Learning Outcome

Modules in Systems Engineering

Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering focusing on how complex engineering projects should be designed and managed over their life cycles.


Start

In this module you will learn to identify and evaluate the importance of relationships within the process and assess the relative importance of stakeholders. You will also be able to classify a systems engineering project in terms of the balance of demands, choice and constraints.


Start

The use of systems concepts and models forms part of a process of investigation that is often described in the literature of systems, design and decision-making as a ‘methodology’, where a methodology is a process of enquiry, not a method to produce a predetermined result. This module will outline briefly the two major generic variants of systems methodologies.


Start

This module outlines the origin of systems engineering and systems analysis. We will look at the theory behind the Society for General Systems Theory, the philosophical theory of John Dewey and the use of systems engineering in organisations such as Bell Laboratories.


Start

Module 5 will attempt to give definitive definitions of systems engineering and analysis. The aims and principles of engineering, and also a definition of process will be outlined, and we will also go back over the systems engineering methodology used in the course.


Start

Systems’ thinking is the process of understanding how things influence one another within a whole.


Start

Systems’ modelling is the interdisciplinary study of the use of models to conceptualize and construct systems.


Start

Systems diagramming is essential when planning a project. This will allow you to show your thinking regarding an idea and whether or not these ideas will answer the design problem.


Start

You must score 80% or more to pass this assessment.
