This chapter focused on the key systems engineering element of systems architecting. As suggested, this element is a cornerstone of the systems engineering process. Strong emphasis has been placed on the generation and evaluation of alternatives, and on avoiding the tendency to leap to judgment with respect to a preferred system architecture. The roles of evaluation criteria, an evaluation framework, technical performance measurement, trade-off and sensitivity analyses, and modeling and simulation were also discussed. An attempt has been made to focus on principles as well as on an illustrative demonstration of how these principles are converted into practice. The Appendix shows several additional examples of how these principles may be applied to a variety of systems architecting situations and problems.
