William N. Sweet, now retired, was associate department head of the Fleet Systems Department at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.
Samuel J. Seymour is the systems engineering vice chair at the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering. He served under Professor Kossiakoff for more than twenty-five years.
Steven M. Biemer is an instructor at the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering. He assisted Professor Kossiakoff in developing the first edition of this book.
Topics will be expanded to include advanced Systems Engineering concepts that go beyond the traditional systems engineering areas
Will included updated DOD and commercial standards, architectures and processes
New sections that include object oriented design and systems architecting
Improved discussions on requirements, systems management, functional analysis, analysis of alternatives, decision support, operational analysis and many others
Expanded discussions on the Post-Development stage
Updated Problems and References
"The book is very readable and gives a particularly good grounding in the subject of systems engineering. It is therefore a valuable volume for any electronics engineering student, practising engineer, or as a reference for a company designing any form of equipment needing a systems engineering approach."
