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
