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.

This book concentrates too much on how the government,DOD and NASA handle projects. It provides little or no insight into private industry or how new technologies or ways of doing business have affected program management. This textbook only covers on the surface subjects that should be discussed in more detail for a graduate textbook on program management. At times the book is more a history book than a systems engineering/program management book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
