This book provides systems engineers and analysts with the concepts, methodologies, models and tools needed to understand and implement the systems approach.* NEW - Updates coverage throughout to reflect the most current practices in the field. * NEW - Features new or expanded coverage of many topics, including...* Design for producibility, disposability, and affordability. * Quality Function Deployment (QFD). * Failure Mode, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA). * Fault-Tree Analysis (FTA). * Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM). * Operator Task Analysis (OTA). * Total productive maintenance. * Technical Performance Measures (TPMs). * Functional analysis and requirements allocation. * Design Dependent Parameters (DDPs). * Top-down, integrated, life-cycle perspective addresses overall product life-cycle. Evolves from identification of a consumer need to design and development, production/construction, distribution, system utilization and support, retirement and material recycling and/or disposal. * Emphasizes the systems engineering process with a step-by-step approach. * Covers the integration of a number of design disciplines essential to the implementation of systems engineering, such as: * Reliability. * Maintainability. * Human factors. * Supportability. * Producibility. * Disposability. * Affordability. * Emphasizes the application of theoretical constructs, providing examples, case studies, problems and exercises based on real-world industrial experience. * Includes analytical tools that aid students in converting theory to application and practitioners in solving on-the-job problems. * Integrates a wealth of case studies, over 300 figures, numerous tables, and over 430 end-of-chapter questions and more
