Summary " ... This book is about the future. It points an arrow in the direction of systems engineering evolution."--The Foreword by Joseph K. DeRosa, PhD, The MITRE Corporation, Bedford, Massachusetts, USA.
Although usually well-funded, systems development projects are often late to market and over budget, out of date before they can be deployed, or cancelled before delivery. Clearly, it is time for a new approach. With coverage ranging from the complex characteristics and behaviors of enterprises to the challenges they pose for engineering and technology, Enterprise Systems Engineering: Advances in the Theory and Practice examines the impacts of enterprise processes and leading-edge technologies on the evolution of an enterprise.
With the help of expert contributors, editors George Rebovich, Jr. and Brian E. White discuss emerging methods essential to successful systems engineering. They define and examine key building blocks of the evolving field of enterprise systems engineering. Providing guidance on how to expand the engineering of systems to the engineering of enterprises, the book addresses the issues of the changing nature of systems engineering, lays out a recommended direction for the future, and provides a basis for moving toward a mature discipline with the expanded scope.
This new systems thinking is emerging at the intersection of seminal ideas from modern system thinkers, the broad discipline of information technology, and the theory of complex adaptive systems, particularly those from ecology and social systems. Part of this new system thinking requires a replacement of the notion that specific engineering outcomes or goals can always be assured with one that seeks to shape, improve, or increase the value of engineering outcomes through thoughtful interventions in the ever-increasing numbers of circumstances in which we are not fully in control. This book introduces and examines new and emerging modes of thought increasingly recognized as essential to successful systems engineering in enterprises. --Book Jacket.
