Book Description :

Agile Systems Engineering presents a vision of systems engineering where precise specification of requirements, structure, and behavior meet larger concerns as such as safety, security, reliability, and performance in an agile engineering context. World-renown author and speaker Dr. Bruce Powel Douglass incorporates agile methods and model-based systems engineering (MBSE) to define the properties of entire systems while avoiding errors that can occur when using traditional textual specifications. Dr. Douglass covers the lifecycle of systems development, including requirements, analysis, design, and the handoff to specific engineering disciplines. Throughout, Dr. Douglass couples agile methods with SysML and MBSE to arm system engineers with the conceptual and methodological tools they need to avoid specification defects and improve system quality while simultaneously reducing the effort and cost of systems engineering. Identifies how the concepts and techniques of agile methods can be effectively applied in systems engineering context Shows how to perform model-based functional analysis and tie these analyses back to system requirements and stakeholder needs, and forward to system architecture and interface definition Provides a means by which the quality and correctness of systems engineering data can be assured (before the entire system is built!) Explains agile system architectural specification and allocation of functionality to system components Details how to transition engineering specification data to downstream engineers with no loss of fidelity Includes detailed examples from across industries taken through their stages, including the "Waldo" industrial exoskeleton as a complex system

Book Description :

Systems engineering and the concepts it employs enables projects to be executed on-time, on-budget, and within scope. However, the processes and methods covered by systems engineering are typically not followed as prescribed. This overburdens leaner organizations with processes that cannot be built into a project's labor estimate. Organizations utilize many of the concepts in systems engineering but often in an incorrect or incomplete manner. Academia often creates new processes and methods that are theoretically viable but difficult to implement due to lack of resources or understanding. Leaner organizations are facing challenges that warrant systems engineering but require an emphasis on more simplistic development approaches.To reduce the issues uncovered during the use of the "Vee" model and to create a more agile approach for leaner organizations, more flexible, relatable, and understandable processes and techniques are required. The Snap-in Systems Engineering method, introduced herein, is a methodology that follows the systems engineering "Vee" but focuses on an agile approach to architecting with an emphasis on practical knowledge and ease of project application. The method allows flexibility by empowering a team to implement a design strategy based upon the type of project being undertaken. Each snap-in option minimizes systems engineering knowledge yet emphasizes measurable results.The Snap-in Systems Engineering or SISE method (pronounced "cease") for lean organizations will be introduced herein, a review of the SISE method will be provided, and a real-world case study of its use will be explored. The goal of the explanations and examples provided are to highlight the benefits of time-savings, cost-savings, positive project outcome and to provide small organizations engineering tools for projects of a certain complexity. "SISE is systems engineering for the rest of us."

Book Description :

This translation brings a landmark systems engineering (SE) book to English-speaking audiences for the first time since its original publication in 1972. For decades the SE concept championed by this book has helped engineers solve a wide variety of issues by emphasizing a top-down approach. Moving from the general to the specific, this SE concept has situated itself as uniquely appealing to both highly trained experts and anybody managing a complex project. Until now, this SE concept has only been available to German speakers. By shedding the overtly technical approach adopted by many other SE methods, this book can be used as a problem-solving guide in a great variety of disciplines, engineering and otherwise. By segmenting the book into separate parts that build upon each other, the SE concept’s accessibility is reinforced. The basic principles of SE, problem solving, and systems design are helpfully introduced in the first three parts. Once the fundamentals are presented, specific case studies are covered in the fourth part to display potential applications. Then part five offers further suggestions on how to effectively practice SE principles; for example, it not only points out frequent stumbling blocks, but also the specific points at which they may appear. In the final part, a wealth of different methods and tools, such as optimization techniques, are given to help maximize the potential use of this SE concept. Engineers and engineering students from all disciplines will find this book extremely helpful in solving complex problems. Because of its practicable lessons in problem-solving, any professional facing a complex project will also find much to learn from this volume.

Book Description :

To be effective, data-intensive systems require extensive ongoing customisation to reflect changing user requirements, organisational policies, and the structure and interpretation of the data they hold. Manual customisation is expensive, time-consuming, and error-prone. In large complex systems, the value of the data can be such that exhaustive testing is necessary before any new feature can be added to the existing design. In most cases, the precise details of requirements, policies and data will change during the lifetime of the system, forcing a choice between expensive modification and continued operation with an inefficient design. Engineering Agile Big-Data Systems outlines an approach to dealing with these problems in software and data engineering, describing a methodology for aligning these processes throughout product lifecycles. It discusses tools which can be used to achieve these goals, and, in a number of case studies, shows how the tools and methodology have been used to improve a variety of academic and business systems.

Book Description :

The world of software development methodology has become a bit of a cottage industry. Philosophical divisions and dogma laced with branding and driven by profit motive are commonplace. Re-invention replaces integration due to a lack of collaboration. A pragmatic perspective however would be to leverage all past experience in context when approaching modern software engineering challenges. For example, issues faced by the Agile community related to agility at scale and technical debt have already been addressed before by other communities. SDLC 3.0 represents the rationalization of modern software engineering methods into a Complex Adaptive System of practices. It leverages Control Systems Engineering theory to explain Agile beyond a tacit and anecdotal basis such that the pace of modern practice adoption can accelerate. With "more for less" now being as important as "being agile," it articulates blueprints of the Lean IT Enterprise. Who should read this book: . - If you are an Agilist and tired of having to pause when asked the question "What is Agile.." - If you are a Traditionalist and you would like to learn why Agile is a better approach - if someone would just explain "why it works" in a credible way.. - If you are an Executive and you are faced with a fiduciary duty to influence IT investment outcomes. A blueprint of a Lean IT Enterprise is valuable to you. . - If you are a Researcher and you are tired of fads and brands, and want to ground Agile in applied science and rigorous mathematics. . - If you are a Methodologist and you believe that the cottage industry must stop, and that we must get past fragmentation and tacit or anecdotal evidence.. - If you are a Practitioner and you can't afford to pontificate on which "pure" wholesale method to leverage when faced with the "realities on the ground." . - If you are an independent thinker, a centrist. - If you are a pragmatist.
