This handbook is consistent with ISO/IEC 15288: 2002(E) – Systems engineering – System life cycle processes (hereafter referred to as ISO/IEC 15288) to ensure its usefulness across a wide range of application domains – man-made systems and products, as well as business and services. ISO/IEC 15288 is an international standard that is a generic process description, whereas this handbook further elaborates the processes and activities to execute the processes. Before applying this handbook in a given organization or project, it is recommended that the tailoring guidelines in Chapter 10 be used to remove conflicts with existing policies, procedures and standards already in use. Processes and activities in this handbook do not supercede any international, national, or local laws or regulations. For organizations including much of commercial industry that does not follow the principles of ISO/IEC 15288 to specify their life-cycle processes, this handbook can serve as a reference to practices and methods which have proven beneficial to the systems engineering community at large and which can add significant value in new domains if appropriately selected and applied. Material to support the application of processes and activities described in this handbook is available to INCOSE members through the INCOSE Process Asset Library (IPAL). The IPAL is currently under development and ultimately will contain additional supporting text, tailoring guidance and implementation material (such as checklists and work product templates from a number of application domains) for each handbook chapter. The handbook and IPAL are intended to be used together. 1.3 Contents This chapter defines the purpose and scope of this handbook. Chapter 2 provides an overview of the goals and value of using systems engineering throughout the systems life cycle. Chapter 3 describes an informative life cycle model with six stages: Concept, Development, Production, Utilization, Support, and Retirement. ISO/IEC 15288 identifies four process groups to support systems engineering. Each of these process groups is the subject of a chapter. A graphical overview of these processes is given in Figure 1-1.

Systems Engineering for Microscale and Nanoscale Technologies

Author: M. Ann Garrison Darrin
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781439837351
Release Date: 2016-04-19
Genre: Technology & Engineering

To realize the full potential of micro- and nanoscale devices in system building, it is critical to develop systems engineering methodologies that successfully integrate stand-alone, small-scale technologies that can effectively interface with the macro world. So how do we accomplish this? Systems Engineering for Microscale and Nanoscale Technologies is perhaps the first handbook to concentrate on the use of systems engineering at the micro and nano levels. One major roadblock to this process is a generally limited understanding of exactly how to apply systems engineering principles and management processes to the integration of newer, small-scale technologies. Focusing on this problem of consolidating disciplines, contributors illustrate the interdependence between nanotechnology and systems engineering, making it easier for experts from these two distinct fields to understand and optimize their application of the other. To help readers from these different domains successfully combine heterogeneous, mixed-scale elements, contributors assess the evolution of micro- and nanoscale technology development and its impact on everything from laboratory concepts to actualized products in health, automotive, aerospace, communication, and many other fields. The book outlines new approaches to developing smart systems. It also clarifies the capabilities of micro- and nanotechnologies, including how they interface with each other and with macro systems. Edited by highly regarded technologists, this introductory resource includes insightful contributions from leading minds in areas including nanotechnology, physics, systems engineering, materials science, chemistry, electrical engineering, and futurism, among others. The result is a masterfully designed, interrelated collection of multidisciplinary expertise to help readers optimize future technologies. About the Editors: M. Ann Garrison Darrin is managing executive of the Space Department at the Applied Physics Laboratory at The Johns Hopkins University. Janet L. Barth is chief of the Electrical Engineering Division (EED) at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC).

Requirements Management

Author: Dr Mario Kossmann
Publisher: Gower Publishing, Ltd.
ISBN: 9781409471417
Release Date: 2013-05-28
Genre: Business & Economics

Poor requirements management is one of the top five contributors to poor project performance. In extreme, safety critical or emergency-relief situations, failure to satisfy the real needs of the project stakeholders may well lead directly to loss of life or human suffering; other, more mundane, projects can also be severely compromised. Dr Mario Kossmann’s Requirements Management looks at the process from the perspectives of both Program and Project Management and Systems Engineering, showing the crucial role of RM in both contexts. The author puts great emphasis on the human aspects of any project, which is also significant given that over-emphasis on technical or technological aspects at the expense of the human side is another major source of project shortfalls. The book offers illustrated examples of systems of different levels of complexity (one simple system, one complex, and one highly complex system) to help you categorize your own system and enable you to select the right level of formality, a suitable organization and a set of techniques and tools to carry out your requirements work. It includes a series of comprehensive checklists which can be used immediately to improve urgent requirements aspects. This is a practical and realistic guide to requirements management that provides a flexible, hands-on and innovative approach to developing and managing program, project and system requirements at different levels of complexity; read it and use the advice offered to ensure your projects can actually deliver, first time, without the need for costly and time-consuming rework.
