This reference examines the engineering of both natural and human-made systems and the analysis of those systems. For the engineering of systems, the authors emphasize the process of bringing systems into being. Regarding analysis, they explore the improvement of systems already in existence.

Includes a wealth of new and revised figures throughout. Features significant revisions and new material on Bringing Systems Into Being (Ch. 2); Conceptual Design (Ch. 3); Design For Supportability (Ch. 15); Design For Affordability - Life-Cycle Costing (Ch. 17). Adds material on the integration of design disciplines in the systems engineering. Concludes each chapter with new Summary Extensions. Provides a new supplier evaluation checklist. Includes a new appendix that lists 35 key related web sites.

A useful reference for electrical, electronic, and automotive engineers, as well as professionals in the aeronautics, astronautics, and manufacturing industries.

Editorial Reviews

In dedicating this text to those graduating with interdisciplinary masters degrees in systems engineering from their school, Blanchard and Fabrycky (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and U.) signal a field encompassing domains such as: communications, healthcare, manufacturing, and transportation. Each entails the system design process: need identification, functional analysis, detail design and development, and system test/evaluation. Further analyses and models in decision-making are presented, as are systems engineering management particulars. Questions and answers conclude chapters. Includes design review checklists and statistical tables. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
A textbook for graduate or undergraduate level; also of possible interest to practicing engineers. Presents concepts and techniques for creating any type of large or small system, and for analyzing and existing man-made system. Guides the reader through the entire system life cycle. Appendices provide useful technical and statistical data. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
