SE 51000 - Systems Engineering
Systems Engineering (SE) is a structured approach to developing interdisciplinary and complex products. This course introduces SE methodologies spanning the product development life cycle from initial scope definition through delivery of the prototype or first production article. SE techniques are used to define and manage requirements, analyze and optimize product architectures, develop comprehensive designs, plan and supervise manufacturing, test and evaluation, and implement the production line. SE also provides techniques for ensuring that system-level requirements (i.e., reliability, maintainability, safety, etc.) are incorporated into the final product. Spanning all these activities are a set of SE analysis and control functions that continuously assess and manage the product scope, quality, configuration, interfaces, and performance.
