Systems Engineering by Ricardo Valerdi
Industrial Engineer's quarterly column about systems engineering (February 2012)
What is systems engineering?
It is an honor to be invited to help inaugurate a new column in Industrial Engineer on the topic of systems engineering. I have spent most of my career at the intersection of industrial engineering and systems engineering, so I am excited about the opportunity to further the dialog about the mutual benefits that exist between these professions. The goal is to provide insight into the state of the art and practice of systems engineering and related concepts as they pertain to the industrial engineering community.
