As such, the science relates to all fields of engineering. While systems engineering has always played an important role in industrial and military applications, advances in communications and computer technology have made this discipline especially relevant. This book introduces design methods and models used by systems engineers in the real world. It offer a comprehensive, integrated treatment that includes modeling, underlying design principles, and the process of optimization for peak performance.Hide synopsis
Description:New. This book is designed as an introductory reference...New. This book is designed as an introductory reference/textbook for professionals and undergraduates and graduates in systems engineering. It is also useful in related courses in other engineering programs that emphasize design methods and models. The book adopts the philosophy that performing systems engineering activities involves modeling of many different types. To learn modeling, students must model. A number of generally understood systems are used to convey these modeling concepts and test the students` ability to create realistic models. Contents: -Part I Introduction, Overview, And Basic Knowledge 1. Introduction to Systems Engineering 2. Overview of the Systems Engineering Design Process 3. Modeling and Process Modeling 4. Discrete Mathematics: Sets, Relations and Functions 5. Graphs and Directed Graphs (Digraphs) Part II Design And Integration Topics 6. Requirements and Defining the Design Problem 7. Functional Architecture Development 8. Physical Architecture Development 9. Operational Architecture Development 10. Interface Design 11. Integration and Qualification Part III Supplemental Topics 12. Graphical Modeling Techniques 13. Decision Analysis for Design Trades Appendices Glossary References Printed Pages: 484..
