SE4151: Systems Integration and Development - NPS Online
This course provides the student with an understanding of the context and framework for planning and carrying out integration and development, including emergent behavior, manufacturing, and production of complex systems. Topics covered include systems and SoS integration and production with consideration of multiple suitability aspects, including availability, reliability, maintainability, embedded software, human factors, producibility, interoperability, supportability, emergent behavior, life cycle cost, schedule, and performance. Types of systems considered are large-scale spanning applications from purely technical to socio-technical. Students work in teams to complete a systems engineering project to analyze, integrate, and produce a working prototype system.
Included in degrees & certificates
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
Develop the cognitive structures to carry out integration and development, accounting for the impacts of emergence.
Apply appropriate tools to systems and of systems integration.
Incorporate the suitability aspects of reliability, maintainability, human factors, producibility, interoperability, supportability, and lifecycle cost issues.
Recognize the key variables that drive integration effectiveness.
Evaluate existing designs, developments, or operational products and services to identify integration difficulties.
