SI4021 Systems Engineering for Product Development

Systems engineers flow requirements down to detailed elements, integrate elements, and verify system performance. This course concentrates on the structural and technical elements of system engineering necessary in the product development domain. Multidisciplinary activities leading to requirements analysis, design trades, and integrated product-process development are complemented by current best manufacturing practices and design for cost principles. Structured methods, decision analysis, and quality engineering foundations are emphasized. Case studies from a variety of industrial contexts are presented and discussed. This course is team taught by experts from several disciplines. Prerequisites: None.
