Systems Engineering: What And Why?

INTRODUCTION
The fundamental principal of system engineering is for application of development of complex system .Topics include requirements analysis, concept definition, system synthesis, design tradeoffs, risk assessment, interface definition, engineering design, system integration, and related systems engineering activities. The course defines the breadth and depth of the knowledge that the systems engineer must acquire concerning the characteristics of the diverse components that constitute the total.

1. WHAT IS SYSTEM ENGINEERING
Systems Engineering is a subject that has developed relatively recently. Its main aim is to consider engineering systems as a whole rather than just to concentrate on one particular component within them. Systems Engineering in robotics. Autonomous self-assembly of modules gives new form and function to solve previously impossible problems. Systems engineering is a methodical, disciplined approach for the design, realization, technical management, operations, and retirement of a system. A “system” is a construct or collection of different elements that together produce results not obtainable by the elements alone. This aim arises from the fact that almost everything around us that we use daily is a relatively complex system made up of a number of different components, which are likely to include mechanical components, electronic components, computer hardware/software and possibly other components as well.To try to explain in a little more detail, Systems Engineering covers the mathematical modelling, design and analysis of systems, concentrating particularly on how the different components in a system fit together and ensuring that the system is designed such that all components interact together in an efficient way.

2. WHY SYSTEM ENGINEERING
System engineering have methods and tools that enable faculty and students to model, design, analyze, and optimize human-made and physical systems within a broad array of applications. SE methodologies usually account for such real-world complexities as uncertainty, constraints, multiple objectives, and the relationships among the various parts or subsystems that constitute the system being studied This, in turn, is driving the need for more sophisticated SE methods to manage this complex and interconnected world. Thus, Systems Engineering cuts across the traditional engineering departments as a discipline that “enables”
