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.
Description : A comprehensive and interdisciplinary guide to systems engineering Systems Engineering: Principles and Practice, 3rd Edition is the leading interdisciplinary reference for systems engineers. The up-to-date third edition provides readers with discussions of model-based systems engineering, requirements analysis, engineering design, and software design. Freshly updated governmental and commercial standards, architectures, and processes are covered in-depth. The book includes newly updated topics on: · Risk · Prototyping · Modeling and simulation · Software/computer systems engineering Examples and exercises appear throughout the text, allowing the reader to gauge their level of retention and learning. Systems Engineering: Principles and Practice was and remains the standard textbook used worldwide for the study of traditional systems engineering. The material is organized in a manner that allows for quick absorption of industry best practices and methods. Throughout the book, best practices and relevant alternatives are discussed and compared, encouraging the reader to think through various methods like a practicing systems engineer.
Description : This book is based on class notes for a course in the MS program in Systems Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The program was a cooperative effort between senior systems engineers from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and the Westinghouse Electric Company. The authors were part of the curriculum design team as well as members of the faculty.
Description : "Systems Engineering Principles and Practice is a national standard textbook for the study of traditional systems engineering for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. It addresses the need for an introductory overview, first-text for the development and acquisition of complex technical systems. The material is well organized, readable and fundamental to learning how to think like a systems engineer and carry out best practices in the field. Since systems engineering is still developing as a discipline, there have been new concepts and practices that have entered the field since the text was published in 2003. As an increasing number of students have used the text, topics have been discovered that would benefit from expansion, integration and clarification. The proposed second edition will be developed by colleagues of the original authors to upgrade this unique interdisciplinary guide to systems engineering to maintain relevance and currency in this rapidly changing and demanding field"--
Description : If you're new to systems engineering, or simply want to broaden your view of the field, here's an excellent resource that gives you a sound understanding of systems engineering principles and practical guidance in doing the job. You get a step-by-step approach to a systems engineering assignment and a thoroughly explained set of dimensions to a system that enables you to start new projects with speed and confidence. The book also identifies profitable interactions amongst systems engineers and development engineers, management, and customers.
Description : Prominent in industry and academia, a multinational panel presents insights and advice from the experience of practicing engineers. Examines the scope of systems engineering, its methodology and analyzes important issues including quality assurance and project management. Stresses areas where improvement is necessary in order to lead the way towards more efficient systems engineering practice.
Description : "This textbook is intended for business analysts, engineers, system developers, systems analysts, and others just getting started in management, and for managers and administrators with little project management training."--Jacket.
Description : Electrical and Electronic Engineering provides a foundation for first year undergraduates and HND students in electrical and electronic engineering. It offers exceptional breadth of coverage and detail in a clear and accessible manner. Suitable for specialists and non-specialists, it makes no excessive demands on the reader's mathematical skills. The basics of circuit theory and analysis are covered at the outset, followed by discrete devices and integrated circuits. Electrical machines, power electronics and digital logic circuits are treated thoroughly in a central group of chapters. Coverage of the essentials of computer architecture and networks is followed by a detailed chapter on microprocessors and microcontrollers. The importance of modern communications technology is reflected in the comprehensive group of chapters devoted to analogue, digital and optical fibre communications systems and telephony. Two concluding chapters deal with the important topic of electromagnetic compatibility and the basics of instrumentation and measurement that are essential for non-specialists. This fully revised third edition of this popular text uses a wealth of practical exercises and examples making it ideal as a teaching resource or a study tool.
