Technology/Engineering/General A top-down, step-by-step, life-cycle approach to systems engineering In today's environment, there is an ever-increasing need to develop and produce systems that are robust, reliable, high quality, supportable, cost-effective, and responsive to the needs of the customer or user. Reflecting these worldwide trends, System Engineering Management, Fourth Edition introduces readers to the full range of system engineering concepts, tools, and techniques, emphasizing the application of principles and concepts of system engineering and the way these principles aid in the development, utilization, and support of systems. Viewing systems engineering from both a technical and a management perspective, this fully revised and updated edition extends its coverage to include: * The changing areas of system requirements * Increasing system complexities * Extended system life cycles versus shorter technology cycles * Higher costs and greater international competition * The interrelationship of project management and systems engineering as they work together at the project team level Supported by numerous, real-life case studies, this new edition of the classic resource demonstrates-step by step-a comprehensive, top-down, life-cycle approach that system engineers can follow to reduce costs, streamline the design and development process, improve reliability, and win customers.

The trusted handbook—now in a new edition This newly revised handbook presents a multifaceted view of systems engineering from process and systems management perspectives. It begins with a comprehensive introduction to the subject and provides a brief overview of the thirty-four chapters that follow. This introductory chapter is intended to serve as a "field guide" that indicates why, when, and how to use the material that follows in the handbook. Topical coverage includes: systems engineering life cycles and management; risk management; discovering system requirements; configuration management; cost management; total quality management; reliability, maintainability, and availability; concurrent engineering; standards in systems engineering; system architectures; systems design; systems integration; systematic measurements; human supervisory control; managing organizational and individual decision-making; systems reengineering; project planning; human systems integration; information technology and knowledge management; and more. The handbook is written and edited for systems engineers in industry and government, and to serve as a university reference handbook in systems engineering and management courses. By focusing on systems engineering processes and systems management, the editors have produced a long-lasting handbook that will make a difference in the design of systems of all types that are large in scale and/or scope.

The Third Edition of Essentials of Project and SystemsEngineering Management enables readers to manage the design,development, and engineering of systems effectively andefficiently. The book both defines and describes the essentials ofproject and systems engineering management and, moreover, shows thecritical relationship and interconnection between projectmanagement and systems engineering. The author's comprehensivepresentation has proven successful in enabling both engineers andproject managers to understand their roles, collaborate, andquickly grasp and apply all the basic principles. Readers familiar with the previous two critically acclaimededitions will find much new material in this latest edition,including: Multiple views of and approaches to architectures The systems engineer and software engineering The acquisition of systems Problems with systems, software, and requirements Group processes and decision making System complexity and integration Throughout the presentation, clear examples help readers understandhow concepts have been put into practice in real-worldsituations. With its unique integration of project management and systemsengineering, this book helps both engineers and project managersacross a broad range of industries successfully develop and managea project team that, in turn, builds successful systems. Forengineering and management students in such disciplines astechnology management, systems engineering, and industrialengineering, the book provides excellent preparation for movingfrom the classroom to industry.

This comprehensive textbook provides a logical process for fact-based decision making for the most challenging systems problems. It is composed of three bedrock elements to improve readers' understanding and analysis of the most challenging systems problems that exist today: systems thinking, which identifies important interconnections between a system and its environment; systems engineering, which describes the activities of professional systems engineers; and systems decision making, which provides fact-based information to support major system decisions made at every life cycle stage.

Decision Making in Systems Engineering and Management is a comprehensive textbook that provides a logical process and analytical techniques for fact-based decision making for the most challenging systems problems. Grounded in systems thinking and based on sound systems engineering principles, the systems decisions process (SDP) leverages multiple objective decision analysis, multiple attribute value theory, and value-focused thinking to define the problem, measure stakeholder value, design creative solutions, explore the decision trade off space in the presence of uncertainty, and structure successful solution implementation. In addition to classical systems engineering problems, this approach has been successfully applied to a wide range of challenges including personnel recruiting, retention, and management; strategic policy analysis; facilities design and management; resource allocation; information assurance; security systems design; and other settings whose structure can be conceptualized as a system.

This book conceives, presents and exemplifies a contemporary, general systems methodology that is straightforward and accessible, providing guidance in practical application, as well as explaining concept and theory. The book is presented both as a text for students, with topic assignments, and as a reference for practitioners, through case studies. Utilizing recent research and developments in systems science, methods and tools, Hitchins has developed a unified systems methodology, employable when tackling virtually any problem, from the small technological, to the global socioeconomic. Founded in the powerful ‘systems approach’, Hitchins’ systems methodology brings together both soft and hard system scientific methods into one methodological framework. This can be applied when addressing complex problems, issues and situations, and for creating robust, provable solutions, resolutions and dissolutions to those problems – supposing such to exist. This book details and explores: the systems approach, using theory and method to reveal systems engineering as applied systems science, bridging the gulf between Problem and Solution Spaces; a ‘universal’ Systems Methodology (including an extensive view of systems engineering, embracing both soft and hard systems) which encompasses all five stages of Hitchins’ 5-layer Systems Engineering Model (artifact, project, enterprise, industry and socio-economy); case studies illustrating how the systems methodology may be used to address a diverse range of situations and issues, including conceiving a new defense capability, proposing a feasible way to tackle global warming, tackling enterprise interventions, how and why things can go wrong, and many more. Systems Engineering will give an immeasurable advantage to managers, practitioners and consultants in a wide range of organizations and fields including police, defense, procurement, communications, transport, management, electrical, electronic, aerospace, requirements, software and computer engineering. It is an essential reference for researchers seeking ‘systems enlightenment’, including graduate students who require a comprehensive reference text on the subject, and also government departments and systems engineering institutions
