This course provides a framework within which to develop an understanding of the processes and management practices associated with the systems engineering discipline. The underlying systems engineering process is presented and is shown to be applied repeatedly throughout the entire system lifecycle. Attention then focuses on the broad topic of systems engineering management and some of the activities normally associated with engineering management are detailed. The course also introduces tools commonly used in systems engineering and details how systems engineering coexists with other disciplines (particularly project management, quality management and integrated logistics support management).
