Systems Engineering : An Approach to Information-Based Design Paperback
For Systems Engineering courses in industrial engineering departments. While being an experiment within itself to teach normative design theory, this comprehensive text treats engineering design as a decision-making process, which it is, from a quantitative point of view.
This opens a host of well- developed methods to application, including a mathematically rigorous treatment of risk and uncertainty in design.
Largely, these methods come from other fields, such as economics, operations research, decision theory, and game theory.
The book is designed to assist the student by defining the boundaries of a discipline, providing order for the learning process, and assisting the student in self testing.
