Systems Engineering for Complex Systems


Presentation Menu


Systems Engineering is a relatively new discipline of engineering, having only reached recognizable status within the last 25-30 years, and yet the discipline has become of extreme importance, especially in the world of today’s complex systems. It turns out that some industries have been performing “systems engineering” for years even though they did not call it that; product engineering, for example, in the automotive industry and commercial industries, embodies some of the important principles of systems engineering even though it is not always specified as such. Some of the significant principles of systems engineering are that it is multi-disciplined, considers the entire lifecycle of the product or system, and has as its major goal to strike a design balance between cost, schedule, and performance, and all within the reasonable risk.

This tutorial will delve into all the critical principles of systems engineering, and provide emphasis on the nuances of systems engineering that many of the new practitioners tend to overlook, such as safety, security, producibility, reliability, and similar.
