This book provides systems engineers and analysts with the concepts, methodologies, models and tools needed to understand and implement the systems approach.* NEW - Updates coverage throughout to reflect the most current practices in the field. * NEW - Features new or expanded coverage of many topics, including...* Design for producibility, disposability, and affordability. * Quality Function Deployment (QFD). * Failure Mode, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA). * Fault-Tree Analysis (FTA). * Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM). * Operator Task Analysis (OTA). * Total productive maintenance. * Technical Performance Measures (TPMs). * Functional analysis and requirements allocation. * Design Dependent Parameters (DDPs). * Top-down, integrated, life-cycle perspective addresses overall product life-cycle. Evolves from identification of a consumer need to design and development, production/construction, distribution, system utilization and support, retirement and material recycling and/or disposal. * Emphasizes the systems engineering process with a step-by-step approach. * Covers the integration of a number of design disciplines essential to the implementation of systems engineering, such as: * Reliability. * Maintainability. * Human factors. * Supportability. * Producibility. * Disposability. * Affordability. * Emphasizes the application of theoretical constructs, providing examples, case studies, problems and exercises based on real-world industrial experience. * Includes analytical tools that aid students in converting theory to application and practitioners in solving on-the-job problems. * Integrates a wealth of case studies, over 300 figures, numerous tables, and over 430 end-of-chapter questions and exercises.

For senior-level undergraduate and first and second year graduate systems engineering and related courses. Systems Engineering and Analysis, 5/e, provides a total life-cycle approach to systems and their analysis.
This practical introduction to systems engineering and analysis provides the concepts, methodologies, models, and tools needed to understand and implement a total life-cycle approach to systems and their analysis. The authors focus first on the process of bringing systems into being—beginning with the identification of a need and extending that need through requirements determination, functional analysis and allocation, design synthesis, evaluation, and validation, operation and support, phase-out, and disposal. Next, the authors discuss the improvement of systems currently in being, showing that by employing the iterative process of analysis, evaluation, feedback, and modification, most systems in existence can be improved in their affordability, effectiveness, and stakeholder satisfaction.Review:
“This text is the most complete, most thorough, and the most systematic textbook on the subject of Systems Engineering. The textbook is presenting materials in a proper and sequential manner and it is not jumping from topic to topic.”
-Lili H. Tabrizi, CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY
“This is, without a doubt, the definitive text on systems engineering. It provides a comprehensive coverage of the field, considering both the design and analysis of complex systems.”
-Stanley F. Bullington, MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY
“The clean coverage of individual topics makes it easier to address needs of students both in our regular graduate course and to supplement short courses. The book serves as an excellent quick reference guide.”
-Paul Componation, THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA IN HUNTSVILLE
