Synopsis

As its name implies, the aim of Systems Design and Engineering: Facilitating Multidisciplinary Development Projects is to help systems engineers develop the skills and thought processes needed to successfully develop and implement engineered systems. Such expertise typically does not come through study but from action, hard work, and cooperation. To that end, the authors have chosen a "hands-on" approach for presenting material rather than concentrating on theory, as so often is the case in a classroom setting. This attractive and accessible text is a mix of theory and practical approach, illustrated with examples that have enough richness and variability to hold your attention. Models are presented for controlling the design, change, and engineering processes. Various aspects of systems engineering and methods providing the big picture at system level are discussed. In some ways, you can think of the book as a compact "starter's kit" for systems engineers. Although the authors are recognized experts in academic settings, they attribute much of their success in systems engineering to their own hands-on experiences and want to show you how to achieve that same level of expertise.

Simply reading this book or any other book will not suffice for the learning process to become a systems engineer - no book will do that. However, by following the principles laid out in this book, you can develop the necessary skills and expertise to help you start an interesting, challenging, and rewarding career as a systems engineer.

G. Maarten Bonnema is an associate professor in multidisciplinary systems design at the Department of Design, Production and Management of the Faculty of Engineering Technology at the University of Twente, and is a part-time associate professor at the Norwegian Institute of Systems Engineering (NISE) in Kongsberg, Norway. Karel Th. Veenvliet, a retired associate professor, advises companies on how to apply value engineering and systems engineering methods and tools. Jan F. Broenink is an associate professor of embedded control systems at the Robotics and Mechatronics group of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Twente.
