System Life-Cycle [Engineering]
M.A.Ramirez | December 04, 2012

Objectives • Define system life cycle • Identify the phases of a system life cycle and activities associated • Identify principles and approaches in designing for the system life cycle • Identify problems in a system life cycle • Enumerate some system process models .

s really engage in overall system design” . “Industrial engineers design industrial systems” “Few I.E.Introduction Last meeting ….

engineers must turn its focus on lifecycle engineering .Introduction • Industrial engineers are systems engineers • Classical engineers has focused mainly on product performance as the main objective rather on development of the overall system of which the product is a part • Accordingly.

The System Life Cycle • Fundamental to application of systems design/ engineering is understanding the system life-cycle process illustrated for the product in the figure below .

The System Life Cycle • The significance of focusing on the system life cycle is that decisions made early in the Acquisition Phase are informed of the proposed and intended activities in the Utilization Phase (e. Maintenance and Operation.g.) • A life cycle focus can save money in the long term – Sixty percent of the errors in system development originate in the systems requirements analysis . etc.

The System Life Cycle • Classification is generic • Both the acquisition and utilization process may involve both the customer and the producer • Detailed presentation of the elaborate technological activities and interactions that must be integrated over the system lifecycle process is shown in your handout :) .

not only in the acquisition of new systems but also in reengineering of existing systems .The System Life Cycle • Progression is iterative from left to right. and not serial • Life cycle functions described and illustrated are generic • It is essential that this process be implemented completely.

The System Life Cycle A. IDENTIFYING THE NEED/ CONCEPTUAL DESIGN  producing a clearly-defined set of user requirements at the system level  clearly defining the functional requirements of the system  establishes a Functional Baseline (the whats and whys of the system) .

indicates that the functional requirements have been grouped together logically and allocated to subsystem level requirements which combine to form the overall system design   .The System Life Cycle B. PRELIMINARY DESIGN  Aim: convert the Functional Baseline into a preliminary definition of the system configuration or architecture (the hows of the system) The stage where functional design is translated into physical design Result: Allocated Baseline -.

The System Life Cycle C. testing and evaluation Product Baseline . DETAIL DESIGN and DEVELOPMENT  Development of the individual subsystems and components in the system   Prototyping.

PRODUCTION and/or CONSTRUCTION  system components will be produced in accordance with the detailed design specifications Configuration audits  .The System Life Cycle D.

PHASEOUT. & DISPOSAL   Operational use and system support Disassembly and disposal of elements or components of the system without causing environmental degradation .The System Life Cycle E. PRODUCT USE.

The System Life Cycle  Systems engineering activities may continue to support any modification activity that maybe required rectify performance shortfalls meet changing operational requirements or external environment enhance current performance or reliability maintain ongoing support to the system .

Designing for the Life Cycle Get ¼ sheet! “What is the meaning of designing within the system life-cycle context compared to the old school definition of design?” .

Designing for the Life Cycle • Life-cycle focused design is simultaneously responsive to customer needs and to life-cycle outcomes • Design should not only transform a need into a definitive product and system configuration • It should ensure the design’s compatibility with related physical and functional requirements .

Designing for the Life Cycle • System life cycle goes beyond the product life cycle • It embraces the life cycle of the manufacturing process as well as the life cycle of the product support and service capability .

Designing for the Life Cycle • 3 concurrent life cycles progressing in parallel .

consideration should simultaneously be given to its production • This gives rise to a parallel life cycle for bringing a manufacturing capability into being .Designing for the Life Cycle • Need for the product comes into focus first • During conceptual design of the product.

Designing for the Life Cycle • 3 concurrent life cycles progressing in parallel .

but often neglected until product and production design is completed • Needed to service the product during use and to support the mfg capability during its cycle .Designing for the Life Cycle • Third life cycle is of great importance too.

the manufacturing process. and the support capability • Not easy to achieve • Progress in this area is facilitated by new technologies that make more timely acquisition and use of design information possible .Designing for the Life Cycle • Communication and coordination is needed to develop the product.

Designing for the Life Cycle .

Systems Engineering Process Models .

Waterfall Process Model .

Waterfall Process Model • Introduced by Royce in 1970 • Initially used for software development • Each phase is carried out to completion in sequence until the product is delivered .

“Vee” Process Model .

“Vee” Process Model • Developed by Forsberg and Mooz • the “Vee” describes and models the technical aspect of the project cycle • Starts with user needs (upper left) • Ends with user-validated systems (upper right) .

Spiral Process Model .

Spiral Process Model • Developed by Boehm in 1986 • Introduces a risk-driven approach for the development of products and systems • Iterative and proceeds through the several phases .

What the designer specified What the programmers implemented What the user wanted .System Life Cycle Problems What the requirement stated.

System Life Cycle Problems • It leads to misunderstandings between users and developers about what is to be delivered • The information used in one subsystem is frequently needed by other subsystems • Systems grow and change .

System Life Cycle Problems • The SDLC needs an integration stage that identifies all inter-relationships • Every system is part of a larger system and can be broken into smaller subsystem • The numerous components of a system must communicate with each other .

people-intensive system that is complex and unresponsive to organizational needs . inflexible.System Life Cycle Problems • The most specialized systems are the least adaptable • Slow.
