Based on the reality that today's engineers need a broad range of decision-making skills, this unique reference draws together--into a single comprehensive volume--all the fundamental principles of systems analysis (both hard and soft systems), economics (particularly microeconomics), probability, and statistics that engineers need to develop a rich, multifaceted perspective from which to tackle--and solve--complex engineering problems. The emphasis throughout is on presenting the fundamental concepts and their practical engineering applications, unobscured by complicated mathematics. Using a large number of worked examples, it integrates the power of quantitative analysis with the conceptual richness of capital budgeting and microeconomics into the elements of systems engineering. Coverage is broad-based and applicable for engineers in practically all branches of engineering. The Systems Approach. Problem Solving in Engineering & Planning. Basic Engineering Economics & Evaluation. Basic Micro Economics for Engineers & Planners. Principles of Probability (Probability Theory; Random Variables and Probability Distributions; Joint Probability Functions and Correlated Variables). Principles of Statistics (Estimation of Statistical Parameters and Testing Validity of Distribution Functions; Hypothesis Testing, Analysis of Variance, Regression and Correlation Analysis). Basic Hard Systems Engineering. Basic Soft Systems Thinking & Analysis. For Civil, Chemical, Electrical, Environmental, Mechanical, and Industrial Engineers, Urban Planners, Architects, and Construction Managers.

This book is a contribution to the definition of a model based system engineering (MBSE) approach, designed to meet the objectives laid out by the INCOSE. After pointing out the complexity that jeopardizes a lot of system developments, the book examines fundamental aspects of systems under consideration. It goes on to address methodological issues and proposes a methodic approach of MBSE that provides, unlike current practices, systematic and integrated model-based engineering processes. An annex describes relevant features of the VHDL-AMS language supporting the methodological issues described in the book.

This highly practical book provides a user guide for both new and experienced practicing systems engineers to execute fundamental systems engineering on real programs. Unlike the theoretical discussions in other books, this title highlights the practices, processes, and procedures that set the stage for the subsequent subsystem design, integration, and test phases of typical programs. This tailored approach enhances independent research and development, prototype, and demonstration efforts. The book is split into four sections to provide a complete introduction to systems engineering theory and practice. Topics covered include: what is systems engineering; phases of systems engineering; system trade studies; performance-driven requirements; system performance evaluation; architecting process; program complexity evaluation; use of leading indicators; systems engineering tools; applications of core system engineering processes; advanced topics in systems engineering; and systems engineering management and development. Written by an experienced author in the field, Fundamentals of Systems Engineering includes examples and case studies drawn from his actual career experiences with applications in defense and radar systems, and is amply illustrated with clear original charts and diagrams to support text explanations of the many complex steps. This is essential reading for researchers and students of systems modelling in academia; Systems engineers, requirements engineers, software engineers, systems managers, requirements managers, and systems modellers in industry.

A new edition of a bestselling industrial and systems engineering reference, Handbook of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Second Edition provides students, researchers, and practitioners with easy access to a wide range of industrial engineering tools and techniques in a concise format. This edition expands the breadth and depth of coverage, emphasizing new systems engineering tools, techniques, and models. See What’s New in the Second Edition: Section covering safety, reliability, and quality Section on operations research, queuing, logistics, and scheduling Expanded appendix to include conversion factors and engineering, systems, and statistical formulae Topics such as control charts, engineering economy, health operational efficiency, healthcare systems, human systems integration, Lean systems, logistics transportation, manufacturing systems, material handling systems, process view of work, and Six Sigma techniques The premise of the handbook remains: to expand the breadth and depth of coverage beyond the traditional handbooks on industrial engineering. The book begins with a general introduction with specific reference to the origin of industrial engineering and the ties to the Industrial Revolution. It covers the fundamentals of industrial engineering and the fundamentals of systems engineering. Building on this foundation, it presents chapters on manufacturing, production systems, and ergonomics, then goes on to discuss economic and financial analysis, management, information engineering, and decision making. Two new sections examine safety, reliability, quality, operations research, queuing, logistics, and scheduling. The book provides an updated collation of the body of knowledge of industrial and systems engineering. The handbook has been substantively expanded from the 36 seminal chapters in the first edition to 56 landmark chapters in the second edition. In addition to the 20 new chapters, 11 of the chapters in the first edition have been updated with new materials. Filling the gap that exists between the traditional and modern practice of industrial and systems engineering, the handbook provides a one-stop resource for teaching, research, and practice.

Batch chemical processing has in the past decade enjoyed a return to respectability as a valuable, effective, and often preferred mode of process operation. This book provides the first comprehensive and authoritative coverage that reviews the state of the art development in the field of batch chemical systems engineering, applications in various chemical industries, current practice in different parts of the world, and future technical challenges. Developments in enabling computing technologies such as simulation, mathematical programming, knowledge based systems, and prognosis of how these developments would impact future progress in the batch domain are covered. Design issues for complex unit processes and batch plants as well as operational issues such as control and scheduling are also addressed.
