New edition of the best-selling systems engineering reference and text, the book is completely updated to add cutting edge technologies and current management philosophies. It features strengthened coverage of different types of systems, particularly in the defense, commercial and private sectors and a new emphasis on "open architecture" approach to design of the functional analysis and requirements allocation process. The new edition also includes an expanded discussion of requirements analysis, increased coverage of technical performance measures (TPMs) and a focus on concurrent engineering in the design integration process.

In today's technology-driven markets, systems are more complex, resources scarcer, and competition fiercer than ever. Ironically, in their drive to be first to market, project managers and design engineers in many companies are reverting to the old short-term, design-it-now-fix-it-later way of operating. The hazards of such an approach should be obvious: quality suffers, production and support costs soar, and customers migrate to competitors. Now more than ever, survival depends upon the strict application of system engineering principles to the development of robust, affordable systems that fully meet user requirements.
System Engineering Management, Second Edition acquaints you with the full range of system engineering concepts, tools, and techniques. With the help of numerous, real-life case studies, Benjamin Blanchard shows you, step by step, how to apply those elements to both large- and small-scale projects. He also arms you with a blueprint for developing, implementing, and managing a total system engineering program in your company.
Professor Blanchard starts by reviewing, in depth, all of the stages of an integrated, top-down, life-cycle approach to design engineering--from analysis of customer requirements to maintenance and support, from definition of system operational concepts through material disposal and recycling. He then turns to a practical discussion of various disciplines applicable to the design process, including reliability and maintainability engineering, human factors, safety, logistics engineering, quality engineering, and value/cost engineering. This material is followed by guidance on how to use a variety of analytical tools, such as those for computer-aided front-end analysis, design review, and feedback control.
The remaining chapters are devoted to crucial management issues, with valuable guidance on the planning and development of System Engineering Management Plans (SEMPs), work breakdown structures (WBSs), cost projections, supplier selection and management, and more.
System Engineering Management, Second Edition is an essential resource for all engineers working in design, planning, and manufacturing. It is also an excellent introductory text for students of system engineering.
Gets you quickly on track with the full range of state-of-the-art system engineering tools and techniques
System Engineering Management is a complete, hands-on guide to making system engineering tools and principles an integral part of the design and development process in your organization. Professor Benjamin Blanchard arms you with a comprehensive, top-down, life-cycle approach that has been proven to reduce cost, speed up the design and development process, improve reliability, and win customers.
Fully revised and updated, this Second Edition features new and expanded coverage of such timely topics as:
* Requirements analysis
* The open architecture approach to functional analysis and allocation
* Rapid prototyping, simulation modeling, and software support systems
* Technical performance measures (TPMs)
* International aspects of supplier selection and management
