Systems Engineering Tools & Techniques


"Give us the tools and we will do the job" - Winston Churchill

Systems Engineering requires a toolbox of “Systems Tools” that will allow the team to understand customer requirements, explore design options, optimise designs, make designs robust, validate design and realise system designs.

Systems Tools are primarily concerned with generating and managing information.

A few Systems Tools are:

Context Diagram
Functional Failure Mode and Effects Analysis 
Function Means Analysis
Functional Modelling
Holistic Requirements Model
Matrix Diagram
N2 Analysis
Need Means Analysis
Pugh Matrix
Quality Function Deployment
Stakeholder Map
- Systemic Textual Analysis
- The Analytic Hierarchy Process
- Viewpoint Analysis
