Two Systems Engineering Perspectives

Over the years, there have been many descriptions of systems engineering, its internal processes, and its management [7.1]. These have ranged from the first book on systems engineering [7.2], to the first systems engineering standard [7.3], to systems engineering management guides [7.4], to a variety of more current texts on systems engineering [7.5, 7.6, 7.7, 7.8, 7.9, 7.10, 7.11]. In most cases, the systems engineering process has been described in some type of flow or activity chart that has embodied the elements of systems engineering, similar to the chart shown in Figure 2.2. Here we provide a brief overview of two such representations, one drawn from Military Standard 499B and the other from a series of processes defined by a government agency, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
