Book : Introduction to Systems Engineering (2000)

Introduction to Systems Engineering

Publisher:John Wiley & Sons

Author(s):Sage, Andrew P.Armstrong, James E.

Published: 2000 • ISBN: 0471027669 • 547 pages • Delivery Format: Hard Copy - Hardback

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

Summary

From the publisher:

Systems engineering (SE), or the engineering of large-scale systems, is key to achieving reliable, efficient, cost-effective products and services in diverse fields, including communication and network systems, software engineering, information systems, manufacturing, command and control, and defense systems acquisition and procurement.

This book offers a unique introduction to the world of systems engineering, focusing on analysis and problem-solving techniques that can be applied throughout the life cycle of product systems and service systems. While the authors provide a framework for the functional levels involved in systems engineering processes and system management, the bulk of the discussion is devoted to the practical application of formulation, analysis, and interpretation methods.

Through the use of real-world examples and useful graphs, readers will learn to:

  • Choose the most appropriate methods and tools for a given project
  • Apply issue formulation methods to assure that the right problem has been identified
  • Work with formal analysis methods to assure that the problem is solved correctly
  • Apply issue interpretation methods to insure that decisions reflect human values and technological realities, and thereby make interpretation work for them in the decision-making process
  • Develop an appreciation for the engineering and troubleshooting of large systems

Book : Requirements Engineering - A Good Practice Guide (1997)

Requirements Engineering - A Good Practice Guide

Publisher:John Wiley & Sons

Author(s):Sawyer, PeteSomerville, Ian

Published: 1997 • ISBN: 0471974447 • 404 pages • Delivery Format: Hard Copy - Paperback

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

Summary

From the publisher:

Requirements engineering is the process of discovering, documenting and managing the requirements for a computer-based system. The goal of requirements engineering is to produce a set of system requirements which, as far as possible, is complete, consistent, relevant and reflects what the customer actually wants. Although this ideal is probably unattainable, the use of a systematic approach based on engineering principles leads to better requirements than the informal approach which is still commonly used.

This book presents a set of guidelines which reflect the best practice in requirements engineering. Based on the authors’ experience in research and in software and systems development, these guidelines explain in an easy-to-understand way how you can improve your requirements engineering processes.

The guidelines are applicable for any type of application and, in general, apply to both systems and software engineering. The guidelines here range from simple ‘common sense’ to those which propose the introduction of complex new methods. The guidelines and process improvement schemes have been organised so that you can pick and choose according to your problems, goals and available budget. There are few dependencies between guidelines so you can introduce them in any order in your organisation.

Guidelines presented in the book

  • are consistent with ISO 9000 and CMM
  • are ranked with cost/benefit analysis
  • give implementation advice
  • can be combined and applied to suit your organisation’s needs
  • are supported by a web page pointing to RE tools and resources

Book : System Requirements Analysis (1993)

System Requirements Analysis

Categories: Requirements

Tags: bookprocessrequirement

Publisher:McGraw Hill

Author(s):Grady, Jeffrey O.

Published: 1993 • ISBN: 0070239940 • 498 pages • Delivery Format: Hard Copy - Hardback

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

Summary

A comprehensive, practical approach to understanding System Requirements Analysis (SRA), a process that allows engineers to define the requirements for a system as efficiently and quickly as possible - and with careful attention to quality. The author covers the fundamental applications of the process, and also explores in depth SRA methods for the system engineer interested in applying the entire process to a new project. The methods discussed here have been used successfully in aerospace engineering, but are broadly applicable to any system development project, regardless of size.

The book also shows software engineers how to define their “customer requirements” in order to take advantage of the many good computer-aided software engineering tools and methodologies currently available.

Book : Writing Better Requirements (2002)

Writing Better Requirements

Publisher:Addison-Wesley

Author(s):Alexander, Ian F.Stevens, Richard

Published: 2002 • ISBN: 0321131630 • 176 pages

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

Summary

From the publisher:

Well-written requirements are crucial to systems of all kinds: you are unlikely to get what you want unless you ask for it. This book explains and demonstrates exactly what requirements are for, and how to write them.
