This course provides a basic, conceptual-level description of engineering management disciplines that relate to the development and life cycle management of a system. For the non-engineer it provides an overview of how a system is developed. For the engineer and project manager it provides a basic framework for planning and assessing system development. The course is divided into four parts: Introduction; Systems Engineering Process; Systems Analysis and Control, Planning, Organizing, and Managing.
This course was to summarize the primary activities and issues associated with the conduct and management of technical activities on DOD (Department of Defense) programs and projects. It was written to supplement the material presented courses at the Defense Systems Management College. The disciplined application of the principles associated with systems engineering has been recognized as one indicator of likely success in complex programs. As always, however, the key is for the practitioner to be able to absorb these fundamental principles and then to tailor them to the specific circumstances confronted.
