Editorial Reviews

This title would be especially useful for special libraries, and it would be relevant for academic libraries that support strong engineering programs.
This title would be especially useful for special libraries, and it would be relevant for academic libraries that support strong engineering programs.
This handbook takes a multifaceted view and describes systems engineering in terms of a relatively large number of dimensions. It discusses methods and tools<-->as well as a variety of specific products<-->from an engineering perspective, with a focus upon systems that are information-technology and knowledge intensive. Covering includes traditional systems analysis, theory, and operations research concerns in the broader context of engineering and management processes. Annotation c.
