SYE602 Advanced System Design

Lead Faculty: Dr. Shekar Viswanathan

Course Description

Advanced system design concepts and details the methodologies of design for operational feasibility: system reliability, maintainability, usability (human factors), supportability (serviceability), producibility and disposability, and affordability (life-cycle costing). The course also provides an introduction to systems engineering management, including planning, organization, and program control and evaluation.

Learning Outcomes

  • Utilize design for X, design-dependent parameters, during the design of complex systems: reliability, maintainability, usability (human factors), supportability (serviceability), producibility and disposability, and affordability (life-cycle costing).
  • For each design parameter: Develop and utilize metrics of each, Plan for system life cycle consideration of each, Utilize analysis methods of each, Utilize test and evaluation methods of each.
  • Develop a systems engineering management plan (SEMP).
  • Develop a statement of work (SOW).
  • Define various organizational structures that create proper systems engineering environments.
  • Develop a program management plan to manage review and reporting requirements and risk issues.
