Systems Engineering: Design Principles and Models

1st Edition


Dahai Liu
August 26, 2015

For the past several decades, systems engineering has grown rapidly in its scope and application and shown significant benefits for the design of large, complex systems. However, current systems engineering textbooks are either too technical or at a high conceptual level. Written by an expert with m...

Systems Design and Engineering: Facilitating Multidisciplinary Development Projects

1st Edition


G. Maarten Bonnema, Karel T. Veenvliet, Jan F. Broenink
December 15, 2015

As its name implies, the aim of Systems Design and Engineering: Facilitating Multidisciplinary Development Projects is to help systems engineers develop the skills and thought processes needed to successfully develop and implement engineered systems. Such expertise typically does not come through st...

Individual Latent Error Detection (I-LED): Making Systems Safer

1st Edition

Justin R.E. Saward, Neville A. Stanton
October 16, 2018

Undetected human error in aircraft maintenance creates a latent error condition that can contribute to undesirable outcomes. Individual Latent Error Detection (I-LED) acts as an additional system safety control that helps an engineer recall past errors through environmental cues. This book...

Understanding Molecules: Lectures on Chemistry for Physicists and Engineers

1st Edition

Franco Battaglia, Thomas F. George
October 10, 2018

Chemistry is a subject that many students with differing goals have to tackle. This unique general chemistry textbook is tailored to more mathematically-oriented engineering or physics students. The authors emphasize the principles underlying chemistry rather than chemistry itself and the almost...

Adarsh Anand, Mangey Ram
October 09, 2018

This book provides the latest research advances in the field of system reliability assurance and engineering. It contains reference material for applications of reliability in system engineering, offering a theoretical sound background with adequate numerical illustrations. Included are concepts...

Human Factors of a Global Society: A System of Systems Perspective

1st Edition

Tadeusz Marek, Waldemar Karwowski, Marek Frankowicz, Jussi Kantola, Pavel Zgaga
October 01, 2018

During the last 60 years the discipline of human factors (HF) has evolved alongside progress in engineering, technology, and business. Contemporary HF is clearly shifting towards addressing the human-centered design paradigm for much larger and complex societal systems, the effectiveness of which...

Systems Thinking in Practice: Applications of the Event Analysis of Systemic Teamwork Method

It introduces the latest thinking on the Event Analysis of Systemic Teamwork (EAST) method, together with practical guidance and applications in domains as diverse as: air traffic...

Systems Engineering for Projects: Achieving Positive Outcomes in a Complex World

1st Edition

Lory Mitchell Wingate
September 14, 2018

Systems engineering has been applied to some of the most important projects of our time, including those that have helped humanity explore the world and the universe, expand our technical abilities, and enhance the quality of human life. Without formal training in systems engineering, the...

Systems Thinker's Toolbox: Tools for Managing Complexity

1st Edition

Joseph Eli Kasser
September 13, 2018

This book provides more than 100 tools based on systems thinking and beyond. Each tool is described, and when necessary, examples are provided of how each of them can be used. Some of the simplest tools can be combined into more complex tools. The tools may be things such as lists, causal loops,...

Engineering Emergence: A Modeling and Simulation Approach

1st Edition

Larry B. Rainey, Mo Jamshidi
August 23, 2018

This book examines the nature of emergence in context of man-made (i.e. engineered) systems, in general, and system of systems engineering applications, specifically. It investigates emergence to interrogate or explore the domain space from a modeling and simulation perspective to facilitate...
