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
