Book : Systems Engineering for Commercial Aircraft (1997)

Systems Engineering for Commercial Aircraft

Publisher:Ashgate

Author(s):Jackson, Scott

Published: 1997 • ISBN: 0291398464 • 208 pages • Delivery Format: Hard Copy - Hardback

Summary

From the publisher:

The key principle of systems engineering, a process now becoming widely applied in the commercial aircraft industry, is that an aircraft should be considered as a whole and not as a collection of parts. Another principle is that the requirements for the aircraft and its subsystems emanate from a logical set of organized functions and from economic or customer-oriented requirements as well as the regulatory requirements for certification. The resulting process promises to synthesize and validate the design of aircraft which are higher in quality, better meet customer requirements and are most economical to operate.

This book aims to provide the reader with the information to apply the systems engineering process to the design of new aircraft, derivative aircraft and to change–based designs. The principles of this book are applicable to passenger and cargo carrying aircraft and to commuter and business aircraft. It explains the principles of systems engineering in understandable terms, but does not attempt to educate the reader in the details of the process.

Incorporating the latest thinking by FAA and JAA to utilize the systems engineering in the aircraft certification process, the author shows how current guidelines for certification of systems with software are in agreement with its main principles. These in turn can be applied at three levels: the aviation system, the aircraft as a whole and the aircraft subsystem levels.

By providing guidelines for managing a commercial aircraft development using the principles of systems engineering, the book will enable engineers and managers to see the work they do in a new light. Whether developing a new aircraft from scratch or simply modifying a subsystem, they will be assisted to see their product from a functional point of view and thus to develop new vehicles which are better, cheaper and safer than before.

The readership includes the aircraft industry, suppliers and regulatory communities: especially technical, program and procurement managers; systems, design and specialty engineers (human factors, reliability, safety, etc); students of aeronautical and systems engineering and technical management; and government agencies such as FAA and JAA.

Course : Systems Engineering MEng/BEng (2010)

Systems Engineering MEng/BEng

Publisher:Loughborough University

Author(s):—Unknown—

Published: 2010 • Delivery Format: Unknown

Summary

From Loughborough University:

Systems Engineering provides a structured comprehensive approach to solving today’s complex technical challenges, particularly those related to the design and development of highly sophisticated products, such as aircraft, ships, telecommunications networks, or information management systems.

It is the systems engineer’s job to integrate people, processes, tools and technologies effectively and successfully in any system to produce a required capability and performance. Systems Engineering is about the bigger picture: it provides insight into the context in which design objectives are set and enables appropriate integrated solutions to be developed and implemented as operational products or services. No matter what the system of interest, a systems engineer looks at the whole product lifecycle and all the stakeholders’ needs as well as aiming to satisfy the customer.

The course contains material drawn from the following academic departments, together with contributions from industrial organisations:

  • Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering
  • Business School
  • Computer Science
  • Electronic and Electrical Engineering
  • Ergonomics
  • Materials Engineering
  • Politics, History and International Relations
  • Mathematical Sciences
  • Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering
  • Civil and Building Engineering

Published: 1998 • ISBN: 0130950858 • 384 pages • Delivery Format: Hard Copy - Paperback

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

Summary

From the publisher:

In an age of shrinking development cycles, it is harder than ever to bring the right product to the market at the right time. Good product - especially complex products - are underpinned by good systems, and systems engineering itself is recognized as the key tool of product development.

This book covers the principles of systems engineering in an easy-to-read format.

The authors have decades of practical industrial experience, and the material is ideal for industrial project teams. For academic courses, the book acts as a component for graduate and undergraduate engineering studies, particularly those on systems engineering.

It covers how to handle requirements, architectural design, integration and verification, starting from the perspective of a simple linear lifecycle. The book then gradually introduces recent work on the complexity of real-world systems, with issues such as multi-level systems development, software within systems, and iterative development. There is also coverage of the impact of systems engineering at the organizational level.

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

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

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

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

Other Versions: 2004

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.
