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.
What people are saying - Write a review
Having read this book, i feel the writer knew what they were doing.
The writing structure is so clear and very well understandable.
The concepts are also very well elaborated and the fact that am not an engineer but i could follow what was written means the writer did their job. Just so you know, I only choose a four star just because its not possible to give one the full of everything as they may never work towards giving another product. Otherwise, i really liked what i saw in this book. Keep it up
