Overview

The Third Edition of Essentials of Project and Systems Engineering Management enables readers to manage the design, development, and engineering of systems effectively and efficiently. The book both defines and describes the essentials of project and systems engineering management and, moreover, shows the critical relationship and interconnection between project management and systems engineering. The author's comprehensive presentation has proven successful in enabling both engineers and project managers to understand their roles, collaborate, and quickly grasp and apply all the basic principles.
Readers familiar with the previous two critically acclaimed editions will find much new material in this latest edition, including:

  • Multiple views of and approaches to architectures
  • The systems engineer and software engineering
  • The acquisition of systems
  • Problems with systems, software, and requirements
  • Group processes and decision making
  • System complexity and integration
Throughout the presentation, clear examples help readers understand how concepts have been put into practice in real-world situations.

With its unique integration of project management and systems engineering, this book helps both engineers and project managers across a broad range of industries successfully develop and manage a project team that, in turn, builds successful systems. For engineering and management students in such disciplines as technology management, systems engineering, and industrial engineering, the book provides excellent preparation for moving from the classroom to industry.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for a 15-week graduate course, and a reference and tutorial for practicing systems engineers and project managers. Defines and describes the essentials of project and systems engineering management, and shows the relationship between project management and systems engineering. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
"Most large-scale systems deal with military, aerospace, or telecommunications activity. Examples are the space shuttle and air traffic control. This well-written text therefore devotes much of its content and one-third of its bibliography, to such subjects. ; Dealing with difficult people, such as team busters, or the bad boss, confronts most of us at some time. Motivation? Incentives? How to treat employees fairly and earn loyalty? It's all here." (Electrical Apparatus, April 2002)
