Description

Product Description

The first edition of this unique interdisciplinary guide has become the foundational systems engineering textbook for colleges and universities worldwide. It has helped countless readers learn to think like systems engineers, giving them the knowledge, skills, and leadership qualities they need to be successful professionals. Now, colleagues of the original authors have upgraded and expanded the book to address the significant advances in this rapidly changing field.

An outgrowth of the Johns Hopkins University Master of Science Program in Engineering, Systems Engineering: Principles and Practice provides an educationally sound, entry-level approach to the subject, describing tools and techniques essential for the development of complex systems. Exhaustively classroom tested, the text continues the tradition of utilizing models to assist in grasping abstract concepts, emphasizing application and practice. This Second Edition features:

  • Expanded topics on advanced systems engineering concepts beyond the traditional systems engineering areas and the post-development stage

  • Updated DOD and commercial standards, architectures, and processes

  • New models and frameworks for traditional structured analysis and object-oriented analysis techniques

  • Improved discussions on requirements, systems management, functional analysis, analysis of alternatives, decision making and support, and operational analysis

  • Supplemental material on the concept of the system boundary

  • Modern software engineering techniques, principles, and concepts

  • Further exploration of the system engineer''s career to guide prospective professionals

  • Updated problems and references

The Second Edition continues to serve as a graduate-level textbook for courses introducing the field and practice of systems engineering. This very readable book is also an excellent resource for engineers, scientists, and project managers involved with systems engineering, as well as a useful textbook for short courses offered through industry seminars.

Review

"Aimed at advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, this textbook is intended as an introduction to the developmetn and acquisition of complex technical systems ... The second edition is intended to offer expansion, integration and clarification to maintain relevance and currency." (Times Higher Education Supplement {Texbook Guide}, 3 November 2011)

"The book is very readable and gives a particularly good grounding in the subject of systems engineering. It is therefore a valuable volume for any electronics engineering student, practising engineer, or as a reference for a company designing any form of equipment needing a systems engineering approach." (Radio-electronics.com, 1 October 2011)

First off, I am a professor and teach systems engineering. I bought/acquired both a hard copy and a soft Kindle copy of this text book and made it the required text for my course. I bought the Kindle version so I could cut and paste items into briefing slides for use in class presentation materials. When I got half way through the text, I got a notice that I exceeded the copy limit the publisher had set up. If you want to cut and paste material out of the text, don''t buy a Kindle version of it since you will be prohibited from doing so.

The first half to the text is cumbersome. The author defines his own unique phases for his own unique life cycle model and breaks out the conceptual design phase into 3 phases and grudgingly goes through all the typical system engineering tasks in each phase. The result is he doesn''t release a top-level requirements spec until the last page of chapter 8. Once you get through the first eight chapters, the layout improves and there is some pretty good content in the second half of the book. Throughout the entire book, however, there are relatively few figures or illustrations, and the ones that are presented are fairly basic.

Overall, this text doesn''t measure up to the system engineering works offered by Blanchard, or by Eisner''s book on Project and Systems Engineering Management. Both Blanchard and Eisner write much more persuasively, and they both fill their works with worthwhile figures that help illustrate system engineering topics. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.

After working 33 years as a mechanical engineer with a masters degree doing system design and feedback control including algorithm and embedded software, I find this book is an excellent reference. The selection of words to describe the critical perspective in systems engineering practice is similar to my own. I had been tasked after 10 years as a level V systems engineer to write a chapter on System Design Analysis for a large defense contractor as a new addition to their decades old Systems Engineering Process Manual. This book does a better job in partitioning the system life cycle to enumerate all critical stumbling blocks which cost many engineering departments significant losses. This is an excellent reference. I would not find the material comprehensible if I did not already have a significant career involvement in developing complex systems for DoD. This is a graduate level topic. The author makes clear that systems engineering practice is not a software task, and that the new systems engineer delivering complex systems should come from a traditional engineering discipline with a masters degree. I have that perspective and did not start as a systems engineer until I had 20 years employed as both a mechanical design engineer (12 yrs.) and software analyst (8 yrs.).

I am using this for a class I am taking on Systems Engineering so I have read it pretty much cover to cover. Frankly, I have never given such a low score on a book before. It is poorly written, poorly organized, not enough diagrams and not enough examples. I find that there are times I have to read and reread a section to make sure I understand the point of the paragraph.

The book will discuss a topic in several different places so the reader has to bounce around over five different spots to get the total information shared about it. The book discusses many complex and abstract topics and doesn''t give a concrete example in many instances.

The information in the book is very good hence 2 stars.

As an experienced systems engineer, I thought that this book was pretty basic. It also suffers from the problems that most systems engineering books suffer from. It primarily deals with the development phase and glosses over the activities after that, namely manufacturing, support, and disposal. While I think it might be useful for an introductory course in systems engineering, it doesn''t do much for the experienced professional. I feel sorry for students and/or their parents. The authors prices it like a textbook: way out of proportion to what it''s worth.

It also has errors that makes you wonder about the authors. For example, it refers to a Boeing 797 Dreamliner. In another case, it gives examples of parameters and then when the authors work out the problem, the parameter values have changed.

It''s not a bad book. It is just pretty rudimentary, with a little sloppiness thrown in.

This book covers the fairly generic systems engineering process. It is dry at times, gets off on tangents here and there, and seems inapplicable. HOWEVER, I''ve found myself as a de facto systems engineer before, and I''ve worked projects the right way and the wrong way, and I can assure you the right way is more predictable, methodical, and better. This book will teach you what the right way is, and if you stick to the basic steps (worked for situational reasonability of course), this can put you on the right track. This book is not exciting, it is more managerial than anything. But then, engineering can''t be all fancy toys and electricity, sometimes you have to write stuff down.

No real technical background is required.

This was the required book for my SE master''s intro class. It is medium size and not too big to carry around. A couple chapters are fairly long but they average about 20 pages each. A bit boring to read at times but most engineers should find it interesting. The illustrations and tables help. Not very well edited as I have found at least one spelling error per chapter. Organization within each chapter is not as I would expect... while answering problems at the end of the chapter I flip back to the prior pages and have trouble finding where the question came from. The problems should help reinforce what you just read and get you thinking... not waste time because the question wasn''t worded well. It is still overall a good book, just has its problems.
