This volume combines the principles of systems engineering with those of architecting (the science and art of creating, designing, planning and certifying new structures) for a problem-solving approach to the design of large, complex projects.

It offers new conceptual models to engineers involved in the design of spacecraft, launch vehicles, aircraft and communication, computer or defence systems. With insights derived from real-world examples of major systems success and failures, this volume offers engineers the opportunity of saving time and money.

Highlights of the book include a detailed examination of the conceptual design phase, a heuristic approach to the teaching methods and a look at the various interrelated subjects of architecting.
