Course Description:
A study of the design, development, direction, management, and control of  the systems engineering process.  Emphasis is placed on the application of  quantitative and qualitative techniques to systems analysis, evaluation and  performance.  Prerequisite: MA120.  3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
The student is expected to read all material, complete all assignments and attend all class meetings. The class will consist of lectures, occasional videos, internet sites and student interaction.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Define a system. The students should include the classifications of systems (natural, human-made, physical, conceptual, static, dynamic, closed and open) definitions and elements.
  2. Explain the system design process. The students should include in their discussions conceptual system design; preliminary system design, detail design and development; and system test and evaluation.
  3. Describe several decisions and models in decision making as related to systems analysis. The student should calculate expected value, laplace, maximin, maximax, present value, future value, and break even analysis.
  4. Explain and apply queuing theory. The student should be able to evaluate a single channel queuing model.
  5. Explain the factors involved in designing for operational feasibility. Discussions should include reliability, maintainability, usability, supportability, producibility, disposability and lifecycle cost.
  6. Describe a System Engineering Management Plan (SEMP).


Core Assessment:


Class Assessment:
The class will consist of two tests, a mid term examination given the 4th week of class and a final examination given the last week of class.

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "WH".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
