Systems Engineering by Adedeji Badiru
Industrial Engineer's quarterly column about systems engineering (May 2012)
A systems view of military operations
There is as much people power in the military as there are highly technical assets. Both are embedded within very strict processes. The military addresses the challenge of linking people, technology and processes by applying systems engineering. Systems interconnectivity is an essential element of building and sustaining military teamwork. Product development, deployment and joint operations are just a few of the systems-critical requirements that affect the military’s role both in peace and wartime. As goes the military, so goes the welfare of a nation, not just for national defense, but also for national economic stability and advancement. This makes it imperative for the civilian population to pay attention to the systems engineering movement in the military.
