Summary

This reference examines theengineeringof both natural and human-made systems and theanalysisof those systems. For the engineering of systems, the authors emphasize the process of bringing systems into being. Regarding analysis, they explore the improvement of systems already in existence.Includes a wealth of new and revised figures throughout. Features significant revisions and new material on Bringing Systems Into Being (Ch. 2); Conceptual Design (Ch. 3); Design For Supportability (Ch. 15); Design For Affordability - Life-Cycle Costing (Ch. 17). Adds material on the integration of design disciplines in the systems engineering. Concludes each chapter with new Summary Extensions. Provides a new supplier evaluation checklist. Includes a new appendix that lists 35 key related web sites.A useful reference for electrical, electronic, and automotive engineers, as well as professionals in the aeronautics, astronautics, and manufacturing industries.
