Introduction to Systems Engineering: From Theory to Practice

Moshe Weiler, PhD
guest lecture
Gordon Center for Systems Engineering
Technion – Israel Institute of Technology

Systems Engineering (SE) is a transdisciplinary* approach to enabling the successful realization, use, and retirement of engineered systems, using systems principles and concepts and scientific, technological, and management methods.

In this short introduction session to SE, we shall focus on the transdisciplinary and holistic approach (via the T Model), and its application in the SPIKE Vs. JAVELIN missiles use cases.

I will also introduce the System Development Life Cycle Models, describing in detail the Vee Model that is the building blocks of SE processes, and clarify the differences between Verification and Validation.

We shall summarize this session by introducing the LCC Committed Model, showing the dissonance within the System Development Life Cycle from where the failures created to where the failures discovered in a project.

*Transdisciplinary – crosses many disciplinary boundaries to create a holistic approach.

The talk will be given in Hebrew
