What is Systems Engineering?

Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach for the development and realisation of complex systems which demand a high standard of lifetime performance.

A complex system consists of a number of subsystems and components that interact and collectively achieve the desired performance. Systems Engineering is the bridge between various traditional engineering disciplines. It provides methods and techniques to integrate design and functionality work across disciplinary and organisational boundaries.

This includes adopting appropriate and future-oriented technology and solutions, as well as adopting modern principles for maintenance and upgrading. The goal is to provide a quality and cost-efficient system that meets user needs throughout the system’s lifecycle.
