Book : The Engineering Design of Systems: Models and Methods (2000)

The Engineering Design of Systems: Models and Methods

Publisher:John Wiley & Sons

Author(s): Buede, Dennis M.

Published: 2000 ISBN: 0471282251 • 488 pages Delivery Format: Hard Copy - Hardback

Summary

From the publisher:

A basic text for courses that involve the use of models and methods in the engineering design of systems, this book features topics concerning the systems engineering process and the modelling and design fundamentals needed to support this process. Industry uses many of the methods and models discussed in this book, but seldom in the integrated manner presented here.

Taking the approach that performing systems engineering activities involves modelling of many different types, this text aims to enable students to learn by experimenting with such modelling techniques. A number of generally understood systems are used to convey these modelling concepts and test the students’ ability to create realistic models.

Book : UML for Systems Engineering (2001)

UML for Systems Engineering

Categories: General SystemsModellingRequirements

Tags: bookholtmodellingsysmlsystems engineeringuml

Publisher:Institute of Electrical Engineers

Author(s): Holt, Jon

Published: 2001 ISBN: 0852961057 • 296 pages Delivery Format: Hard Copy - Hardback

Summary

From the publisher:

This book is based on a very successful IEE course which is in turn based on many years research into modelling and the Unified Modelling Language (UML) by the author.

The UML is the new industry standard for modelling software-intensive systems and this book looks at several applications where the UML can be used as part of a generic approach to aid many kinds of problem solving and information modelling. These include: modelling standards, processes and procedures, requirements engineering, implementation of processes, assessment of tools, defining a quality system, lifecycles and lifecycle models and software.

The book is intended to bring UML to the wider audience of systems engineers, and its application to real examples for non-software applications; a problem which is widely acknowledged in other texts, but rarely addressed.

Book : UML for Systems Engineering (Second Edition) (2004)

UML for Systems Engineering (Second Edition)

Publisher:Institute of Electrical Engineers

Author(s): Holt, Jon

Published: 2004 ISBN: 0863413544 • 376 pages Delivery Format: Hard Copy - Hardback

Summary

From the publisher:

Scope: Up until a few years ago there were over 150 different modelling languages available to software developers. This vast array of choice however, only served to severely hinder effective communication. Therefore, to combat this, every methodologist and many companies agreed to speak the same language, hence the birth of the unified modelling language (UML). The UML offers a means to communicate complex information in a simple way using visual modelling; i.e. drawing diagrams to create a model of a system.

This fully revised edition, based on a training course given by the author, coincides with the release of UML version 2 by the standard body, the Object Management Group, and covers the significant changes that have occurred since its release. It also includes material on life cycle management, examining the way the UML can be used to control and manage projects and the UML systems engineering profile.
