Case Studies illustrating how the systems methodology may be used to address a diverse range of issues and situations, including conceiving an new defence capability, proposing a feasible way to tackle global warming, tackling enterprise interventions, how and why things can go wrong, and many more.
Systems Engineering will give an immeasurable advantage to managers, practitioners, and consultants in a wide range of organizations and fields including police, defence, procurement, communications, transport, management, electrical, electronic, aerospace, requirements, software and computer engineering.
