Summary

From the publisher:

No matter what field you are working in or studying, Advanced Systems Thinking, Engineering, and Management offers you a comprehensive understanding of systems ideas and methods to help you achieve unmatched success with your challenging projects. This unique resource helps you add a systems-scientific grounding to systems engineering enterprises, showing you how to solve intractable problems, design systems to accommodate complex environments, and manage both creative and operational systems. You learn how to conceive, design and manage a systems engineering process for optimal results.

The book is filled with examples and case studies from a wide range of areas, from integrated transport systems, security systems, and defense procurement, to missile defense architectures, famine relief, and managing markets. This innovative reference introduces a generic systems lifecycle theory that helps you understand how systems form, persist and decay, and presents a 5-layer classification for systems engineering. You discover how to use a generic reference model that allows systems of all types to be addressed within a common framework. Moreover, the book reveals how architecture is used to create system emergent properties, capabilities and behaviors.

Book : System Engineering Management (1992)

System Engineering Management

Publisher:John Wiley & Sons

Author(s):Blanchard, Benjamin S.

Published: 1992 • ISBN: 0471190861 • 480 pages • Delivery Format: Hard Copy - Hardback

Available from: Amazon (US)Amazon (UK)Amazon (DE)

Summary

From the publisher:

System engineering is the application of scientific and engineering efforts to transform a business need into a defined system configuration through the top-down process of requirements, definition, functional analysis, allocation synthesis, design optimization, test and evaluation. The systems engineering process, in its evolution of functional detail and design requirements, has as its goal the achievement of the proper balance between operational, performance, economic and logistics factors.

This volume contains:

  • coverage of different types of systems, particularly in the defence/commercial/private sectors;
  • discussion of requirements analysis;
  • emphasis on "open-architecture" approach to design of the functional analysis and requirements allocation process;
  • coverage of the integration of software into the system engineering and software development process;
  • the use of simulation methods, and rapid prototyping in the coverage of the integration of system test and evaluation into the system engineering process;
  • concurrent engineering focus on the design integration process;
  • international aspects and impacts of the selection and management of suppliers;
  • increased coverage of technical performance measures (TPMs);
  • and the concepts behind Integrated Product and Process Development (IPPD) and Integrated Process Team (IPT).
