1. SYSTEM DESIGN

 

• This field is largely overlooked, not because it is unimportant, but because most engineers are educated in selected disciplines, and this is an interdisciplinary topic.

 

• Most of the successful uses of this topic have been by computer system designers, electrical engineers, and aerospace designers.

 

• The basic set of problems in any system design are,

- what functions are needed

- how do the modules interact

- what do we do when a module fails

- how reliable is a system

- etc.
