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.
