Systems Integration and Development

Course #SE4151

Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months


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.
