The ideal introduction to the engineering design of systems—now in a new edition

The Engineering Design of Systems, Second Edition compiles a wealth of information from diverse sources to provide a unique, one-stop reference to current methods for systems engineering. It takes a model-based approach to key systems engineering design activities and introduces methods and models used in the real world. Features new to this edition include:

The addition of Systems Modeling Language (SysML) to several of the chapters, as well as the introduction of new terminology

Additional material on partitioning functions and components

More descriptive material on usage scenarios based on literature from use case development

Updated homework assignments

The software product CORE (from Vitech Corporation) is used to generate the traditional SE figures and the software product MagicDraw UML with SysML plugins (from No Magic, Inc.) is used for the SysML figures

This book is designed to be an introductory reference and textbook for professionals and students in systems engineering. It is also useful in related courses in engineering programs that emphasize design methods and models.
