Engineering Design of Systems : Models and Methods (Hardcover) (Dennis M. Buede & William D. Miller)
About this item
The book is a basic text for courses in the engineering design of systems at both the upper undergraduate and beginning graduate levels. The book emphasizes the need todefine the design problem and to approach it systematically with specific techniques. The design problem is defined in terms ofrequirements, from a high-level set of mission and stakeholders' requirements to detailed sets of derived requirements. The design process will fail if requirements are defined too narrowly; requirements must be complete, consistent, correct, and attainable. The keys to understanding many of the modeling techniques for developing and deriving requirements may be found in discrete mathematics - set theory, relations and functions, and graph theory - which are covered in Chapters 4 and 5. Successful integration of requirements is modeled using an example system, the Automated Soda Machine, which is implemented throughout chapters 6 (Requirements and Defining the Design Problem) to 11 (Integration and Qualification). Graphical modeling techniques, new chapters on System Science and Analysis, Value of Systems Engineering, two appendices, and a glossary complete the text.
