About this title


This book provides an overview of systems engineering, its important elements, and aspects of management that will lead in the direction of building systems with a greater likelihood of success. Emphasis is placed upon the following elements:

- How the systems approach is defined, and how it guides the systems engineering processes
- How systems thinking helps in combination with the systems approach and systems engineering
- Time lines that define the life cycle dimensions of a system
- System properties, attributes, features, measures and parameters
- Approaches to architecting systems
- Dealing with requirements, synthesis, analysis and cost effectiveness considerations
- Life cycle costing of systems
- Modeling, simulation and other analysis methods
- Technology and its interplay with risk and its management
- Systems acquisition and integration
- Systems of systems
- Thinking outside the box
- Success and failure factors
- Software engineering
- Standards
- Systems engineering management

Together, these top-level aspects of systems engineering need to be understood and mastered in order to improve the way we build systems, as they typically become larger and more complex.
