From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
Systems engineers must master a very diverse skill set in order to coordinate the complexities of developing a system capable of achieving a goal. There are user requirements to consider, as well as budget constraints, professional skill levels, technological capacities, and so much more. To achieve success as a system engineer, you must know the component parts and achieve the synergy of combining these parts into the whole.
This book consists of 14 chapters and five parts. The book provides an in-depth view of what one must know to successfully function as an engineer; and that is not surprising, considering the credentials and experience levels of the authors. The volume covers such areas as requirements analysis, work breakdown structures, prototyping, development, integration, testing, and installation. Each chapter also contains a summary, homework problems, and a bibliography. A glossary of important terms is also included. The chapter summaries are formatted to facilitate their use in lecture viewgraphs, making this book very usable in the classroom. John Vacca
