Mechanical Engineering - Systems and Control Engineering
Systems engineering refers to the process of designing and managing complex systems over their life cycles. This discipline is an integration of engineering management and engineering. It is concerned with optimization methods, risk management and work processes of large and complex projects. It focuses on the formulation of various engineering concepts. This area of study has been divided into three types. These are product systems engineering, service systems engineering and enterprise systems engineering. The field finds its applications in other areas such as defense and aerospace, software development, electronics and communications, and information and technology. Configuration management, interface design, operations research, mechatronic engineering, proposal engineering, industrial engineering and cognitive systems engineering are some of the allied of this discipline. This book attempts to understand the multiple branches that fall under this discipline and how such concepts have practical applications. It also unfolds the innovative aspects of this field which will be crucial for the holistic understanding of the subject matter. Those with an interest in the systems engineering field would find this book helpful.
