook for colleges and universities worldwide. It has helped countless readers learn to think like systems engineers, giving them the knowledge, skills, and leadership qualities they need to be successful professionals. Now, colleagues of the original authors have upgraded and expanded the book to address the significant advances in this rapidly changing field.

An outgrowth of the Johns Hopkins University Master of Science Program in Engineering, Systems Engineering: Principles and Practice provides an educationally sound, entry-level approach to the subject, describing tools and techniques essential for the development of complex systems. Exhaustively classroom tested, the text continues the tradition of utilizing models to assist in grasping abstract concepts, emphasizing application and practice. This Second Edition features:

  • Expanded topics on advanced systems engineering concepts beyond the traditional systems engineering areas and the post-development stage

  • Updated DOD and commercial standards, architectures, and processes

  • New models and frameworks for traditional structured analysis and object-oriented analysis techniques

  • Improved discussions on requirements, systems management, functional analysis, analysis of alternatives, decision making and support, and operational analysis

  • Supplemental material on the concept of the system boundary

  • Modern software engineering techniques, principles, and concepts

  • Further exploration of the system engineer's career to guide prospective professionals

  • Updated problems and references

The Second Edition continues to serve as a graduate-level textbook for courses introducing the field and practice of systems engineering. This very readable book is also an excellent resource for engineers, scientists, and project managers involved with systems engineering, as well as a useful textbook for short courses offered through industry seminars.

William N. Sweet, now retired, was associate department head of the Fleet Systems Department at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.

Samuel J. Seymour is the systems engineering vice chair at the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering. He served under Professor Kossiakoff for more than twenty-five years.

Steven M. Biemer is an instructor at the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering. He assisted Professor Kossiakoff in developing the first edition of this book.

Review:

"Aimed at advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, this textbook is intended as an introduction to the developmetn and acquisition of complex technical systems ... The second edition is intended to offer expansion, integration and clarification to maintain relevance and currency." (Times Higher Education Supplement {Texbook Guide}, 3 November 2011)

"The book is very readable and gives a particularly good grounding in the subject of systems engineering. It is therefore a valuable volume for any electronics engineering student, practising engineer, or as a reference for a company designing any form of equipment needing a systems engineering approach." (Radio-electronics.com, 1 October 2011)
