|Title: ||Total System Management: strategic engineering design|
|Authors: ||Brooker, Peter|
|Issue Date: ||2005|
|Abstract: ||The subtitle is ‘Strategic Engineering Design’. The origins of these words are very
interesting. ‘Strategic’ is from the Classical Greek for leading an army.
Engineering is from the Latin ingenium word for skill. Design has many meanings:
an attractive one is to ‘plan and execute artistically’. The discussion here is about
the things that need to be done to achieve these very positive words, with
engineering used in the widest sense. The main need is for ‘system
understanding’ of potential systems.|
