Limiting Our Thinking: The Challenge of Defining the Opportunity Horizon for Systems Engineering

Some disciplines are “invented” or, more accurately, “evolve” as ways of solving specific, difficult problems. Principles and techniques are developed to cope with the knotty aspects of such problems. This was the path that led to systems engineering. First discussed by Bell Labs, systems engineering arose across several decades primarily …

Bringing a Systems Perspective to Communication

For any issue of meaningful complexity where multiple specialists must come together to develop a solution, systems engineers sit at the technical heart of the solution. We strive to fully understand the problem space, fully understand the bounds associated with the possible implementation technologies, and ultimately expand the trade space …
