Lee Layton, PE
This course is divided into three volumes. Volume I describes the systems engineering process and includes an overview of system engineering and delves into requirements analysis, functional analysis, design synthesis, verification, and process outputs. Volume II explains the analysis and control functions of system engineering which includes work breakdown structures, configuration management, technical reviews, trade studies, modeling, metrics and risk management. Volume III discusses system engineering planning, organizing, integration, and contractual considerations for large projects.
This volume is a three hour course that introduces the reader to the systems engineering problem-solving process, and discusses in basic terms some traditional techniques used in the process. An overview is given, and then the process of requirements analysis, functional analysis and allocation, design synthesis, and verification is explained in some detail. This volume ends with a discussion of the documentation developed as the finished output of the systems engineering process.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
