This comprehensive resource shows how to incorporate systems thinking & systems engineering techniques into every stage of the design process from concept inception, testing, & quality assurance, to implementation, delivery, & upgrading
As high-tech engineering organizations learn to do more with less, they are relying more and more on the efforts of individual designers and small design teams. Combined with this trend is the growing popularity of systems engineering techniques to tackle ever increasing complex system designs. This book empowers small teams with systems engineering techniques that once were the exclusive domain of large organizations employing hundreds of engineers to develop complex, tightly integrated systems designs. This timely resource explains how engineers leading a small design team can use systems thinking to manage and optimize design and development, as well as how to become effective leaders of a small team.
Text offers an introduction to the utilization of systems engineering for managing systems design projects in any organization. DLC: Engineering design--Management.
