All the Information Needed to Acquire and Support Complex Engineering

Engineering systems such as an aircraft or frigates are highly complex and specifically designed to meet the customer's requirements. This important book from Woodhead Publishing will create a new operational view of modern acquisition, design, services and support systems.

Engineering systems acquisition and support, edited by J P T Mo, RMIT University and A Sinha, Defence Materiel Organization, Australia.

Engineering Systems Acquisition and Support will provide the information necessary to acquire and support complex engineering expected to last for a long time. Chapters in the first half of the book will examine the life cycles of these systems, their design, testing and certification, and the principles behind their acquisition. The second half of the book will review topics including operations support and logistics, systems maintenance, reliability and upgrades, and performance and risk analysis, ending with a discussion of the need for continuous improvements in these systems.

With broad coverage of both engineering and business perspectives of complex engineering systems, this book will be an invaluable resource for systems engineering courses at university level, and a general textbook for professional engineers, systems managers, acquisition officers and operations managers. Research students will also benefit strongly from this book.

Engineering Systems Acquisition and Support:

  • creates a new operational view of modern acquisition, design, services and support systems
  • applies enterprise modelling and analysis techniques to develop a whole systems view
  • takes the systems engineering approach to services system design and support
  • takes the systems engineering approach to services system design and support
  • broad coverage of both engineering and business perspectives of complex engineering systems
