About Systems Engineering
Systems Engineering is a transdisciplinary and integrative approach to successful realization and evolution of engineered systems based on systems principles and concepts, together with technological and management methods, enabling beneficial use of the system and subsequent retirement. The approach aims to capture stakeholder needs and objectives and to transform these into a holistic, life-cycle balanced system solution that both satisfies stakeholder thresholds of acceptability, and maximizes overall system effectiveness in accordance with the values of the stakeholders. The approach is proven to reduce costs, reduce development times and increase stakeholder satisfaction, regardless of the specific problem or opportunity being addressed, and regardless of the technologies of solution. As would be expected, the more complex the problem or solution, the more valuable systems engineering is. Systems engineering is widely embraced by leading technology-based organizations worldwide, is widely taught at Master’s level, and is increasingly appearing in undergraduate engineering degree programs worldwide..
