In the aircraft industry, systems engineering provides a method to think strategically about how systems are interconnected across the industry. It crosses disciplinary boundaries within engineering to integrate complex systems. Systems Engineering for Aerospace applies insights gained from systems engineering to real-world industry problems. The book describes how to measure and manage an aircraft program from start to finish. It helps readers determine input, process, and output requirements, from planning to testing; learn how to simplify design through production from planning to execution; and acquire a lifecycle strategy using Integrated Master Plan/Schedule (IMP/IMS), by identifying influences of cost drivers on people, product and process. The book directly addresses improved aircraft system design tools and processes which, when implemented, contribute to simpler, lower cost and safer airplanes. The book helps the reader understand how a product should be designed, identifying the customer's requirements, considering all possible components of an integrated master plan, and executing according to the plan with an integrated master schedule. The author demonstrates that systems engineering, applied to aircraft manufacture, offers a means for aircraft companies to become more effective, and more profitable
