"This book is about systems. It concentrates on the engineering of human-made systems and on systems analysis. In the first case, emphasis is on the process of bringing systems into being, beginning with the identification of a need and extending through requirements determination, functional analysis and allocation, design synthesis and evaluation, validation, operation and support, and disposal. In the second case, focus is on the improvement of systems already in being. By employing the iterative process of analysis, evaluation, modification, and feedback most systems now in existence can be improved in their effectiveness, product quality, affordability, and stakeholder satisfaction."--BOOK JACKET.
